Here at ttv, we have always seen training as a top priority. After all, good-quality training allows us tosecure the specialists of the future, which gives us an increasingly significant competitive advantage. But that's not the only reason. For our team with its high proportion of women, we have also created good conditions for our female employees with children. Although we are
of course rather more limited in this regard compared to larger companies,
our achievements here are something that we can be really proud of.
For example, our apprentice Sofia Schneider became pregnant during her training, and
of course needed to stop her training for the birth in November 2014.
Ms Schneider is now starting her 3-year apprenticeship again, and will be working on a very flexible part-time basis allowing her to complete her training as an office management
administrator and to gain a qualification at the end. The part-time apprenticeship
involves 31 hours a week: 2 days at vocational college and 3 days working part-time within
the company. And ttv of course bears the necessary childcare costs.
Andreas Kohlmus has been a trainee at ttv since September 2016, working towards qualification as a warehouse logistics specialist as part of a 3-year training course. He is 20 years
old, and after graduating from secondary school spend his voluntary social year at the
Lebenshilfe organisation in Senden, Germany, where he was responsible for the packaging sector and employee support. Thanks to his frequent holiday work in the warehouse sector,
he became increasingly interested in this area of work. His hobbies include snowboarding
and skating. We would like to wish all of our trainees every success and happiness in their vocational training.
