Students from seven nations: Volkswagen starts the second generation of Faculty 73
The second generation of Faculty 73 is more diverse than the first, with nine percent women and participants from more than seven nations (Turkey, Spain, Italy, Yemen, Egypt, Mexico Malaysia). The recruitment of two refugees is worthy of special mention. As level B2 in German is needed for participation in training, the Group refugee aid body will be providing language courses for the two students concerned.
Mohammed Alashtal, who succeeded in the selection procedure and originally came from Jordan, says “Faculty 73 is a new chapter in my life and will hopefully be the start of a career with Volkswagen ”
Christian Matzedda, Member of the Works Council and Deputy Chairman of the General Works Council on the Education Committee, says: We can already speak of a success story today. With Faculty 73, we are developing the software skills we will need in the future. This is a key element in the Volkswagen strategy. The program gives impressive proof of the benefits of good project cooperation between HR, the departments and the Works Council. I wish the participants every success on their exciting program.
