The ITK Group has been a successful partner of the Debrecen Vocational Training Centre in dual training for many years, so it was no question that we were represented at the first Hello Profession! – Road to the Future career choice exhibition and conference.
The primary aim of the exhibition, which took place on 11 and 12 October 2021, was to provide career guidance for graduating primary school students and career support for vocational school students in an interactive setting, in several locations of the impressive Nagyerdei Stadium in Debrecen.
Over the two days, around 70 exhibitors showed young people the many opportunities they have after leaving primary school to choose a vocational or technical school. Our company, Inter Traction Electrics Ltd., has been involved in technician training and practical training for engineers for many years, so we were delighted to take part in the DSZC careers event to show young people who are about to make a choice the many exciting opportunities in vehicle design and manufacturing.
At our interactive stand, visitors could try out the unusual life of a bus driver on a simulator, and in front of the venue they could admire the Mercedes-Benz REFORM-S School school bus developed and manufactured by Inter Traction Electrics Ltd. and our fully electric Mercedes-Benz eVito closed van!
In his welcome speech, Mayor László Papp stressed that the students will be able to find a job in Debrecen after their graduation.
“Debrecen is a city of opportunities, in many ways. But if we are talking about jobs, economic development and the creation of new jobs, then by all means,” he stressed.
In this spirit, György Kossa, the CEO of our company, also gave a presentation, who praised the joint work with the city and the vocational training centre, and encouraged young people to choose a profession locally, thus supporting the economic and social development of Debrecen County City.
But the event was not just for young people, there was also an emphasis on information and training for heads of institutions and teachers at seven different conferences.
“Our main goal is to address the class teachers of eighth graders, the principals and teachers of primary schools, to inform them about the new vocational training system and the economic environment of Debrecen”, said Zsolt Tirpák, Chancellor of the Debrecen Vocational Training Centre.
In total, around 2400 students visited the event and our stand over the two days. We sincerely hope that we were able to help many of them choose a career!
