WE CARE ABOUT THE HUMAN CAPITAL
Personnel of the future
No less important are the Foundation’s activities in preparing future personnel and professionalizing cooperation in the field of vocational training. In this regard, the annual conference “Engineers for Lublin” is organized to promote technical education and work in the Lublin industry.
The same goal was pursued by the “I work in Lublin” campaign organized in 2017, which showcased real stories of graduates of Lublin’s technical schools who are successfully pursuing careers in Lublin’s industry.
PROMOTION OF TECHNICAL FIELDS OF STUDY
Engineers for Lublin
“Engineers for Lublin” is a cyclical event dedicated to students in the final grades of elementary schools and technical schools. The main objective of the conference is to promote vocational education and technical fields of study, and consequently work in the Lublin industry, among young people who are facing the choice of a career path.
Innovative manufacturing management
The postgraduate program “Innovative Production Management” is conducted at the Faculty of Economics of Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin, and the LWP Foundation is their partner. Their program is based on the philosophy of continuous improvement (Kaizen), Lean Management and SixSigma. The direction is dedicated to employees involved in planning, implementation of production and service processes, implementation of logistics processes, quality management and continuous improvement. It is a solid portion of knowledge on modern business management, process optimization and implementation of changes to improve the efficiency of the organization.
80% of classes are practical (workshops, games, simulations). As part of the credit, study participants present real projects implemented in their companies during the course of study. So far, the average savings, generated from these implementations, amounted to 20 thousand PLN/project!
COOPERATION OF SCIENCE AND BUSINESS
For years, the Foundation, working with local authorities, has been trying to strengthen cooperation between business and technical schools. The projects implemented so far have aimed to increase the presence of students and teachers of practical vocational training at employers, where they could acquire up-to-date and, above all, needed skills and competencies, and thus smoothly enter the labor market in the future or educate people ready to work in industry.
On an ongoing basis, we invite companies belonging to the Cluster and operating in industry in the Lublin region to jointly develop good practices in cooperation with technical schools.
