Three apprentices from the Schindler Switzerland Vocational Training program will travel to China to broaden their experience and gain exposure to a new culture. The internship is organized in cooperation with Integrate Chinese Life – an organization dedicated to internships and study programs in China.

The interns selected for the internship include: Plant and Equipment Manufacturer – Simon Käppeli; Electronics Engineer – Janick Lang; and Designer – Ralph Harmath. They will work in China from July to August 2018.

Both countries benefit from the skills exchange. China is experiencing exceptional growth and the young professionals from Switzerland will provide required practical knowledge and experience. In addition, the apprentices will develop interpersonal skills such as autonomy, open-mindedness, problem-solving, and communication. This will benefit their future career as well as the company.

Strong markets such as China depend on good specialists. For this reason, Switzerland’s dual education system has attracted worldwide interest. As a leading training center, Schindler Switzerland’s Vocational Training program values experience exchange, networking and global cooperation.
