Dual vocational training as a cornerstone for further professional development
The training period is over: A total of 14 trainees from the various Roth companies successfully completed their vocational training this year. "They have shown great commitment and laid a great foundation for their further career with their training," said Human Resources Manager Michael Donges when handing over the specialist letters during a ceremony in the Manfred Roth atrium in Buchenau.
Also on behalf of the Roth family of shareholders, Michael Donges presented the examination certificates as well as additional cash prizes. Together with Hartmut Heck, head of the central training workshop, Ralf Freund, chairman of the works council, and Katharina Weigel, youth representative, they honoured the graduates for their good performance.
"We are particularly proud that seven of the trainees achieved the overall grade 'very good' or 'good'. The best performance is additionally honoured by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. In addition, three trainees brought their final exams forward by six months due to excellent performance. These results are impressive, they speak for our training concept and for the work of our trainers," says Michael Donges.
Almost all of the young professionals have been offered a job following their training, and all of them have accepted the offer. For some of the young professionals, learning continues directly: they will continue their academic education in the dual "StudiumPlus" programme.

Combination of theory and practice for best learning results
The industrial trainees receive intensive theoretical and practical knowledge transfer in Roth Industries' in-house, central training workshop. Roth also uses the digital learning platform ROOMS, which it developed itself. The system includes a media library with individual learning tasks, links to technical literature, table books, drawings and tutorials. Many tasks in the learning platform lead the trainees directly into practice.
The commercial trainees pass through the commercial departments on the basis of a company training plan. There, the focus is on practical knowledge. This is rounded off with in-company lessons in which vocational school topics are worked through and intermediate and final exams are prepared. Within the framework of the in-house Star Programme for stays abroad, a stay at one of the international Roth locations is also possible. The employment rate at Roth after the apprenticeship is currently over 90 percent.
