Roth welcomes new apprentices


The new apprentices for this year began their training at Roth on 3 August 2020. HR managers, trainers, the workers’ council as well as youth and apprentice representatives welcomed the new entrants. A total of 20 young people began their working life. 

The group includes apprentices who are training to become electronic technicians, warehouse clerks, a specialist in warehouse logistics, industrial clerks, industry and process mechanics as well as a technical product designer. As this year’s training gets underway, there are a total of around 80 apprentices and “Studium Plus” students in the family company’s training programmes.
The career starters will complete their training at Roth Composite Machinery in Steffenberg and Burgwald, Roth Hydraulics in Eckelshausen and Roth Plastic Technology in Wolfgruben as well as Roth Werke in Buchenau. One of the new apprentices started at Roth’s subsidiary Becker Plastics in Datteln.

If they do well, Roth offers the apprentices the option of completing part of their training at a Roth company abroad.

High quota of apprentices
With a training quota of around nine per cent, Roth offers a higher than average number of training positions with many opportunities for continuing professional development. The retention rate for employment after training is currently more than 90 per cent.

The ideal combination of theory and practice

The industrial apprentices receive intensive theoretical and practical teaching from dedicated trainers at Roth Industries’ own central training workshop. The skills they learn equip the career starters for the challenges of day-to-day working life at an industrial company. The management apprentices follow an in-house training plan in the business management departments, where the emphasis is on practical knowledge. Their training is rounded off by in-house teaching covering the subjects taught at vocational college and preparing them for intermediate and final exams.
