Liberty Czêstochowa wants to cooperate with schools

Czêstochowa Steelworks is recruiting new employees to ensure the supply of necessary personnel and professional succession. On the other hand, technical and trade schools try to adjust to the labour market needs and attract students by showing them possible career paths.
On the initiative of the City Hall’s Investor Service Centre Manager Anna Tymoshenko, the meeting was attended by the head of the city’s Education Department Rafa³ Piotrowski and the directors of five Czêstochowa schools, which in technical and trade schools teach specialisations useful in the heavy industry.

Also present were representatives of Czêstochowa University of Technology, with which Liberty Czêstochowa Sp. z o.o. signed a cooperation agreement a few weeks ago: Prof. Agata Dudek – Dean of the Faculty of Production Engineering and Materials Technology, Prof. Sebastian Mróz and Dr Katarzyna Pawlik.

Liberty Czestochowa was represented, among others, by the General Manager Krishnamoorthy Venkatasubramanian and Slawomir Margas and Katarzyna Balsam-Szelag from the HR Department. They presented plans for activities aimed at educating human resources and acquiring new employees from among graduates of technical schools, both technical secondary schools and vocational schools. An important role in this undertaking is to be played by the GFG Foundation, which already operates within the Liberty group in Romania and the Czech Republic, and is currently undergoing procedures to be launched also in Poland. The foundation will, among other things, focus on running joint projects with schools.

The headmasters of the schools were interested in the possibility of cooperation. They stressed that children and young people should be encouraged to choose professions connected with industry already at the level of primary schools. The way to achieve this is, among others, presenting the modern face of enterprises. An important and difficult task is also to convince parents, among whom the view persists that the best future is provided by general education schools.

“Secondary schools, technical universities and workplaces should cooperate, because they are links in the chain that will not work effectively on their own” said Agata Dudek.
