In Ede Aeres Tech has the ideal facilities for implementing its own didactic ‘learning by doing’ concept. Aeres Tech offers a series of practical courses and training in specific areas, from hydraulics to transmission and from electronics to GPS. It is also the place for professionals and businesses to go for development projects, such as management skills, customer orientation and supporting skills.
The sector’s labour market is tight: there are still too few young people opting for technical careers. Large businesses need their own company training programmes under their own flag. The sector sees Aeres as the natural partner, with whom it can respond to these developments.
BUSINESS SCHOOLS (work-study in vocational education)
A relatively new trend is the need for work-study day-release programmes in the technical sectors.
Large dealer organizations see these as a solution to the problems of personnel shortage and insufficient connection with the company’s own business culture. It involves vocational training under a company’s own flag, whereby employees enter into work-study contracts. The training courses are given at all intermediate vocational levels. In consultation with the businesses, Aeres Tech prepares the curriculum for these courses and takes care of the lessons and training. Learning and working go hand-in-hand, in full accordance with Aeres Tech didactic concept of ‘learning by doing’.
