Our cooperation with Eötvös Loránd Technical Vocational High School dates back more than 25 years, although since the operation of the company’s predecessor in the city in 1954 and the establishment of Kapos Atlas Gépgyár Kft in 1994, it has continuously and was and is considered a training place.
The co – operation starts with raising the awareness of students in primary education, introducing professions, plant visits and the continuous participation of our professionals in career choice and career orientation events. As a practical training place, we consider it a priority to work closely with the training, the training institution and the practical training place and to coordinate the trainings.
Every year, our students take part in academic and professional competitions and achieve placements, for which we provide them with all the help they need, both educationally and humanly and professionally.
Last year 2, this year 3 of our main students took part in a professional competition.
In recent years, the number of our industrial students has steadily increased, as we also try to contribute to the training of specialists and the strengthening of economic life.
We constantly monitor our students, and their moral and financial support is outstanding.
The cooperation is very diverse. We also provide machines and equipment from our factory for their school studies, as well as raw materials suitable for practical education from year to year free of charge for the institution. We are announcing a special study scholarship for participants in high school and technical education, the aim of which is not only to encourage good academic results, but also to provide a secure job and livelihood after graduation. Nothing exemplifies the above cooperation better than the fact that we now employ a colleague as a mechanical engineer, also supporting the further education of the students graduating from the institution. Dozens of our current colleagues have completed professional or technical training and have been working with us for years, decades, while our management team also includes colleagues here who point to a higher level of cooperation in addition to professional cooperation and commitment.
The decades-long cooperation has prompted our company to undertake the complete renovation of one of the halls of Eötvös Loránd Technical Vocational High School, one of the most outstanding institutions in the field of industrial training in Kaposvár. In the present case, this undertaking not only meant a financial contribution from our company, but also that our colleagues carried out a significant part of the work themselves without sparing time and effort. During the renovation, new ceilings and lighting fixtures, radiators, water blocks were installed, the entire electronic network was replaced, and the bottom of the room was given a modern but durable resin floor covering. Of course, the aesthetic renovation could not be left out either. The furnished room provides a bright, tidy, clean environment for students. And to keep up with the demands of the age and to support development, the room has been given a new teacher’s desk with network connectors to make it easier to use the digital tablet.
