The first batch of Volkswagen India Mechatronics Apprenticeship Programme, selected by Volkswagen Academy for the programme in 2011, has successfully cleared the course. Volkswagen India hosted the 15 apprentices at a Certificate-giving ceremony that was held at the Pune Plant. The apprentices have now been absorbed by Volkswagen India Private Limited and have been assigned to key departments across various functions within the plant. Additionally, two apprentices who excelled in the programme have been accorded special recognition for their merit.
Rajiv Mishra from Unnao, Uttar Pradesh and Anshuman Srivastava from Bahraich, Uttar Pradesh performed exceptionally well throughout the course and have been accorded special recognition by Volkswagen India. Rajiv Mishra’s achievement has earned him a year long stint, starting December 2014, at Volkswagen Salzgitter Engine Plant in Germany under Volkswagen Wanderjahre Programme.
Anshuman Srivastava on the other hand, has been nominated for one of the highest recognitions from Volkswagen Academy through a certificate awarded directly by none other than Volkswagen CEO, Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn. Anshuman Srivastava will be receiving his certificate in Wolfsburg in October.
Speaking about the Mechatronics Apprenticeship Programme conducted by Volkswagen Academy, Peter Raussendorf said, “India is fast moving towards becoming one of the largest automobile markets by 2020. We, as Volkswagen India, are conscientious about the fact that the industry’s demand for talented professionals in the auto manufacturing sphere will continue to grow. Through our dual apprenticeship programme, we are cultivating and nurturing talent, which is absolutely necessary to drive the future of our production facility.”
Vijayan KT, Head of Volkswagen Academy at Pune Plant, added, “It only feels like yesterday that we selected the top apprentices from across the country for our Mechatronics Apprenticeship Programme and today they are passing out after completing their three years with us. Through these years, the apprentices have really worked their way up with maximum dedication and perseverance. With the future-oriented combination of theory and practical knowledge that has been imparted to them, we have created skilled work force for the growing and changing needs of an ever-evolving tomorrow.”
