Help helping ourselves

There is a scarcity of young people who want to take vocational training. Structural and warehouse apprentices in particular are hard to find. However, the Fehmarn project badly needs them. Not least because the client, Femern A/S, has committed to training a total of 500 apprentices during construction.

FLC is reaching out to the FGU schools (Preparatory Basic Education) in order to expand the recruitment base for the pressured programmes. It is positive for both FGU, for the vocational schools, for the contractor and not least for the many young people who are now on the path towards education and the labour market by detours. We can do it.
