Additional qualification “Digital Competences” for our trainees

Automation, digitalization and networking via Internet will be important across all industries in the future. The “Bildungswerk der Hessischen Wirtschaft e. V.” (a non-profit educational organisation of the Association of Hessian Employers’ Associations) has therefore developed an additional qualification in which our trainees from the third year of training could successfully participate. Basic digital and interdisciplinary skills were taught in order to promote the professional ability to act in the digitalised working world. Our trainees enjoyed this further training very much and can highly recommend this additional qualification.

PROJECT GROUP together with local secondary school

A total of nine pupils from the Dautphetal secondary school successfully took part in twelve consecutive appointments at the Schul AG at Heck + Becker from 27.08.2018 to 28.01.19 in order to get to know the profession of tool maker and to learn more about the company.

During the six-month period, the students were able to gain a first impression of the basic skills of a tool maker and also test the skills they had learned at the Heck + Becker Academy. For this purpose, the students produced a bottle opener and the game “Mensch ärgere dich nicht” (“Ludo”).

The company Heck + Becker would like to thank all participants as well as the “Mittelpunktschule Dautphetal” and is looking forward to an extended cooperation in the future!

Teambuilding event in the climbing forest Marburg

On September 28, 2018, the trainees of all apprenticeship years set off together for the team-building event in the Marburg climbing forest under the direction of training manager Marco Pfeifer. 15 trainees experienced many different team tasks throughout the day in order to take with them new ideas for everyday life and to strengthen the “sense of unity”. In a playful way, different stations tried to increase the ability to cooperate and communicate, to optimize the efficiency in the team and to strengthen the overall trust. After a refreshment in the adjacent “Dammühle” restaurant, all participants were able to try out all the stations in the climbing forest before heading home to Dautphe.

Heck und Becker welcomes new trainees

We are pleased to welcome new trainees to our company again this year. With the help of Heck + Becker, seven young colleagues will be completing their training as tool makers in the next few years. In addition to learning the basic skills of toolmakers, the training plan also includes getting to know and working in the individual departments. In addition, we also try to impart further training content within the framework of the Heck + Becker Academy. We wish them a good, interesting and successful training period at Heck + Becker GmbH & Co. KG.
