Lufthansa Technik will be home to 591 trainees on their way to professions in technical aircraft services or aircraft logistics. One highlight of the current training year is the success of the company’s measures to increase the number of trainees with lower-level secondary school qualifications. And as is now traditional, several deaf trainees are among those “learning the ropes” as tool mechanics. The proportion of women among the trainees has risen from eleven per cent to 15 per cent.
72 trainees in Hamburg
72 of the new trainees are beginning programmes in Hamburg at the group’s global headquarters. Traditionally, most of the slots here go to young people who will become aircraft mechanics with specialties in maintenance (12), engines (12), production engineering (12) and avionic (7). Moreover, this year twelve people will begin their training as tool mechanics, seven as specialists in inventory administration (Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services – LTLS), and two as surface coating technicians (electroplater). They are joined by the following degree-based professions: two practice-oriented aircraft engineers (Master of Engineering), two practice-oriented electrical engineers (Master of Engineering), two mechanical engineers (Master of Engineering) and two students of mechatronics. The degree coursework for these programs takes place at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences.
Prep programme in Hamburg
Seven young people have taken advantage of a vocational training preparation program to qualify for training at Lufthansa Technik. This project is jointly sponsored by the city of Hamburg and Lufthansa Technical Training, and focuses on the targeted preparation for training of young people with difficult educational backgrounds.
