Dacia continues its partnership with the Mioveni Technological High School (LTCMM) in order to support vocational education. Starting in 2014, students from two LTCMM classes specialized as tool and die makers during training stages that took place at the Mioveni industrial platform. This year, three auto parts suppliers that are active in the Romanian auto industry – Euro Auto Plastic Systems, Piroux Industrie and Delta Invest – are joining the national auto manufacturer.
On Wednesday, January 13, the companies signed a collaboration protocol with the Arges County School Inspectorate and the Mioveni Mayoralty, in order to help LTCMM students gain specializations that are sought on the labour market. Dacia will offer training for welders.
The event, which took place at the LCTMM and consisted of the signing of the documents, was attended by Dacia President and CEO and Group Renault Romania CEO Nicolas Maure, Head of the Arges County School Inspectorate Dumitru Tudosoiu, Mioveni Mayor Ion Georgescu, LTCMM Headmaster Ghiorghe Dinuta and representatives of the auto parts companies.
“We started the partnership with the Mioveni Technological High School in 2014, with the tool and die maker specialization. Now we support a second specialization, that of welder. We are trying, together with the high school and the local community, to adapt the school curriculum to labour market demands. The 48 graduates of these classes will be given priority at employment, depending on the company’s needs. We are happy that other companies have joined us starting this year, our suppliers, which have understood the initiative’s necessity for the entire industry,” stated Nicolas Maure, Dacia President and CEO and Renault Group Romania CEO (photo).
In the 2015-2018 school years, six other eleventh graders from LTCMM will enrol in training stages at the Dacia plants in Mioveni, and will also visit the industrial platform. Based on the internship contract, they will collect monthly stipends of RON 200, awarded on the basis of performance criteria. Moreover, Dacia will cover their transport and lunch costs and will provide them with protection gear in the production departments where they will undergo training.
