The 6th edition of “Young People in Łódź” with Ericpol
9 October 2013
The 6th edition of “Młodzi w Łodzi” (“Young People in Łódź”), a programme organized by the City of Łódź Office, has started. As every year, Ericpol is going to participate in the programme by offering students free English courses.
“Młodzi w Łodzi” is an initiative that is based on the cooperation between the City Office and Łódź employers. Its objective is to support young people in developing their professional careers. As part of the programme, the employers support the best students with scholarships, accommodation in students’ houses or paid internships, as well as various courses and training sessions.
Ericpol has been supporting the programme since its very beginning – first by granting scholarships to outstanding students of technical faculties and then, for the last three years, by organizing free English courses. As a result, thanks to Ericpol’s actions, over 150 people have been awarded scholarships or places on training sessions, traineeships or language courses.
“We have just started enrolment for the fourth edition of the English courses for students of technical faculties. We plan to create at least one group of about fifteen people, who will be improving their linguistic competences during the whole academic year, free of charge. We hope that they will later use their newly-acquired skills while working for Ericpol,” says Olga Błaszczyk, staff management senior specialist.
In the last few years, Ericpol specialists have conducted a number of soft skills and technical training sessions. In addition, the company twice took part in the “Praktykuj w Łodzi” (“Traineeships in Łódź”) project. What is more, as part of the “Poznaj łódzkich pracodawców” (“Get to Know Łódź Employers”) project, 40 people visited the head office of Ericpol during the Open Day.
All details concerning the “Młodzi w Łodzi” program are available on the website www.mlodziwlodzi.pl. The enrolment for language courses funded by Ericpol will be closed on the 25th of October.
