An important aspect is allowing young people in training to make mistakes so that they can learn from them. Our apprentices also have the opportunity to complete assignments abroad and take courses outside of the company, taking the learning experience one step further.

Christoph Haidic, Head of KNAPP Apprentice Training in Hart bei Graz, smiles at the camera

We place a great deal of importance on diligence and ambition. Anyone who shows the necessary commitment will go far with an apprenticeship from KNAPP. This is why we encourage apprenticeships in combination with the Matura higher education entrance qualification: to give our apprentices as many opportunities as possible once their training is complete. Apprentice training has to be attractive and varied. I am pleased that we will be adding to our current programs in the next years, giving even more young people the chance to take on an apprenticeship here at KNAPP.
