If 90 per cent of all a company’s trainees spend part of their training abroad, this can virtually be said to constitute standard practice. This is precisely the situation that prevails at Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH, a company based in the Allgäu region in Southern Germany. Trainees spend between three and eight weeks gathering experience at a firm abroad. The Managing Director of Liebherr-Verzahntechnik GmbH has given an interview to BWP to explain the associated expectations of this approach and to report on the benefits that are derived for the trainees and for the company as a whole.
