to overview

From 22nd until 24th June 2022, the VCampus training event for trainees from the tool industry took place for the first time. VCampus was organised by the sharpening specialists VOLLMER, who, via the Sieglinde Vollmer Foundation, are dedicated to the development of young people. Approximately 100 trainees were on-site in Biberach and were able to gain new motivation and inspirations in practical workshops on industry-specific topics – and furthermore, to form extensive networks in a relaxed atmosphere. In parallel to this, the training personnel were able to participate in workshops and exchange opportunities on the topics of training, marketing for training or Learning 4.0.

Lack of skilled personnel, academisation, the war for talent – these are topics that concern the tool industry across the world and which must be tackled. It was against this backdrop that the Biberach-based sharpening specialist VOLLMER set up the VCampus training event, which took place for the first time from 22nd to 24th June, 2022. Via the Sieglinde Vollmer Foundation, VOLLMER champions the development of young people, particularly those interested and engaged in the so-called STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

The approx. 100 VCampus participants are internal and external trainees who are currently completing technical, industrial or commercial training in the tool industry. At VOLLMER, they received exclusive practical knowledge from the areas of technology and IT, right through to business studies and methods. The young talent was able to compile their own individual timetable from the diverse offering – to suit their own job, interests, experience and previous knowledge. In the evening, VOLLMER invited the participants to joint events for networking and exchanging ideas. Learning, connecting, experiencing – these three points are the three pillars of the concept of VCampus. Furthermore, 20 external and internal training managers visited the VCampus days in order to participate in separate workshops and to exchange ideas about day-to-day training. In total, 30 speakers shared their knowledge with the participants in over 60 workshops.

"With a view to learning, networking and experiencing, we use VCampus to focus on those who will shape the future of the tool industry," says Jürgen Hauger, CEO of the VOLLMER GROUP. "More than 100 years of experience that VOLLMER has collected in vocational training was poured into the training event. With regard to our Sieglinde Vollmer Foundation, we want to further strengthen our future and expect to hold VCampus again in two years."
