Wednesday, 20 July, 2022
Three students from schools from the Copper Belt sponsored by the KGHM will travel to Silicon Valley in the United States for a week-long internship. The results of the “Kompetentny w świat” (“Competent people explore the world”) competition organized by the copper mining company have just been announced.
The following three teenagers from the Copper Belt will go for an internship to Silicon Valley, the world’s center for the most advanced technologies:
Krystian Ranosz from the B. Krupiński School Complex no. 1 in Lubin;
Konrad Jasiński from the B. Krupiński School Complex no. 1 in Lubin; and
Cezary Buczyński from the Jan Wyżykowski School Complex in Głogów.
The participants in the “Kompetentny w świat” competition prepared short self-presentation videos. Besides the “self-concepts” presented in the videos, the evaluation committee also took into account the students’ academic performance and their involvement during the apprenticeships carried out at various branches of the KGHM.
The KGHM develops and supports industry-specific education in the Copper Belt. The “Kompetentni w branży górniczo - hutniczej” (“Competent people in the mining and metallurgy sectors”) program covers 9 schools in the region. The copper industry leader offers practical vocational training and knowledge of the latest developments in the mining, smelting, and metallurgical industries. The jobs for which training is offered are on the list of the most needed vocations in Poland published by the Ministry of Education and Science.
Students from classes sponsored by the KGHM can count on the company’s support. The company offers scholarships, workshops, internships, and visits to KGHM branches, as well as access to teaching materials.
