DM in skills must draw young people
The blue Denmark now bands together in the struggle to provide more skilled workers to the blue industry. It occurs when the subjects in the maritime industry are running for DM in Skills.
"The maritime industry is growing and need more skilled employees. We would especially like to show that if you take an education in the technical area, there are plenty of good jobs to pursue and more opportunities for further education in the maritime field. With a vocational training such as a ship fitter or an electrician, you can complete a medium-term higher education, for example as an engineer or production engineer," says Managing Director Jenny N. Braat, Danish Maritime.
DM in Skills was first held in 2011 and takes place in Aalborg on the January 26-28 this year.
DM in Skills is a competition where the best in the participating business educations struggle to reach EuroSkills and perhaps advance to WorldSkills. The competition can thus help both produce the various business opportunities in a positive light while giving the best students opportunities to test their skills in an international context.
In addition to the trade association Danish Maritime which is participating as a partner in the project Future Maritime Mechanics, the stand is also staffed by representatives from business campaign World Careers and MARCOD. Moreover, at the Blue Denmark stand, there are apprentices present from North Jutland maritime companies.
"We strongly encourage companies in the maritime industry to drop in at Aalborg and meet pupils who have begun their journey to becoming skilled workers," says Jenny N. Braat.
