On 25 June 2019, 16 trainees from various sectors of the maritime economy founded the Apprentice Network of the Maritime Cluster Northern Germany (MCN). Membership in the network is open to all trainees from the North German federal states who have a connection to the maritime economy, and is free of charge.
One hallmark of the new network is already emerging: MCN apprentices are diverse! The represented occupational groups and training professions cover, amongst many others, ship mechanics, sail makers, boat builders, shipping merchants, insurance merchants, software developers and construction mechanics. The aim of the network is to offer trainees the opportunity to learn new things, to network, to take on responsibility, to experience appreciation and of course to have fun together.
The Apprentice Network is a working group of the Personnel & Qualifications specialist group and is supported by the Schleswig-Holstein office in cooperation with the other MCN offices. We look forward to your suggestions, topics and ideas for the further development of the network.
