Vesuvius supports the next generation of industry leaders
As part of our commitment to supporting our industry into the future, Vesuvius looks for opportunities to develop the next generations of leaders in our sector and support training and education programmes.
In Belgium, Vesuvius is an industrial partner of the Polytechnic Faculty of Mons and supported the Mechatronic Award 2020/21.
During the graduation ceremony at Mons University, students received the Mechatronics Polytechnic Award, with a bursary funded by Vesuvius for the best Master’s degree final project.
In South America, we operate a range of programmes, including our Young Apprentice programme in Piedade which provides professional training in specific occupations in the industry, aimed at young people aged between 14 and 24 years old with minimum education.
In 2021, we also supported a career workshop project in public high schools, helping young people to understand more about our industry and the career opportunities it offers.
