More apprenticeships, more collaborative project work between maritime companies, and a better sense of what is waiting after graduating? This is just a few of many advantages that students from four educational institutions will get from the new Lindø Training Center.
September 20, 2016 the project FMH had arranged a networking event to Lindø Industrial Park in collaboration with SIMAC.
The purpose of the event was for the vocational and technical schools to meet the maritime industry and also to create a network between the schools and the industry.
The day started with a presentation by Susanne Willer, Head of Sales, from Lindø Industrial Park, who talked about the upheaval that Lindø Industrial Park has gone through since Lindø Shipyard closed. Today, Lindø Industripark is a maritime cluster with a lot of maritime actors who take lodgings with the Industrial Park and who collaborate with each other.
Next, a presentation by two representatives from Fayard, who talked about their work with the training apprentices and at the shipyard. Fayard is one of the largest repair yards in the North and is today situated at Lindø Industrial Park, where they employ a skilled and experienced workforce.
After lunch the participants got a guided tour by bus around the park and saw some of the many things that are going on at the Industrial Park. After the tour, a presentation was held by Jan Askholm from SIMAC, who talked about Lindø Training Center.
The event was held in the context of the project Fremtidens Maritime Håndværker (The Future Maritime Craftsman). The participants included teachers, management consultants and directors of education and training from the vocational schools; TEC, NEXT - Uddannelse København, Selandia, EsNord and KEA. Employees from EMUC, Danske Maritime, SIMAC and Regionens Praktikpladsenhed were among the participants.
Lindø Industrial Park has provided a building containing shipyard, facilities, offices and workshops. Further, students from Syddansk Erhvervsskole, Erhvervsakademiet Lillebælt, SIMAC and Syddansk Universitet are able to work closely together with the companies at Lindø and with each other.
If financials are secured Lindø Training Center will open spring 2017.
