Vocational training programme

In collaboration with the Vocational School in Murowana Goślina and Swarzędz, Solaris has been implementing a programme of Practical Vocational Training via sponsored classes since 2007. The goal of the project is to give young people a career headstart as best as possible, while at the same time supporting local education and investing in the local labour market. The students attend the sponsored class for three years, trained by skilled engineers and specialists, and thus gain a general and theoretical knowledge as well as practical skills as mechatronics technicians. Solaris employs all trainees of the programme based on their status as underage workers. The know-how and skills gained by the students by means of the sponsored vocational training programme give the graduates a better headstart on the regular job market. Since 2014 the students of the sponsored classes have been pursuing a curriculum preparing them to the vocational exam held by the Polish-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK Polska).

  • Filip

    I am happy to already be working in the line of work that I am training to do. Company employees are always ready to help out and give us valuable instructions. Once I complete my course I feel I will be well-prepared to start working. Thanks to my work experience in the company my motivation and chances of finding an interesting job are much better.
  • Marcin

    I heard about the possibility of joining the sponsored class from my class friends. They said it was OK. I had considered going to a regular high school. However, now I am happy that I chose the vocational school, because I got a job right after graduating from that school.

How we implement the programme:

  • The regular vocational school

    curriculum takes up two days per week in the Vocational School in Murowana Goślina.

  • Vocational training

    • theoretical - financed by the county authorities in Poznań, with lessons being held one day a week in the School Complex No. 1 in Swarzędz.
    • practical - implemented in Solaris Bus & Coach S.A. facilities on two days per week.

Dual study course

As of July 2014 Solaris has been co-operating with the Technical University of Poznań (Politechnika Poznańska) and industrial firms of the Wielkopolskie region to carry out a new education programme involving a dual study course. The course is run by the Machine Construction and Management Department of the Mechanics and Machine Construction faculty. A new specialisation - Industrial Engineering - was created for purpose of the programme. Apart from lectures and seminars held at the technical university, the study curriculum includes also 6-month summer internships in Solaris and paid a one-day-per-week internship throughout the whole study course.
“The working time per week is adjusted to the study schedule and is gradually being extended from one to three days per week over the last term of the study course.”

At the moment 17 students are completing the dual degree course in our company

  • Bartek

    The extensive experience gathered throughout my study course gives me confidence to start work.Thanks to the internships and lesson organised by Solaris I gained additional know-how and skills which I would not have been able to tap into, had I not attended the dual study course. My biggest thanks go out to the company employees who are happy to help out and who are not afraid of allocating a responsible task during the internship. I am quite sure that there is no better way to start a professional career in the industry!”
  • Mikolaj

    Thanks to the dual study course I had the opportunity to get to know all aspects of work as a design engineer and also the rules of cooperation in Solaris. Co-workers from the office and employees of the production division were always helpful, ready to advise me, as well as share their experience and knowledge with me. At the same time they treated us as equals. Thanks to the experience and knowledge gathered in the firm, I had no problem whatsoever handling my project tasks at the university. Right after graduation I was offered a post as a junior design engineer in the Office of Research and Development of Solaris - the same in which I had my internship before - which I gladly accepted.

How does it work?

  • 01

    Recruitment takes place at the end of the second term of the study course.

    Once students qualify to join the programme, they get to know production processes and work rules in design departments and production-supporting departments over a period of two months during the summer holidays.
