Given the need to secure a pipeline of young personnel, JSW’s Management Board is increasingly open to cooperating with local urban and municipal governments in areas where the Company operates as regards education in mining professions at schools overseen by these local governments. This cooperation is intended to raise the quality of education for young personnel, including through facilitating internships and supporting various types of educational projects.
In 2018, JSW executed two additional agreements (following four agreements in 2017) with schools overseen by the Municipality of Pawłowice and the Rybnicki Poviat – an agreement concerning cooperation between the Municipality and JSW and between the Poviat and JSW regarding practical vocational education in the form of hands-on classes and vocational internships for students as well as employment guarantees at JSW for graduates in the following majors: Underground Mining Technician and Electricity Technician, Miner.
Other JSW Group companies are taking similar measures. As part of cooperation with local government units overseeing schools teaching mining professions, JSW’s Management Board introduced a scholarship program. The program’s main objective is to encourage young people to study mining-related majors and in the future work at JSW’s mines.
