More than 900 young people have successfully completed their apprenticeship at FRÄNKISCHE in the last 50 years. In order to give pupils an insight into the world of work as early as possible, arouse their interest and successfully retain them in the region, the company regularly organizes various events in close cooperation with regional schools. For this commitment, FRÄNKISCHE has now been awarded the “This has potential!” prize by the SCHULEWIRTSCHAFT network and took first place in the “SCHULEWIRTSCHAFT companies/large companies” category.

Matthias Tusche, Head of Training, and Tamara Müller, Head of Apprenticeship at FRÄNKISCHE, accepted the award in Berlin. It was presented by State Secretary Michael Kellner. “The amount of digital information on educational and career opportunities for young people is constantly growing - but the best way for them to find out which path really suits them is in practice. That's why there needs to be greater cooperation between schools and businesses,” emphasized the jury.
