Youths bounce back in industry initiative
The Volvo Step is a one-year apprenticeship programme designed specifically to train unemployed youth in industrial production.
Represents an investment of SEK450 million over a three-year period, the initiative, taken by the Volvo Group, will provide a total of 1,200 young people in Sweden with an opportunity of a paid apprenticeship and a future in the manufacturing sector.
The first round started in November 2012 where almost 4 000 applied to the 400 places. In this film you meet some of the participants, sharing their thoughts about the Volvo Step.
The one-year training course includes both theoretical and practical elements taken alternately. Trainees who complete the course successfully will receive a certificate showing that they are qualified to work in industrial production.
