Nordzucker’s Azubi-Talk! wins the German “Bildungspreis der Deutschen Industrie- und Handelskammer (DIHK)”

Azubi-Talk!, an initiative organised by Nordzucker in cooperation with the “Netzwerk Schule trifft Wirtschaft”, has won the coveted German “Bildungspreis der Deutschen Industrie- und Handelskammer (DIHK)”.

From the factory directly into the classroom – and now award-winning: The Azubi-Talk!  format, an initiative by Nordzucker, wins the German Bildungspreis der Deutschen Industrie- und Handelskammer (DIHK).

On 13 May 2024, the Azubi-Talk received the Education Award for its outstanding performance and contribution to vocational training. Marco Will, Head of Human Resources Germany at Nordzucker, is delighted with the award: “Our Azubi-Talk! demonstrates the dedicated work of our team. This recognition from the DIHK honours us and confirms the importance of our initiative for the professional future of young people.”

A format with great success

Lars Wärmer, Head of Training at Nordzucker’s Klein Wanzleben site, launched the Azubi-Talk! into being in 2020. Here, trainees discuss and provide information on all topics relating to career guidance and training together with guests from business and politics. The trainees want to familiarise other young people with the career opportunities and prospects in the Börde region and make it easier for them to start their careers. The Azubi-Talk! is streamed live into the classroom, with pupils having the opportunity to ask questions directly via a chat.

Lars Wärmer on the success: “It is a great honour for our team to receive the DIHK’s education award. This award emphasises the value of our work and the importance of training for the development of young people. I am particularly pleased about this award as it underpins the central role of training for the future of our young people.”

The “Bildungspreis der Deutschen Industrie- und Handelskammer (DIHK)” is awarded to companies that have recognised the importance of vocational training for their own business success and for their employees.

The Minister of Education of Saxony-Anhalt, Eva Feußner, has taken over the patronage of the third season of Azubi-Talks! which started in March 2024.
