The Bad Wimpfen site collaborates with schools to foster initiatives in the fields of science
It is a priority for Solvay in Bad Wimpfen to support young people and to enable them to start a career. The site has maintained sponsorships and co-operations with schools in the region for many years:
- Hohenstaufen-Gymnasium, Bad Wimpfen, Collaboration since 2003
- Otto-Klenert-Schule, Bad Friedrichshall, Education Partnership since 2013
- Hermann-Greiner-Realschule, Neckarsulm, Education Partnership since 2015
- Ludwig-Frohnhäuser-Schule, Bad Wimpfen
Solvay offers students internships, classroom visits, and plant tours, sponsors school and laboratory projects, and supports schools with learning materials and instruments for chemistry lessons. In addition, people from the site regularly present the company at trainee fairs and facilitate career information days in schools. The aim is to get young people excited about chemistry and introduce them to scientific and technical careers at an early age, support them in their choice of career and prepare them for vocational training. Solvay’s strategy for apprenticeship in Bad Wimpfen is according to demand, and the chances of being taken on are correspondingly high.
