HeDu is a finalist for the IHK Education Award 2018



The HeDu training cooperation is one of the finalists of the “IHK Education Award 2018”, which will be awarded on January 29 at the Berlin Congress Center. The IHK Education Award emphasises the importance of vocational education and training for Germany as a business location and demonstrates the impressive educational achievements of the companies. Everyone is therefore thrilled to be part of the race for the coveted award in the “medium-sized companies” category.

“We are very proud of our long-standing and unique cooperation and are pleased that this concept finds recognition nationwide. In Berlin, of course, we hope to be the winner of the category”, Alexander Ebi, Training Manager at Hectronic.

The way in which the winners are chosen should be emphasised. The finalists present themselves in short films to a 400-member jury from the IHK honorary office. These films were produced in advance by the DIHK (Deutscher Industrie- und Handelskammertag) and kept under lock and key until the award ceremony. The audience jury then decides live via a TED procedure about the winner for each category, which will be selected and awarded immediately afterwards.

“The shooting of the short film was obviously fun “, Andreas Koliska, Training Manager at Dunkermotoren. “Since we don’t get to see the film before either, we’re very excited about the result.” There will be prize money of 6,000 euros per winner, which will be donated to a non-profit organisation or initiative in the field of education. Furthermore, the organisation benefits from the film reports produced, which can subsequently be used for their own purposes. In addition to the finalists and the jury, numerous guests from politics, business and the media are also expected. The program will be led by the famous TV presenter and comedian Oliver Welke.
