UrBC, Yekaterinburg, February 18, 2016. Thirteen students of Karpinsk Machine-Building School who are currently training to be welders were taken on as interns to Volchansky Mechanical Plant (a member enterprise of Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation).

According to the company press service, the students had a chance to work at a number of different departments, and four of them practiced in the gas-cylinder production department. Every student was assigned a mentor from among the plant’s most experienced workers.

For four months, the students had to put their theoretical expertise to practice, improve their on-the-job skills, and learn to work in a team. They were all fully involved in the production process and also got to work on their own, under the mentors’ supervision. One of the students was particularly successful, so the workers in his department decided to ask that he should be given a higher qualification grade at the end of his internship than the one he initially applied for.

Volchansky Mechanical Plant and Karpinsk Machine-Building School have been partners since 2010, when first students started coming to the plant to get some practice as interns.
