LOWA is not only an employer in the region, but also a training operation. Currently, market-specific business persons, speciality personnel for warehouse logistics, and shoe-making specialists are being trained. A dual study in the area of sports management has also been offered at LOWA since last year. All total, nine trainees or students are currently getting an education at LOWA. In a tough competitive market with an increasing shortage of speciality personnel, this is a number the company is quite proud of. Add to that, in particular, that shoemakers, who need special training, are these days a rarity among entry-level workers. The goal with this is indeed to have apprentices take over jobs that open up by the company’s own young workers. To succeed at that and to hang on to apprentices, there is a lot of professional continuing education available after completion of training. For example, continuing education to become a shoe technician, shoe modelmaker, or industry master craftsperson with a shoemaking speciality.
LOWA provides occupational training in the following areas: Industrial management, Warehouse logistics specialist and Shoemaker.
