The project is aimed at young people who
The training program consists of theoretical training (two days a week) and business practice (three days a week). The theoretical part is given in school, either in the Provinciaal Instituut voor Technische Onderwijs in Stabroek, or in the Technicum in Antwerp. This training is always on Monday and Tuesday. The practical training on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday consists of carrying out tasks and activities in a production unit in a two-shift system (early/late). For this practical training the SIRA student receives a fee.
The theoretical part is concluded at school by final examinations in June. During the months July and August the SIRA students are working in a fully continuous shift system in the company. Hereafter they get a definitive assessment to complete their training. In case of a positive evaluation of school and practical results the SIRA student receives an officially recognized certificate and has a real chance to start at Evonik Antwerpen with a fixed contract.The selection for the SIRA project starts from June. We advise you to apply in June and July.
