For schools and universities

KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. has been working closely with secondary schools and universities. The purpose of the activities is to develop competent human resources for the organisation. An example of long-term collaboration includes the Professional Adaptation Programme offered to graduates of B. Krupiński Vocational School Complex in Lubin educating young people in such vocations as mechanical technician, underground mining technician, electrical technician and electronic technician and to graduates of Jan Wyżykowski Vocational School Complex in Głogów where students are trained as smelting technicians, mining technicians, automation technicians and electronic technicians. The programme includes participation in internship programmes financed by the County Labour Offices in the Copper Basin region and in specialised courses preparing job candidates for work. The best participants of the programme are employed as operators in the mines. Under the first three editions of the program, 38 graduates were offered jobs in KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. Another 24 persons have qualified for the fourth edition of the programme which will take place in 2013. We are hoping for even more participants in the coming years, as the Company signed a Letter of Intent with the county authorities in Bolesławiec on the launch of an Professional Adaptation Programme for graduates of the Mechanics School Complex.

In collaboration with the Wrocław University of Economics, KGHM has been implementing a project called “Kuźnia Kadr IV” which encompasses a series of actions aimed at developing highly skilled staff for the regional economy, providing support to the students and growing the potential of the University by adjusting its educational offer to the needs of the labour market, enhancing cooperation with the employers and making education fully accessible to disabled persons. The project will be implemented from January 2011 to December 2015. As part of the project activities, experts from KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. take part in discussion panels and open lectures organised by the University. The Company also invites students and graduates to participate in paid internship programmes in the Head Office and different divisions of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. But the scope of the project is much bigger. One of the Company’s tasks was to develop key assumptions for the new master’s degree course ‘Project Manager’ to be offered by the Engineering and Economics Department.


Under the ongoing collaboration projects with universities and colleges, the Company organised 227 student internships and provided source materials for the writing of 201 master’s theses.
