On October 29th, Grupa Azoty Polyolefins S.A. concluded an agreement regarding cooperation in the field of education with the Poviat Starosty in Police.
The signed agreement defines the principles of cooperation between both institutions in the implementation of the tasks of the Education Center (whose managing body is the Police Poviat), consisting in raising and obtaining qualifications in professional areas, consistent with the needs of the Company.
The Education Center, CKZiU in Police was established in September 2018 as part of the Regional Operational Program of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship 2014-2020. Its aim is to increase the effectiveness of vocational education and adapt to the requirements of the regional labor market, increasing employability by adapting education systems and close cooperation with employers.
As a result of the cooperation initiated today, not only the employees of the Company will be able to use the Centre's offer, but also, as the Company, we will bring a business perspective important for the further development of the Center. As business representatives, we will signal the expectations and current trends in the labor market, in particular in industry and the economy, says Paweł Bakun, Vice President of the Management Board of Grupa Azoty Polyolefins S.A.
Involvement of employers in the vocational education proces by raising qualifications of the employees, is fundamental for the labor market and the competitiveness of the economy - says Andrzej Bednarek, Starosta Policki. I am glad that once again the Police Poviat by acquiring EU funds can create conditions for increasing the professional qualifications of residents, meeting the expectations of employers, including Grupa Azoty Polyolefins S.A. This is an important initiative, especially taking into account the investment carried out by our Partner. I am convinced that the concluded agreement will bring tangible results, thus bringing mutual benefits. For the employer, it is a chance to acquire qualified staff, and for the inhabitants of the Police Poviat or nearby Szczecin, it is a chance to raise their professional qualifications appropriate to the needs of the labor market.
