CASE STUDY. IT TRAININGS IN OPOLE

A good software developer is an asset on the job market of today. And even

more so a good software developer with the knowledge of foreign languages.

Atos IT Services, a company who recently opened its branch in Opole, decided

to launch trainings intended for the best students of Opole schools and universities

rather than seeking employees through recruitment programmes.

The idea of employing students is not new, but Opole wants it to be slightly

different. At the end of the past year, selected students of Opole University

of Technology and Opole University were invited to the meeting with representatives

of the training company - Training Centre Club. As a result, appointed

specialists checked the students’ soft skills and the interpersonal competence,

and conducted software development and German language competence tests.

All this to select the best candidates based on the specific criteria set by Atos IT

Services. The training was co-financed from the National Training Fund.

It is result of cooperation between the City of Opole, Labor office in Opole,

University and the Technical University of Opole, TCC and Atos.
