Poland: A broad-based programme
In Poland, we support a programme called ‘ZainSTALuj się’ (literally, ‘Install’), which works with schoolchildren and technology students to help them develop skills that would be useful in the workplace. The steel industry is used as the example, and the hope is that students will come away with an appreciation of the industry as a potential employer. We ran workshops for around 430 young people in 2014, as well as providing careers advice for around 200, exam support for over 80, short-term internships for 33 students, and site visits for 175. In addition, 170 students took part in the ArcelorMittal Game, a competition designed to stimulate students to think logically and strategically as a team. The best group won an educational trip to the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw.
