Apprenticeships at Schöfer

Since 1992 Schöfer apprentices have been trained in the fields of metal- and plastics technology – and new as of 2023, also in the area of mechatronics.
With considerable dedication and professional competence, young people are being educated in an exciting field. We not only pay close attention to a high level of technical know-how in our apprentice education, but also on personal development. Since 2022, we have been a cooperation partner of the Upper Austrian Red Cross and in this way have make it possible for our young employees to participate in several modules with a focus on value transfer, first aid and personal development.
In regular talk sessions with our apprentices, our young colleagues can present all of their topics, ideas and questions and thereby become an important and valued member of our company.

Also the possibility to get a feel for other departments not-directly related to the home department of the apprentice is part of the overall education. This is because we feel that it is important for young people to acquire an understanding of the overall context of a company and to become acquainted with other fields.
Thanks to the size of the company, it is indeed possible to individually address the concerns of an apprentice and also to immediately respond to problem situations.
It is the personal touch that makes the training period at Schöfer something special.

INEO – exemplary teaching program

I N E O is an award granted by the WKO Oberösterreich (Upper Austrian Chamber of Commerce) for exemplary engagement in the education of an apprentice.

This is what our apprentices say


“I find it good that we not only make trial pieces, but real components for the production. Our work is therefore always a part of actual operations.”


“When something goes wrong, it’s not a tragedy. We talk about it, what the problem was, and then we try again. We learn from mistakes.”


“As a girl here, I’m still an exception. This is unfortunate because the job here is versatile and interesting, and I really like to work in a team.”


“I appreciate it that I can participate in further education courses that I otherwise couldn’t attend.”
