Education

Education

  • To promote the choice of engineering and technical careers we organize meetings for senior students with managers and employees of clay extraction enterprises as well as excursions to production sites. VESCO provides an opportunity for children to get a deeper understanding of workflow of a large company and learn about the possibilities of self-realization near their homes.
  • To increase the prestige of the professions represented at the clay-mining enterprises by assessing the importance of the parental professions in accordance with the project “To the miners’ work” we organize excursions for the children of employees to the production sites in order to promote the choice of professions represented at the mining enterprises through the understanding of parents’ professions importance. In this way VESCO contributes to the career guidance for children and forms personnel reserve for the future.
