MINT is an abbreviation that stands for the four science-oriented subjects: Mathematics, Information technology, Natural science and Technology. These four areas play a big role for CLAAS.

Our commitment

The Initiative MINT was launched by German businesses in order to make school pupils aware of technical and science-oriented careers. The aim is to expand education in MINT subjects and to improve its quality. To make this possible, numerous projects have been launched. As we are very interested in school pupils who are enthusiastic about technology and as we want to support them, we are supporting and participating in some of these projects.


Giving insights

Apprenticeship embassadors

In collaboration with the Industrie- und Handelskammer Ostwestfalen zu Bielefeld (Chamber of Industry and Commerce), we constantly train technical apprenticeship representatives. With this project, we want to strengthen the interest of the pupils on the technical apprenticeships. Our embassadors aim: Providing insights into their apprenticeships.


CLAAS is partner of the national pact for women in MINT jobs

"Join us at MINT."

We have obligated ourselves to support the national pact for women in inspiring girls and young women for MINT areas in our company. We want to win girls for the dual study program or the technical apprenticeship, to support female students from MINT courses during their studies (e.g. through internships and bachelor thesis) and to inspire them for a career entry at CLAAS later on.


Technology for:

"Starke Typen"

The "Starke Typen" ("great guys") campaign aims to positively influence the sector image for trade, service and industry, and to actively recruit new talent in this sector.

It is specifically related to Mechanic for agricultural and construction machinery which is a recognised occupation requiring formal training.


Career campaign for engineers in the East Westphalia-Lippe region

BINGO

The BINGO career campaign for engineers in East Westphalia-Lippe makes an effort for the provision of qualified and experience-oriented career information for young school pupils. For the last ten years, we have been regularly leading the BINGO project in collaboration with the Gymnasium Harsewinkel.


Future careers shaped by girls, women and companies

MINTrelation

The MINTrelation project aims to increase the number of women being recruited in technical careers. Using targeted measures, a link is established between female specialists from the metal and electronics industry and talented schoolgirls.
