Technical challenges on the labour market: an innovative approach
The technical labour market in The Netherlands demands employees with high qualifications. Dutch technical companies are continuously in need of well-motivated and educated employees. Labour market studies and prognoses show that there will be insufficient employees for a prolonged time. Labour market data show high unemployment rates in some other parts of Europe. The Orange Technical Academy offers opportunities to two parties: on the one side young people who are willing to consider the start of an international career and on the other hand companies that are looking for new channels and new modes to meet prospective employees.
The Orange Technical Academy collaborates with a number of renowned schools in the EU to provide the candidates extra training if needed. Furthermore, The Orange Technical Academy has close ties with Dutch governmental organizations and with the governments of various EU countries.
The Orange Technical Academy provides programs with which well-motivated young people are able to gain an international working experience or even create a career in the BeNeLux.
The Orange Technical Academy
The Orange Technical Academy has been established after one of the founders was on vacation in the South of Europe. Living in the Netherlands, his frame of reference was that of a big shortage of well-educated employees. On his vacation address however, he ran into multiple talented and motivated people who were looking for a job that would suit their education.
He developed a company for front-office candidates and cooks to have an internship in The Netherlands. More European countries got connected to the network; schools wanted to collaborate and educational programs were developed. In 2020, the expertise gained in the hospitality sector was formalized in The Orange Academy, and following questions from Dutch technical companies, a company with a technical focus was established: The Orange Technical Academy.
