Budapest – With the participation of the Bosch Group in Hungary, the successful Let’s Teach for Hungary program’s corporate mentor branch is being relaunched, which helps students living in small settlements to successfully complete their studies and to find a job in the future. The post-pandemic re-launch of the program’s corporate mentor branch, which started in 2019, was announced at Bosch's Budapest site by the organizers of the program. The press event was also attended by Dr. László György, Minister of State for Economic Strategy and Regulation of the Ministry of Innovation and Technology, founder of the program.

Bosch supports the program as a corporate mentor, which has been joined by more than 1,600 young people, 58 primary schools and 380 mentors since its inception. “For the Bosch Group, knowledge is of paramount importance, which is not only the basis of our centuries-old success story, but also the key to our continuous development. Therefore, it is our duty and mission to mentor young people, as they will be the engineers, developers, or scientists of the future. With our program, we want to give students an equal chance to learn,” said István Szászi, Representative of the Bosch Group in Hungary and the Adriatic region.

For the first time, Bosch hosts 30 primary school students in its center in Budapest, but the long-term goal is to have children visit all the Hungarian locations of the company group. During the first corporate mentoring program, Bosch employees introduce young people to the daily life of the development center through a variety of interactive programs. Students can get to know the individual jobs, and learn what competencies are required to perform the given job. In the meantime, they can solve playful tasks, look at the world of self-driving cars, test eBikes developed by the company and get to know HR tasks.

Besides the Let’s Teach for Hungary program, Bosch Group Hungary has been participating in programs supporting the training of the experts of the future for a long time. Several of Bosch’s plants have been having strategic partnerships with Hungarian universities for years, with more than 10 higher education institutions in total.

The Ministry of Innovation and Technology, the Ministry of Human Capacities (EMMI), the Klebelsberg Center (KK) and the National Conference of Student Self-Governments (HÖOK) are all about mutual learning, supporting each other and strengthening Hungarian communities. Its target group is primary school students living in small settlements. The task of the mentors participating in the program is to show the students the excitement and opportunities of the world beyond their settlements – the zoo, the museum, the secondary schools, the businesses, to see how many professions and how many futures they can choose from. To sum up in one sentence, help them to be able to make the most of themselves – whether it be obtaining a profession, graduation, further education, sports, arts, and at the end, settling at the job market.

The Let’s Teach for Hungary program is based on 2 main pillars – the university, and corporate mentoring programs. So far, 30 companies have joined the program, who have undertaken to open their offices and factories to small schoolchildren, giving them an insight into the work that is going on there, organizers are however looking for further companies to join.
