NOTE initiates upper secondary school course in electronics
NOTE Torsby is developing a course of study in electronics in conjunction with the local Upper Secondary School in Torsby. This unique course is a pilot project. However, in the long run, it is intended that the course would be offered on a permanent basis to students throughout Sweden.
The pilot project involves 24 students and comprises around 27,000 study hours. EU funding of SEK 1,250,000 has been granted for the project. “This is an important step in our efforts to develop a profitable manufacturing industry in Sweden,” says Erik Stenfors, CEO of NOTE. “The course will become a prerequisite for those phases in the development chain on which we are focusing our efforts in Sweden.” “The project is very important to NOTE Torsby,” says Gerd Levin Nygren, MD for NOTE Torsby. “We have been investing in developing technical competence for many years through our Centre of Excellence. This project will help in assuring the right competence in the long term.” “We are naturally proud to have this pilot course located in Torsby, and we believe that, through this cooperation between the school and industry, we can create an industrial training course that is modern and up to date. I also believe that closeness and cooperation with a growing industrial concern such as NOTE will be positive for our students and help to motivate them, perhaps even towards furthering their studies,” says Thomas Stjerndorff, Municipal Executive Manager in Torsby.
