Valmieras stikla šķiedra is currently taking part in a Latvia-wide campaign called ‘Inspire learning!’, organised as part of The Mission Possible educational programme. From 23 to 26 November, some of the best-known professionals in their fields will be conducting lessons at a number of Latvian schools. One of these visiting professionals is Mrs Doloresa Volkopa, member of the Board and Chief Human Resources Officer at Valmieras stikla šķiedra, who visited 16-year-old students at Mazsalaca Secondary School today.
Within the framework of a regular lesson, the students learned about the company’s business profile and performance indicators, as well as the prominence of engineering sciences in today’s labour market, thereby inspiring their interest in technical professions and a desire to learn more about these professions.
The pupils appreciate that such lessons not only inspire them and motivate them to concentrate on their studies with a renewed vigour, but they also help them understand what people from various professions are really doing and how they use the knowledge and skills that they acquired at educational institutions on a daily basis.
