Why companies use AQUA (qualification close to the workplace) to recruit and train future IT employees!


We believe that the Aspire Education’s AQUA was launched at exactly the right time.
Due to Covid-19 and the associated increase in unemployment, we at OMV would also like do our bit by giving some people the opportunity to regain a career foothold in these difficult times.
We see this opportunity as a win-win situation both for our company and for the future employees, and are looking forward to starting the first on-the-job training courses in October.

As Simon Sinek says “You don’t hire for skills, you hire for attitude. You can always teach skills.”
There is an especially aggressive war for talent on the job market, particularly in the IT sector. Models such as the AQUA workplace-based qualification are an excellent way
of attracting people who have a good work ethic to a company and to then train and develop them for specific requirements.

The IT Aqua Programme opened up a new field of applicants for our company, especially for our IT department, which we would not have found on the market ourselves and with which we were and are more than satisfied. Since mid-December 2022, we have been training a React Developer. The mix of working in the company and off-the-job training is a perfect combination and is very well received both in the department and in the company itself, as well as by the respective candidate. Thank you very much for this opportunity!
