About the traineeship

The Talent Development Program Technology entails you working as a (junior) engineer at a company in our network. Alongside this work, you will also follow training geared towards specialisation and professionalisation, ensuring you grow to become an expert engineer, a good colleague and someone with whom people enjoy working. 

Talent Development Program Technology

This work/learn-program is more than just a traineeship. You learn technical, soft and business skills. A certified coach will also assist you throughout the entire process. By combining goal-oriented skills training and real work experience, you will develop into an accomplished Engineer within two years. Hence the name Talent Development Program.

You get to choose from a wide array of companies in YER’s extensive network, all of whom share a deep-seated passion for engineering. Based on your profile and ambitions, we will jointly select the organisation that will be the best match for you.

There, you will then work as a (junior) engineer, initially under supervision, but over the course of your traineeship you will gradually be given a greater degree of independence whilst working on challenging technical projects and assignments.

You will be given a training budget of €6,000, or €3,000 a year. In consultation between you, YER and the company at which you will be working, you will use this budget to select specialist/in-depth training pathways, all geared towards turning you into an expert over the two-year programme. 

Depending on your profile and selected role, you will take training on soft skills and business skills, ensuring you develop to become an all-round professional with whom your colleagues enjoy working:

  • Effective communication
  • Time management
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Positioning in a new organisation
  • Consulting skills
  • Effective influencing.

Through YER you are also able to follow in excess of 80 online training courses/sessions from New Heroes: the best way to work on your competencies whenever and wherever you like. Select training on personal effectiveness, energy & passion, team development & leadership, and more, at your leisure. 

Personal coaching sessions will complete your learning process. You will work on your learning goals in targeted fashion in individual sessions with a NOBCO coach, using a personal development plan as a guideline.

Group peer supervision sessions will enable you to hear about the challenges your fellow trainees have faced and the lessons they have learned.
