In Chalon-sur-Saône, France nine students from the second promotion of Verallia’s glass school were awarded their diploma, together with an employment contract.

Over two years, they followed a demanding training course to become experts in the hot end: the section of glass factories where molten material is transformed into bottles.

Founded in 2013, the Verallia glass school in France trains the future technical managers and supervisors of Verallia France’s seven glass plants.

The two-year course accelerates the transfer of knowledge for expert positions, to which employees gain access traditionally after ten years of internal training.
