Enterprise Day in PIU

On 17 April this year, pupils of general and technical high schools participated in a vocational training session in the Polish Insurance Association (PIU), within the framework of the “Enterprise Day” project.
During meetings and discussions with PIU representatives, the pupils had an opportunity to learn about the organisation of the insurance self-government and the scope of activities of particular departments and committees of the Association. The young people familiarized themselves with how the functioning of the insurance market, they learnt about its multi-layer nature and its impact on everyday life.
We are especially glad that one programme participant, who took part in the Association’s session second year in a row, decided to deepen her knowledge of the insurance sector. As you can see, such meetings and campaigns can be very fruitful. Young people who learn about the specificity of the industry and work find it easier to imagine themselves in this business.
The “Enterprise Day” was organised in Poland for the tenth time by the Youth Enterprise Foundation with the cooperation of the President of the Republic of Poland’s Office. Its purpose is to include entrepreneurs in educating young people, as well as to establish an innovative platform for providing young people with knowledge regarding the labour market.
