Railway Infrastructure Administration Student Cup once again this year in Brno
The premises of the Secondary School of Informatics and Communications in Brno-Komín became once again a setting for this year’s this year Student Cup. This all-day event organized by the Railway Infrastructure Administration (SŽDC) is designed for pupils in the 7-th – 9th class of primary schools who could someday become SŽDC’s employees in a technical profession.
Since Wednesday 9 September beginning at 8.30 AM, various sporting disciplines and knowledge tests will be prepared in the school’s premises at Čichnová Street. Representatives of SŽDC will also present pupils with selected railway professions.
The whole project is a breakthrough not only from the point of view of SŽDC as such but also in the field of Czech education and HR management. ”It is not yet quite common for state institutions of such a size and importance to present students with technical fields of study and to offer them cooperation in an active way. We want to present our organisation to young people as a dynamic company where they can fully fulfil and develop themselves”, says Mr. Pavel Surý, Director General of the Railway Infrastructure Administration about this unique event’s intent.
SŽDC Student Cup took place for the first time in 2013 in Prague. Last year the event was organised in Brno where it attracted several hundred of pupils from the whole South Moravia capital. The third venue will be the city of Hradec Králové in a week, on Wednesday 16 September.
