GERMAN VISIT: Andrea Heiligers and Jan Hendrik-Schmitz at Hameldon Community College

Modern language students at a Burnley school brushed up on their German when they interviewed two visiting German employees, currently working in Burnley.

The Year 11 students at Hameldon Community College were treated to a special visit from VEKA Germany employees Andrea Heiligers and Jan Hendrik-Schmitz, who are spending a month working at the Burnley headquarters of the international company on secondment from the Sendenhorst plant in Germany. The students interviewed Andrea and Jan in German and asked them questions regarding their lifestyle and work in Germany.
