Work experience programme
ALO has, during a long time, an educational partnership with the local schools, helping students gaining job experience while in school or pursuing a field of interest to see whether it is a good fit for them.
Many positive aspects of school-business cooperation have been the outcome both for ALO and the students. Meet the students who practiced at ALO in 2022.
“Having my LIA (Learning In Work) at ALO is both interesting and educational. I get to put my current knowledge in CAD design to work, while also acquiring a lot of new knowledge.” says Emil, who is studying in the second year of the university of applied sciences – 3D-CAD designer/innovator.
Emil continues “I also learn how to apply this knowledge in the professional role in the best way. I feel that I have developed a lot here at ALO, and hope to be able to contribute to the industry in the best possible way in the future. I am very grateful that ALO accepted my application and look forward to my continued time here.”
“We are proud to give Emil the opportunity to develop his skills outside the classroom. Thank you Emil for your time here and for great input and ideas.” says Mattias Svensson, Engineer Manager.

“I think ALO is an exciting company with many different work tasks. The assembly jobs have been fun. Everyone is nice and made me feel welcome.”
This is how William Lithén sums up a period of job experience and summer job at ALO, and we agree – technology is exciting!
Great job and thanks for your time here, William!

We would like to say a big thank you to Isabell who has completed one week of APL (Workplace Learning) with us. Our electricians Patrik and Heikki have had the privilege of supervising Isabell, who attends the Electricity and Energy Program at Mora high school.

“I’ve learned a phenomenal amount in these weeks. Everything from reading electrical diagrams to building well-made electrical cabinets. I hope to work with things like this in the future!” says Joel Vinter after 3 weeks of workplace learning at ALO. Joel attends the Electricity and Energy Program, second year at Mora high school.
Joel´s talented supervisors Patrik and Heikki comment:” We are grateful for a good collaboration with Mora high school, and we appreciate the work of the talented young people. It feels good to contribute to good and relevant education.” Good job Joel and thank you for your time!
We would like to say a big thank you to Marco Kristoffersson who has completed his APL (Workplace learning) with us. Together with our CNC-operators, Marco has had the chance to try the different CNC machining processes, he has a keen eye for detail and mechanical aptitude. Great job Marco!

Why is work experience programme important to ALO
ALO’s essential functions and competences are, among other things, electrical and mechanical assembler, CNC operators, designers, programmers, planning, purchasing, controller, sales, technical customer support.
HR, logistics, social media/websites, product specifications/sales materials etc are other examples of “must-have” functions and support which requires the right skills.
By inviting our young people into our everyday life, an interest can be awakened and, through a good and relevant education, perhaps in the end lead back “home” to us.
