Power point:Company Profile
Japanese language education “Craftsman Language School”
■Our foreign employees are very hardworking, and have an outstanding passion for technical acquisition. One of the craftsmen has no problem with Japanese at a daily conversation level but, even though he passed the practical skill test of 1st Class Certified Painting Skill, it was really hard for him to pass the written test, which included Japanese Kanji. So, what we do for him is provide private Japanese examination preparation lessons.
Housing support “Craftsman Diversity Dormitory”
We are planning to build “craftsman development diversity · dormitory” near the company. This dormitory plays a role of in their life support and improve the living standard for technical intern trainees from abroad, craftsmen who can come from a distant place in Japan, and newcomers who are going on a new life as craftsmen.
As a feature, you can use the facility which carries out craftsman development classes at any time. This facility, if you are a craftsman of Takenobe Corporation, you can practice at any time and use it as a place to acquire skills faster. For individuals living, we have private rooms with privacy. Bed, TV, refrigerator, safety box, and air conditioning will be installed.
