SCA participates every year in the technical internship “Tekniksprånget" (The Technology Leap). SCA has been one of the participating companies since the start 2012.

The internship is aimed at young people who are between secondary school and further studies at college or university. This year's round of The Technology Leap started in September and will continue until December.

During their first weeks they were invited to an introduction at the Head Office in Sundsvall to meet each other, and to know more about SCAs operations and sustainability work. At SCA they will get familiar with their workplace, but also visit other SCA operations and the program also includes a personal task. 

At SCA there are many exciting professions and a lot of younger people are interested in sustainability issues and there the forest has many exciting areas. Of course, we also want them to thrive and be attracted to apply for higher technical education after their time with us. 

During 2022 we will have six participating young people with us at SCA. This year the participants will be at SCA R&D Centre, SCA Logistics, SCA Pulp and SCA Containerboard.

This year's participants, from left: Frida Florén, Ida Koserius, Isak Stenlund, Alexander Elfström and Milad Najem Abdulali. Arvid Fält is also participating.

More about The Technology Leap
Since the internship started 2012, approximately 75 young people have been with us at SCA, and several of them have later decided to continue with a higher technical education. The statistics show that about 83 percent choose to study after the program, and of these, 78 percent choose a higher technical education.

The Technology Leap is managed by The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences in cooperation with employers, and the aim is to attract more young people to higher technical education.
