VALUING OUR PEOPLE
The Scheufele Family recognises the importance of training future generations in order to ensure that the Chopard jewellery and watch-making traditions are upheld. Chopard created the first jewellery-training unit in 1980, followed by a dedicated watchmaking school in Fleurier.
Our apprenticeship programmes must be highly comprehensive in order to develop the necessary watch and jewellery professional skills. Each year the Maison trains about 40 apprentices in the following fields: jewellery, watchmaking, polymechanical, micromechanical and surface finishing.
The State of Geneva has recognized our efforts granting us the “Best Training Company Prize” in the “Applied Arts” category. Furthermore, two of our apprentices were recently rewarded by the State of Geneva for the best apprenticeship in jewellery and watchmaking.
