Ann-Kathrin Nüchel is one of the best apprentices in northern Rhineland-Palatinate


Apprentice Ann-Kathrin Nüchel is one of the best apprentices at the IHK Koblenz. Her outstanding final examination, in which she achieved 96 out of a possible 100 points, was honoured as part of the IHK Best Apprentice Award. The award was presented to her by Dr Stefanie Hubig, Minister of Education for the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Even after successfully completing her training, she continues to work full throttle at the Ring: as Manager Track Operations, she supports the various events and is the contact person for many customers and organisers.

Nürburgring. Her love of the Ring and motorsport had already tipped the scales in favour of her future employer of choice before she started her apprenticeship. After a successful application, she therefore moved from Hennef (Sieg) to the Ring in 2020, where she began her training as an office management assistant. Like all apprentices at the Nürburgring, she passed through many departments and gained a wide range of insights into Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG, which is responsible for the operation of the entire race track and event location.

"The Nürburgring prepared me perfectly for my final exam"
The fact that the young Ring employee was able to graduate with an exceptionally good grade was of course due to her hard work, but also to the training company: "The Nürburgring prepared me perfectly for my final exam. The support of the team and the opportunity to take part in an IHK preparation course were crucial to my success. I'm very grateful for that," says the 24-year-old, who now has her sights firmly set on the race track after completing her training.

As Manager Track Operations, her desk is now just a few metres from the start and finish line of the legendary race track: in the start and finish building of the TÜV Rheinland Tower. From here, she oversees the operational implementation of various events and is the point of contact for customers and organisers of races, driver training sessions, tourist drives and much more. She is also responsible for personnel planning and invoicing for many events. There is never a dull moment here and that is exactly what makes the Nürburgring so exciting for Ann-Kathrin Nüchel. That's why she is now looking forward to many more exciting years at the Nürburgring.

A total of 37 apprentices are currently learning their trade at the Nürburgring

Just two years ago, the Nürburgring had one of the best IHK apprentices in Laura Simon - she also stayed at the Nürburgring and now works as Project Manager Events. There are currently a total of 37 young people learning their trade at the Nürburgring in various apprenticeship years and different job profiles.
