Besides in-house training, it is also possible to improve the abilities of the employees with the projects with the help of the cooperation of the schools and industry. In this research, the initiation, planning, implementation, development and the evaluation of the "Group Leader Training Program" that has been implemented and developed for the training of group leader candidates of Bosch Bursa Plants, which is one of the leading intuitions of automotive industry, is examined. In this model, which comprises the education of the employees in Uludag University, 325 staff in nine groups has been certificated after completing the program of 280 hours and ten modules and other personal development courses between 2001 and 2008.
