Swiss VET Academy

Welcome to the Swiss VET Academy!

For several years, vocational education and training (VET), including upper-secondary-level VET and tertiary-level professional education, has become a priority for many governments and companies worldwide. Switzerland captures the focus of attention with its dual-track VET system, on one hand, and a low youth unemployment rate and a high competition and innovation capacity, on the other hand. The Swiss dual-track vocational education and training (“VET” also referred as “apprenticeship”) is based on a public-private partnership with a leading role in the economy. Training takes place at the company and at the VET-school. It is recognised for its:

  • Qualified workforce (with the skills and competencies required by the private sector)
  • Low youth unemployment
  • High labour market integration
  • Permeability

In the past few years, SFIVET with its expertise and methods supports the development of dual-track vocational education and training for other countries. Through its comprehensive competence-based approach, SFIVET seeks to ensure that vocational education and training meets the needs of the labour market.

The method has been proven to be successful in projects in Bulgaria, Serbia, Kosovo, India, Singapore, Senegal and other countries. It can be adapted to various contexts. With the SWISS VET Academy we aim to share, to discuss and to transfer elements of successful VET.
