Together for vocational education.

We care about apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are a major foundation of the Swiss economy and improve the wellbeing of us all. As a main partner of SwissSkills and as one of Switzerland’s largest providers of vocational training, we are committed to helping you.

Our mission

  • To provide targeted support – so that young people can recognize their professional potential early on and use it to develop a fulfilling career.
  • To actively counter the shortage in skilled labor, so that Swiss SMEs can continue to make an important economic and social contribution.
  • To promote intact professional diversity – because it is one of the most important success factors of the Swiss economy.
