Three platforms for an effective apprenticeship

The SwissSkills Initiative engages in a broad-based, powerful and positive dialogue with the public on apprenticeship training. This dialogue takes place on three platforms, which make practical professional training more tangible and accessible. We are actively engaged in all three channels.

SwissSkills Career: SwissSkills Career uses its digital platform and physical presence at apprenticeship fairs to present apprenticeship training as an excellent point of entry to a career. It shares emotionally resonant, positive success stories about apprenticeship training and professional work.

Our role: the platform’s exclusive partner

SwissSkills Championships: We are playing our part to promote the national vocational championships: the best advertisement for apprenticeship training.

SwissSkills2018 will be held in September 2018 in Bern. 1,100 young apprentices and professionals are expected and will put their skills to the test in 75 Swiss championships. The 150,000 or so expected visitors will be given an insight into 135 professions.

Our role: the only main sponsoring partner from the sector

SwissSkills Team: We help the members of the Swiss national team to prepare for the international championships - EuroSkills and WorldSkills - so they can continue to demonstrate the competitiveness of the Swiss educational system in Switzerland and internationally.
