In December 2016 Matthias Jäger, Markus Maurer and Martin Fässler, three Swiss VET experts published their new book “Exportartikel Berufsbildung?” (“Vocational Education and Training – an export good?”). On 200 pages they discuss the practice and potential of skills development in international development. The book can be ordered from hep Verlag, unfortunately it is only available in German.

Co-Author Matthias Jäger explains the key underlying ideas (in English) in this interview.
