The third International Congress on Vocational and Professional Education and Training will be held in 2018. It will take place between 6 and 8 June 2018 in Winterthur.
In 2014, the Confederation has launched the first international congress devoted exclusively to vocational education and training. The main focus was on image building, bilateral exchanges between the private sector and policymakers and the presentation of «good practice» in host companies and vocational education and training schools.
Switzerland’s dual-track Vocational Education and Training system is one of our country’s great strengths. The initial and continuing training of young people is the foundation that enables our economy and society to have an adequate number of skilled workers and managers. The private and public sector share responsibility for the vocational education and training sector and work together as partners.
