About Us

We believe in the Swiss VET System

SkillSonics is an international provider of apprenticeship training and professional skill development based on the Swiss dual-track VET system. Based in Switzerland and India, SkillSonics implements training programs for apprentices, trainers, examiners and vocational education experts throughout the world.

  • Swiss VET System
  • Professional skill development

Apprenticeship training has a long-standing tradition in Switzerland. Today, VET is the predominant form of high school education in Switzerland. About 65% of Swiss youth are in a VET program. Most VET courses are offered through the company-based dual-track system, so-called because there are two places of learning -- a vocational school for general education and a host company for the practical training.

 

SkillSonics offers introductory to advanced courses based on industry-proven Swiss know-how and methods. We do not adopt ‘a one size fits all’ approach but one tailored to customer needs and labor market demands. SkillSonics aligns with local education and training systems in the design and implementation of its programs. We collaborate with top labor market organizations, institutes and companies active in apprenticeship training and skills development. Currently, SkillSonics has 32 courseware design, delivery and assessment experts, trainers, project coordinators and management staff in Switzerland and India.
