- 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.
SkillSonics implements top-quality vocational education and training based on Swiss know-how and methods at companies, training institutes and public organizations, to address the global need for skilled labor and enhance the competitiveness and productivity of the private sector.
The Swiss Vocational Education and Training Initiative India (SVETII) was launched as a pilot project in 2008 by the Swiss-Indian Chamber of Commerce (SICC) in cooperation with Swissmem and the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET) to address the growing need for skilled professionals in India and beyond. SkillSonics was established to scale up the SVETII pilot project after its successful completion in 2011.
