The internationalisation of Switzerland’s VET system brings clear added value for all involved.
- Apprentices and recent VET graduates enhance their personal, social, intercultural, language and technical skills through mobility and therefore improve their employability.
- Vocational training offices and vocational schools can position themselves as innovative and attractive training centres, help strengthen Switzerland’s VET system, counteract the skills shortage and expand their international links.
- Professional associations can get involved in delivering future-oriented VET with a focus on training open-minded young professionals.
- Educational institutions work together in transnational, European partnerships (involving Swiss and European actors) to develop innovative results, exchange good practice and tackle skills gaps with regard to the occupational profiles of specific sectors.
Movetia covers certain costs of European mobility projects through flat-rate allowances, and the costs associated with Swiss actors participating in strategic partnerships with European players. As a basic principle, projects should contribute to the development of the Swiss education system and help develop international links.
