R&D in VET – scientifically sound knowledge for practitioners
SFIVET's R&D Division selects its research areas on the basis of strategic objectives, which are set forth in its research agenda. In doing so, R&D researchers pay particular attention to issues related to teaching and training practices. The newly gained knowledge is continuously fed back into SFIVET's basic and continuing training courses, and hence to practitioners. Research findings therefore benefit learners, their teachers and trainers, vocational schools, professional organisations, policymakers within the Swiss VPET system and society as a whole.
