SFIVET’s R&D division: the interface between the Swiss education system and the labour market 

In addition to providing basic and continuing education and training, the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET) also carries out research and development activities in the area of upper-secondary level vocational education and training (VET) and tertiary-level professional education and training (PET). Both teaching and R&D are essential core competencies for SFIVET. By examining the correlations that exist between the Swiss education system and the Swiss labour market, SFIVET makes a substantial contribution to the analysis, optimisation and ongoing development of Switzerland’s VET/PET sector.
