Facts and Figures

One mission - three partners

The provision of VET and professional education is a mission collectively shouldered by the Confederation, the cantons and professional organisations. These three partners are jointly committed to the highest possible standard of quality within the Swiss VPET system. They also strive to ensure the availability of an adequate number of apprenticeships and training courses.

Completion rates for 2021

At the beginning of 2023, the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SEFRI) decided not to republish the «Facts & Figures» brochure in its usual form. 

For this reason, the 2022 version will continue to be used until 2024, when the new concept has been developed.

Complete set of slides

The charts in the SERI brochure have been compiled into a set of slides, which can very easily be included in presentations.
