"Three reasons make dual-track vocational education and training a strategic success factor for Switzerland: no other training model integrates young people better into everyday working life where, step-by-step, and day-by-day, they gain a foothold in the real world of business. Learning is not one-sided, companies are also learners as they actively address the needs and expectations of the next generation. And finally, I am convinced that people can best develop their potential if they enjoy freedom of action and trust."
