Choice of occupation and apprenticeship market
Swiss dual-track VET programmes rely on a functioning apprenticeship market. Our aim is to shed light on the functioning of the apprenticeship market and to draw reliable conclusions for policymakers and practitioners. To this end, statistical and econometric analyses are used to examine processes within the Swiss apprenticeship market, within Swiss full-time school-based VET programmes and within tertiary-level professional education.
Our research aims to gain a better understanding of the decision-making and interaction of the key actors in the VET system and to draw reliable conclusions for policymakers and practitioners. Of interest are the key actors on the apprenticeship market, apprentices and companies in particular, but all other actors in the education system too. Our research often involves working with large datasets and suitable statistical/econometric methods.
