Short- and long-term impacts of Covid-19 on VET
SARS-CoV-2 spread around the world with unprecedented speed and also presented Switzerland with major challenges. In the shortest possible time, measures to contain the pandemic were devised and implemented. The research project «Short- and long-term impacts of Covid-19 on VET: Strengthening VET in times of crises» aims to explore the short and long-term impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on dual-track vocational education and training (VET) in Switzerland.
The research project «Short- and long-term impacts of Covid-19 on VET: Strengthening VET in times of crises»focuses on differences between occupational fields and regions in terms of training processes, supply and demand of apprenticeship places and educational pathways and labour market entry of young adults who completed their training during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The joint research project between the University of Bern, Department of Sociology of Education and the Swiss Federal University for Vocational Education and Training SFUVET under the leadership of Dr. David Glauser and Prof Dr. Irene Kriesi is being funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation as part of the NFP80: COVID-19 in Society national funding programme.
