Various reforms have been initiated in China in the field of vocational and professional education and training (VPET) in recent times, fostering a strong interest in Switzerland’s dual-track VPET system. This is reflected by the many Chinese delegations SFIVET has had the pleasure to host over recent years.
Knowledge about VPET in Chinese
The University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland and SFIVET have adapted former price supervisor and National Councillor Rudolf H. Strahm’s reference work on Switzerland’s dual-track VPET system and translated it into Chinese.
Foreword by the President of the Swiss Confederation
The book, which contains a foreword by Guy Parmelin, President of the Swiss Confederation, provides Chinese readers with an insight into Swiss vocational and professional education and training and outlines the key features of the dual-track VPET system. It also highlights the roles played by the universities of applied sciences and SFIVET.
