In 2018, Schindler Switzerland started a pioneering vocational education and training program aimed at equipping refugees with the skills they need to work in Switzerland.
In this video, two participants of the pre-apprenticeship program share how it has helped them adapt to life in Switzerland.
Schindler Switzerland has long been recognised for the quality of its vocational education and training program. Year after year the Schindler Switzerland Apprenticeship Program trains young people in a range of professions linked to the business, offering students a strong start to their career.
In 2018, Schindler Switzerland took on a new challenge – they decided to develop vocational education and training courses aimed at refugees. There are different courses depending on the participants’ education and experience, but the objective is the same – give young people the skills to integrate into the workforce in Switzerland.
