6th Congress on Research in Vocational Education and Training

For the sixth time, the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET) invites researchers to engage in an exchange of ideas and research findings and to reflect on VET issues.
“The end of VET as we know it” stands representative for a time of reconsideration of VET as a way of adequately preparing young adults for the world of work and for society. It is about coping with insecurity and disruption, building new technological and social competences as well as developing creativity for innovation. Demographic change and the expansion of higher education challenge VET as an attractive educational pathway to the labour market. With technological advances leading to more radical changes in the labour market, experts are calling for a reform of education, including vocational education and training, adult and professional education.

  • Date: 4 - 6 March 2019 
  • Venue: Swiss Federal Institute for
    Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET)
    Bern/Zollikofen, Switzerland
