Education, Professionals & Diversity

Education is key to ensure Switzerland’s continued prosperity and innovative strength. In dialogue with society, economy, politics, and educational institutions, we set the course for a high-performing digital workforce pipeline to transform Switzerland into a leading digital nation.

Education boosts international competitiveness

In order to remain competitive, Switzerland’s most important resource is education. The Swiss education system faces major challenges. Global economic and ecological changes and the rapid development of information technology are transforming our lives. A good understanding of this is a central aspect of general education, especially in basic vocational training and continuing education. The employability of the population must be ensured. A critical discussion and joint actions with society, economy, politics and educational institutions is necessary.
