VET in pole position

The attitude of the Swiss towards general education vs. VET

SCCRE Staff Paper 18 presents more results from the large-scale opinion poll among nearly 6000 Swiss in summer 2015. The evaluation of the expressed educational preferences shows that the Swiss still have preferences for the vocational education and training, even for their own children. This good anchoring of VET in the public opinion also expresses itself inversely in the common scepticism, or even rejection of a further expansion of the baccalaureate and university system.
