01 Where can I find out about apprenticeships?

After completing compulsory education in Switzerland, students have the option of completing a vocational apprenticeship.
Further information (also in English) on the subject of apprenticeships and apprenticeship positions for young people can be found at here.

The BIZ (Educational Information Center - BIZ Canton Obwalden) Provides any information on the subject of career choice.
Some BIS also organize Career information events, where the professional world is presented.

Those who have shortlisted a profession but cannot yet make up their mind have the opportunity to take a Trial apprenticeship to complete. It is offered by training companies and usually lasts between one and five days. In this way, young people get to know the training company and gain a good insight into everyday working life. The training company, in turn, can assess whether someone is suitable for the desired profession.
