Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,
It was slightly more than a year ago, in April 2021, at the National Vocational Education Conference, that President Xi Jinping emphasized optimizing the positioning of vocational education, and promoting the integration of vocational and general education.
The Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai is organizing the "So Swiss" Pop-up Event in November 2022. Tuesday, November 22 is dedicated to Education. During that day, SwissCham is organizing a program that includes short presentations and a round table on Vocational Training (VPET). The Embassy of Switzerland is also presenting a VPET exhibition.
This education day's central theme will be around Vocational and Professional Education and Training (VPET), in which Swiss government representatives, Swiss companies, local universities and vocational training schools, as well as other players will share and discuss Swiss experiences with local parties.
A white paper about Vocational and Professional Education and Training will also be released. This paper includes case studies from Swiss companies, some of them will be showcased in the VPET exhibition by the Embassy of Switzerland.
We are looking forward to welcoming you!
Yours SwissCham Team
