Apprenticeship in information techno­logy AFC

In the age of digitalization, information technology is becoming ever more important. This four-year apprenticeship will equip you to succeed in this dynamic environment.

What awaits you in the apprenticeship as an information technologist AFC

The apprenticeship in information technology can you choose in specializing in application development or systems engineering.

The information technology apprenticeship starts in August and is offered in the subject areas of systems engineering and application development. It can be taken with or without a vocational Matura. In addition to the practical experience you will gain in the company, you will broaden your theoretical knowledge in vocational school throughout the entire duration of your apprenticeship.

Fun in the analogue network

The information technology apprenticeship is supplemented with various events and occasions. At the StartCamp, you will meet like-minded individuals who will share their enthusiasm, enjoyment and interests with you. When you attend the General Assembly in the second year of your apprenticeship you will gain completely new insights into the company. And in your third year, preparations take place for your final apprenticeship exams, which will then be duly celebrated. You will also be able to cultivate your network away from the computer – at the annual New Year apéro event. Because what's important is: while (event) { have_fun(); }

Help design your own apprenticeship

Our modular structure allows you to design your apprenticeship to suite your own interests. Here’s how it works: Some modules are compulsory and others are optional. So if you want to be a bit more creative, for example, you can apply your digital native know-how to a social media project. Or if you fancy improving your foreign language skills, you can spend a few months in a different language region abroad or in Switzerland as part of your apprenticeship. But even the compulsory modules still leave room for fun! For example, there’s the Start Camp, an event you take part in with other apprentices from all over Switzerland, or opportunities to focus on a specific theme in the context of your working and learning situation. We offer a wide range of courses because we recognize the importance of enabling you to help design your apprenticeship individually according to your personal interests and strengths.
