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.
