Sporting career with an apprentice­ship as a commercial assis­tant AFC

The four-year commercial apprenticeship in the insurance sector gives you the best possible preparation for the world of work in parallel with your sports training.

What awaits you in the sports apprenticeship

The course begins in August and can be taken as profile B, E or M. Your apprenticeship is structured in such a way that you can fit in all your school, work and sporting commitments.

Diverse insights and broad-based knowledge

During the two years you spend on the job, you will gain different insights within an insurance-specific department (e.g. motor vehicle, property and asset insurance or insurance accounting). To broaden your theoretical knowledge, your apprenticeship will be supplemented by attending vocational school and taking external cantonal courses.

Sport, education, practice, networking, fun – with us, you'll never be bored

The first two years of your apprenticeship will be spent outside Helvetia, undergoing basic training at college. This basic training will prepare you for the practical duties you will carry out within the company. During the second foundation year, you can apply for our advertised sports apprenticeship in order to spend the third and fourth years at Helvetia. For added variety in your day-to-day work at Helvetia, there will be various events such as the StartCamp, you will take part in the General Assembly and different workshops.

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.
