Diverse but not yet perfect

In the field of continuing education and training (CET), Switzerland is among the international frontrunners regarding the CET participation rate of its population. Nevertheless there are differences based on social origin and qualification level (educational attainment). There are also differences between the companies’ CET policies. Small and micro-enterprises in particular often lack an explicit CET strategy.
