Win-win situation

Both countries benefit from the skills exchange. China is experiencing exceptional growth and the young professionals from Switzerland will provide required practical knowledge and experience. In addition, they will also have the opportunity to work on their interpersonal skills and experience what it is like to work in another culture.

Strong markets such as China depend on good specialists. For this reason, Switzerland’s dual education system has attracted worldwide interest. As a leading training center, Schindler Switzerland’s Vocational Training program values experience exchange, networking and global cooperation.
