We also offer the flexibility to co-host or co-create the class material with the professors.

Mock Consulting

Basic vocational training and higher vocational training


Anchoring sustainability in basic and higher vocational education and training qualifications

The skills required in basic and higher vocational education and training are constantly evolving, and expectations regarding the positive environmental and social impact of professions are increasing. To address the growing importance of sustainability, the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) launched the “Sustainable development in vocational education and training and continuing education” funding priority in October 2023. The aim of this programme is to encourage and support partners and stakeholders in the field of vocational and continuing education and training to unleash their potential in sustainability.

For the “Environment” dimension, SERI works closely with the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) and the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) as part of the professional development process. With regard to the “economy” and “society” dimensions of sustainability, the B Lab Switzerland Foundation will – among other things – support professional organisations in integrating sustainability aspects into their curricula and other relevant documents. By integrating sustainability, we can prepare the professionals of tomorrow to meet the challenges of sustainability and accelerate the transition to a sustainable economy.
