In the German-speaking countries, training networks have been supported by the relevant national ministries for vocational education and training since the end of the 1990s. In the initial vocational training model supported by the Swiss state, the trainees are rotated between training companies several times and thereby gain a broader insight into the fields of work covered by their training occupation. On the basis of a study on training networks in Switzerland, we investigate how far this model contributes to broader competence for vocational proficiency, but also how trainees and companies evaluate this rotation between learning venues.
