Contrary to the expectations that might justifiably have been formed based on the experiences from previous recessions, Switzerland’s apprenticeship market has thus far remained unscathed by the downturn triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the multiplicity of measures which may be directly or indirectly responsible for this makes it impossible to judge which measure was beneficial and which not. The surprisingly good way in which the crisis has been overcome is no guarantee that another stress test in 2021 will also pass off smoothly if the high degree of insecurity felt by companies in the autumn of 2020 is taken as a yardstick for the further development of the apprenticeship market.
