About SBB

Students receive the best possible practical training with prospects of a job, and companies can employ professionals that they need, now and in the future. These are the objectives of the Foundation for Cooperation on Vocational Education, Training and Labour Market (SBB). Within SBB, vocational education and training (VET) and the labour market cooperate at national, sectoral and regional level.

  • we develop and maintain the qualification structure

  • we provide research and information on the labour market, work placement and efficiency of VET-programmes

We also advise the minister of Education, Culture and Science on linking vocational education with the job market.
