The 2nd Vocational Education Training (VET) Orientation will be held on July 19th at the Embassy of Switzerland in the Republic of Korea.


The first VET Orientation was held in 2015 before the first group of Korean students enrolled in the VET program was sent to Switzerland. The VET program was a joint effort between Korea Institute for Advancement of Technology (KIAT) and Swissmem. Process of the program would first start out with Swiss companies located in Korea to hire local students, who would be educated in the local facility in the Korean facility, then go to Switzerland to spend two years for the on-site training.

This event is organized as a facilitation of linkage among trainees and Swiss companies before the trainees move to Switzerland.

Companies participating this year are Maxon Motor, Roche Diagnostics, and Güdel.
