Case management (vocational education and training)

Case management (vocational education and training) is a procedure which provides measures for young people whose entry into the working world is greatly jeopardised. Case management identifies vulnerable young people at an early stage, and supports them in a coordinated and structured process. These measures can be taken when a career is being chosen, during the transition from compulsory education to upper secondary level, during vocational education and training (VET), or after VET. A central case management body which goes beyond institutional boundaries ensures a planned, coordinated and controlled process. The aim of the case management vocational education and training is to prevent young people from dropping out of the education system, respectively, to make them take a first post-compulsory examination and to integrate them into the working process. The cantons implement case management. The Confederation, professional organisations and other institutions support the cantons.
