Our expertise

We strengthen the competencies of people, increase the competitiveness of enterprises and foster the inclusiveness of social and economic systems.

We offer customised solutions in the following working areas:

Vocational education and training
Initial Vocational Education and Training prepares young men and women with the relevant knowledge, skills and attitudes to successfully enter the world of work or continue higher education.
Labour market insertion
Labour Market Insertion addresses the needs of people who are unemployed or at risk of being made redundant. It provides them with information, learning and labour market integration measures. The goal is to increase their employability and opportunities for productive wages and self-employment.
Upskilling and reskilling
Upskilling and reskilling enable men and women to improve or update their knowledge, skills and attitudes so they can remain or advance in employment or self-employment.   
Sustainable agriculture
Rural development and a strong agricultural sector reduce poverty and are the basis for sustainable economic development at all levels. 
Sustainable Tourism Development
Tourism is a sector with potential for sustainable economic growth for both developing and emerging economies. 
Green cities
By 2050, 70% of the world's population will be living in urban areas. Cities in developing countries face considerable challenges. Swisscontact has solutions to these problems and is preparing the way for livable and sustainable green cities. 
Trade facilitation
Swisscontact is facilitating national and global trade to improve growth potential and competitiveness of businesses and to foster sustainable job and income creation.
Entrepreneurial ecosystem development 
Entrepreneurship and the development of entrepreneurial ecosystems drive economies for job creation, income generation, and contribution to the SDGs.
