27.05.2021 | gfs.bern on behalf of the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation SERI

Main conclusions of the Transition Barometer April 2021:

– 51% of young people at the transition point already have a firm solution for the next stage of their education

– 63% of apprenticeship positions offered are already filled


The transition barometer examines the situation of young people at the first transition point to upper-secondary level and the situation of apprenticeship providers each spring and summer.

The barometer shows in real time whether there are specific challenges for the Confederation, the cantons and the economy. Detailed information can be found in the Cockpit (in French, German and Italian).
