Switzerland is developing into a country of highly educated. Already next year more people will have a Tertiary education, as a degree of upper secondary education. And from 2030 onwards, around every Second of 25 - to 64-is a University or a higher vocational education completed. In 2017, it was still 43 percent.
in Contrast, the proportion of people who have, at most, an apprenticeship or a school-leaving exam is decreasing, in the next 20 years, from 45 to 40 percent. More and more often, close to after that a tertiary education. Stable at around 11 per cent of the share remains in the future that, after the compulsory school, no further education and training.
These forecasts, the Federal Council in its adopted yesterday the report on the consequences of the demographic development for the education sector. The analysis of an order of the national Council's education Commission. Accordingly, the General level of education in Switzerland is increasing in the next 20 years. This corresponds to the demand on the labour market, writes the Federal Council.
More Points for Studied
data from the state Secretariat for economic Affairs (Seco) suggests that: 70 percent of persons with a secondary in Professions with a lower than average demand for skilled workers. In contrast, two-thirds of tertiary graduates in Occupations with above-average needs. Already in the last twelve years, a "clear shift" had taken place – to Jobs for which a University degree was necessary, the Federal Council. The business demand for people with a high school education is, according to the report, so that you can covered only two-thirds of domestic workers – a third of the economy depends on high skilled immigrants. The Federal Council emphasized that the "future balance between supply and demand" will crucially depend on how the Migration will develop.
The education economist Stefan Denzler confirmed the increased demand of the economy. Therefore, neither the wages have fallen to be increased unemployment, although the number of high school have increased graduates steadily, says the Deputy Director of the Swiss coordination centre for research in education. The development of more tertiary degrees have used in Switzerland by the end of the 1990s, with the establishment of the technical and pedagogical universities. In addition, have increased in many areas of the professionalization. "For many occupations, which were formed 20 years ago on secondary level II, you will have to take today's tertiary education," says Denzler. The associated and often complained Academisation does not concern him: "as Long as the field of higher education, not training in the labour market over, a further increase in the number of tertiary degrees is not problematic." Both Apprentices as well as for high school students specific connection existed in the solutions. In addition, the System is permeable. Only in that tenth of the population, which is also present in the future, no qualification at upper secondary level, see Denzler need for action: "often migrants are affected. Here, the policy needs to find solutions."
The economic assessment of the similar – even if she has fears, the study by the universities strength. "It would be a mistake of interpretation, if you would now extend the University area. Not everyone needs a degree", says Jürg Zellweger, head of the Department of education from the employers ' Association. "We are instructed in nursing, computer science, or technology professionals with a higher vocational education." Hans-Ulrich Bigler, Director of the trade Association, worries that the balance of the students could tilt the numbers to one side in the direction of the University.
Also, the report forecasts and a corresponding warning. Accordingly, the number of students increases in the next 20 years at the universities of 19 percent, the technical and teacher training colleges to 25 percent. What do the students mean to pay for the infrastructure of the educational institutions, were able yesterday to assess neither the cantons nor the universities: the need To analyze the nearly 100-page report, the first in-depth.
