Kay, 18, Apprentice,

Information Technologist specializing in application development (Informatiker EFZ Fachrichtung Applikationsentwicklung), School in Muttenz/Pratteln, Switzerland.

Why have you chosen this educational system?

I could have also gone to the high school but instead I chose an apprenticeship as I can there pursue a 100 percent my interest in programming and additionally gain some practical experience. As I chose to do the professional baccalaureate during the apprentice ship, I am still able to study afterwards.  

Why have you chosen Swiss-AS as your educational partner?

As a child I wanted to be a pilot at SWISS, later on I decided to become a Software Developer. As I wanted to work in a bigger company, Swiss-AS was the perfect match.  

In which department do you work and what are your goals?

I'm working in the R&D department as a Developer. I am not assigned to a single team but switch the teams during the apprentice ship.

I work three days a week at Swiss-AS in Allschwil and the other two days I'm at school. One of the two school days, I'm in the vocational school where I learn everything that is related to computer science and, the other day I'm doing the professional baccalaureate in Muttenz for general education

I like to learn and improve in a real environment, with real practise.  

Why have you chosen Swiss-AS as your partner?

I was very interested by the fact that Swiss-AS is operating globally and is a member of the Swiss International Air Lines Group.  

What are your career/educational plans after your apprentice ship?

My plans would be to do some more education and do some courses to improve my skills. The main goal would be obviously to continue working for Swiss-AS.  

What is your “dream job”?

I wish to be involved in a project which clearly helps and improves a company and its product. I want to be able to say “do you see this? I’ve worked on that to make it possible! And I’m proud of it!”.
