For the next generation in the hotel industry

Certified as a «TOP apprenticing company»

The BELVEDERE HOTEL FAMILY has successfully reached the first stage of the support system of the TOP-Ausbildungsbetrieb (TAB) foundation. The company now receives certification as a «TOP apprenticing company», which identifies businesses that are particularly committed to training young people.

Finding suitable apprentices and training them properly is a challenge that many companies face today. Today's vocational trainers not only have to be technically up to date and impart knowledge, but also act as a reference person for the learners and need corresponding social skills.

In order to be even better equipped for this task in the future, we have successfully completed the first stage of the TOP Apprenticing Company Foundation support system. On the one hand, this provides us with concretely applicable knowledge and training material for apprentice training, and on the other hand, it officially awards and certifies us as a «TOP training company». This certification serves as a visible quality feature across all sectors to help young people in their decision-making process during the apprenticeship search.

By joining the TAB system, we have taken an important step in the training of apprentices. After reaching the first level, we now have the opportunity to tackle levels 2 and 3 of the system at an individual pace, thus expanding our training competence even more.

What is a TOP apprenticing company?

The TOP-Ausbildungsbetrieb (TAB) foundation is a national support and award system that contributes to the attractiveness of industrial occupations. TAB supports companies from all sectors in improving their training quality and awards the label to companies that are particularly committed to training young people.

TOP-Ausbildungsbetrieb stands out from many labels in that it not only assesses existing quality, but also helps with development in advance. The system, which is unique in Switzerland to date, was awarded the ENTERPRIZE by former Federal Councillor Johann Schneider-Ammann in 2017 and is recommended by the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET).
