During the past decade vocational education policy has been furthering training networks. Enterprises which are too small or too specialised to offer an apprenticeship place on their own join a network of training companies. The responsibility for recruitment, placement, and formal qualifica- tion lies with a professionalised lead organisation. During their apprenticeship, the apprentices switch their training company on a (half-)yearly rotational basis. Based on a case study of four training net- works in Switzerland the aim of this paper is to understand the reasons for the slow and hesitant insti- tutionalisation of this new organisational form of VET that has high potential for improving quality of VET, for creating additional apprenticeship places and for integration socially disadvantaged youth into post-compulsory education.
