You should be young and you need to be fluent in a Swiss language.

In Bern there is the BIZ with all the information you need, but mainly in German. They can advise you best, they are a government organisation, offering a free service, & run by the education ministry. You can call in, see what they have, and make an appointment to see a specialist.

Actually age is not of importance. After being downsized as a manager of a Swiss business, my Swiss neighbor decided to do an apprenticeship in carpentry. Another friend (50+, American-Swiss) also has decided to do one, albeit in another field. The time may differ with respect to one done by a young student depending on previous studies and experience. Check out the BIZ as mentioned for more info.

I forgot to mention: the BIZ here nearby (Baden) is open on Saturdays, maybe the one located near you is as well.

Re: What kind of apprentiscehips they have here in Switzerland?

I do wish you the best of luck - but without one of the national languages, it will be very hard. Young Swiss people are finding it increasingly difficult to find a good apprenticeship (any, in fact)- as there is more demand than supply. Most employers will take on the local youngsters, as they work closely with the schools and the Career Advice officers. As they have the 'pick of the best' - you will have to show exceptional talent or experience for them to take you on without speaking the local language, or local contacts/network. Have you got the Swiss end of school certificate, which is normally required? Perhaps you might find something in Hotel/restaurant in a tourist area due to your other languages.

Does anybody know what sort of permit one needs to apply for an apprenticeship?
