BNF - National qualification programme

Promoting - courses and coaching

BNF offers a wide range of courses in German, French and English, all of which are designed for academics and oriented towards the Swiss labour market. The courses are made up of short, intensive units and allow you to select a made-to-measure range of training. If you are uncertain about your future professional path, personal coaching can help you work out what to do.

The ‚Kiosk‘ of methods and skills is the core of the BNF continued training spectrum and focuses on various aspects of the job application process. Courses usually last from one to three days. Topics include Networking, Job Application, Successful Conversations and Negotiations and Competency Awareness. We also offer a range of cross-sectional courses (project management, Intellectual Property, Social Insurance, ...), as well as courses designed to enhance computer skills (Excel, InDesign, ...).
