Source: Swiss Kanton Nidwalden News in German1. May 2020 An interpellation requires information as to whether school-strong young people could be integrated into the canton’s combined range of bridges. According to the government council, such young people are the exception. They also have other options for an interim solution. By means of interpellation, District Administrator Franziska Rüttimann wanted to know from the government council what happens to school-aged young people in the canton of Nidwalden who do not find a follow-up solution at the end of compulsory schooling or who break off their apprenticeship, and what options he sees Integrate young people into the combined range of bridges. In its answer, the government council points out that affected young people use private interim solutions and that parents have to pay for the costs. However, he also emphasizes that numerous offers are available that have no or only minimal costs, such as a housekeeping year or the land service. Demand is not shown Using a statistical approximation, the government council shows that an increase in private interim solutions, which are due to the lifting of the school bridging offer was expected at the beginning of the 2015/2016 school year, did not arrive. Education director Res Schmid assumes that “the majority of young people who have previously used the school bridging offer will find a solution on the apprenticeship market.” Although integrating school-strong young people into the combined bridging offer would theoretically be possible and could do so the model of the integrated orientation school with level subjects. From the point of view of the government council, it is reasonable to assume that the demand for bridge offers correlates with the corresponding offer – in other words, if bridge offers exist, they will also be used. “This thesis is also supported by statistical analysis,” explains education director Res Schmid. Since school-strong young people without a follow-up solution are the exception, the government council refrains from expanding the current range of offerings failed to reach their goal despite a realistic desire to work and active efforts to find a training place. In the bridging offer they are strengthened in their school skills and personal development and at the same time supported in the search for a suitable training position.
