8.3.4 Higher arts education and professional training
Swiss Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Arts Education have been accredited by external agencies in 2010. Conceivably, some programmes will modify their profiles due to evaluation results.
On the long-term agenda of the Swiss Federal Office of Culture (BAK) are the promotion of professional arts education, the formal recognition of artistic professions, and the re-training of artists who are no longer able to practise their art or trade. The first concrete measures are being taken in the dance sector.
