Host schools benefit from authentic and motivating language instruction.

Project description

Austausch & Wissenschaft

Einen Tag in die Naturwissenschaft eintauchen? – Hiermit ist es möglich! Schülerinnen und Schüler der 6.-9. Klasse (8.-11. HarmoS) aus der Deutschschweiz und der Romandie begegnen sich während einem Tag an der École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

Class exchange

School classes from different language regions of Switzerland meet up to immerse themselves in another culture and use a foreign language by conversing with other pupils of the same age in a fun way. Exchanging ideas and sharing experiences with their peers make learning a foreign language fun for the pupils. The class exchange funding programme supports visits from elementary, secondary and vocational school classes. As part of the class exchange funding programme and in collaboration with various institutions in the field of culture and education, Movetia is also developing new and innovative forms of theme-based exchanges between school classes within Switzerland.

European Mobility Vocational Education and Training

From local expert to global player: innovative institutions can support their learners, recent VET graduates, VET professionals or their teaching staff in a targeted way with a period abroad (in Europe) –linguistically, professionally, culturally, socially.

European Mobility school education

The mobility project supports continuing education and training, classroom observation and teaching activities for teachers and other school staff in another European country.

International mobility outside Europe for vocational education and training (VET)

Worldwide stays abroad: VET establishments can prepare their learners, VET graduates, VET professionals or teaching staff at an international level. Those taking part in the mobility familiarise themselves with the work and training culture of other countries, and develop a path towards successful partnership beyond cultural differences. Besides language skills and project-related knowledge, they can also extend their learning about the other country. This creates lasting relationships between the learners from Switzerland and the foreign employers, which opens the door for further cooperation.

International school partnerships

Pupils take part in an exchange with those of the same age from other cultural and language areas outside Europe: thanks to international partnerships, Swiss schools can organise an exchange for their pupils, and thereby gather experiences from throughout the world for the classroom. The participating pupils from both countries develop a project together and also meet in person, along with their teachers.
