Where teachers meet and learn

Central Switzerland

Welcome to the Central Switzerland regional page. The region is, as its name suggests, right in the center of Switzerland and surrounds the beautiful lake of Lucerne.

We are new to the job and although we haven’t met all of our members yet, (almost 100) we look forward to representing ETAS and supporting our members in many ways.  We hosted our first event in March. It was an idea exchange to share ideas. Although it was a small group, it was wonderful to talk shop with like-minded professionals and get to know each other. Our next event is planned in autumn, so check back in September for details or contact us by email.
