Where teachers meet and learn



A star splash of words taken from Vaud members’ workshop reviews

ETAS Vaud region is now coordinated by 2 new volunteers; Sharon Acton and Sonia Spenlehauer.  Ruth Benvegnen and Lucy Kottsieper stepped down at the end of 2017 after a combined length of 14 years of managing the region.  More news about ETAS Vaud's new RCs coming soon.  Watch this space!


Vaud currently has a membership of circa 50 members.  These members range from trainee to experienced teachers, teacher trainers and school owners from both the private and public sectors.  Vaud holds a minimum of two workshops a year and tries to cater to the broad range of interests that members hold such as teaching young learners, corporate and business English, coaching individuals for exams etc. Suggestions are always welcome!
