A new initiative, called Trade School Geneva, will launch in Geneva next month, allowing students to barter with teachers for classes, which they may not otherwise be inclined to attend or able to afford.

Providing an experimental and innovative learning space, Trade School Geneva, will enable students to sign up for a class by agreeing to meet the barter requests of teachers.  So a teacher offering a class on how to make butter, for example, may request anything from cookies and tea, through to household items or clothes, or even theater tickets. In many cases, the teachers ask for nothing more than a smile or a hug!

To mark the opening of this non-traditional learning initiative, Trade School Geneva will hold a launch party this evening at the Café Gavroche in Geneva.  Everyone is welcome to come along and join the co-creators for a drink and some snacks, and find out more about this unique concept to arrive in Switzerland!

What do you think about the quality of schooling in the Lake Geneva region? Do you have a child in private education here, and are you happy with the level of teaching that they are receiving? Are there any areas that you think could be improved, such as the provision for languages or extra-curricular facilities?

If schooling is a hot topic for you and you would like your voice to be heard, then you are invited by the Parthenon Group, an international education consultancy based in London who contacted knowitall.ch last week, to take part in a special survey, conducted on behalf of about 30 international schools from around the world, who are keen to find out more about the expectations of parents choosing an international education for their children.
