Adult education

Teaching adults: with confidence and well prepared

Anyone who has ever taught knows: adults bring a lot of experience to class and often also high demands.

The confidence needed to teach adults is something that can be learned. The methodological and didactic foundations are the first step towards this. And those who enjoy standing in front of a class already have an advantage.

Those who teach adults, either in their own company, for example, or in in an association or at a language school, have many options to hone their skills. Here are some courses that are particularly popular:

SVEB certificate

In some schools and companies, the Swiss Association for Further Education (SVEB) certificate is a prerequisite for giving courses for adults. Those who complete this certificate are well prepared. And those who are already teaching also benefit: you reflect both on yourself and your role as a course leader, learn new methods and expand your routine.

Language teaching entry

If you already teach a language or would like to start, here you can develop the basics to make lessons practical and lively. You reflect on your role as a course leader, recognise strengths and potential, set yourself development goals.


There is a wide range of courses to become a facilitator:

  • Swiss federal diploma (facilitator)
  • SVEB certificate
  • EUROLTA certificate
  • Courses for language teachers
  • Integration (fide)
  • Introduction to Adult Education
