Show: Learn More

by Sean Power
  • Monday at 4.40pm - replayed throughout the week

A weekly show with Sean Power discussing all the education possibilities for kids in Switzerland.

Parents in Switzerland have a wide choice of schools for their children. There are the state options - each Swiss Canton has its own educational system - and there are the neighbouring countries. 

There are also a wide variety of private schools and each of those offer different courses, qualifications, and approaches to education. 

What is the best path for your child? UK 'A' levels or the International Baccalaureate or a US high school diploma? 

Each week, Sean Power, President of the Geneva Association of Private Schools, chats with Mark Butcher about all the latest educational news, developments, and advice for parents. 


Hear a new episode of Learn More every Monday at 4.40pm - replayed each day throughout the week. Check the complete WRS schedule
