a refresher course for students arriving from abroad

Adapting to the school system in French-speaking Switzerland

If your child arrives in Switzerland from abroad during the year,
if he/she attends a private school, special education school or school outside the canton, he/she is – as a general rule – admitted to a class corresponding to his/her age.

  • arrival in primary cycles (1H to 8H): orientation is based on age, academic record and skills
  • arrival at secondary school (9H to 11H): students must take an exam (determined by their age and academic record) to determine which track they will attend.

Integrating and adapting to the Swiss school system is not always easy for students from private schools or countries with very different educational backgrounds.

A refresher course in French or other subjects is often necessary.

Benk’s school coaches benefit from the support and advice of teachers in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, so that they are always up to date with current curricula.

Illness and schooling: a refresher course is needed

Combining schooling and medical care through online tutoring

How can we limit the consequences of an accident or illness on a student’s schooling and future?

In these often complex situations, it’s important to stay in touch – or get back in touch – with schooling, and to maintain or reactivate what you’ve learned, so that you don’t end up dropping out.

Depending on the subject and duration of care, the program is defined in consultation with parents and doctors. Depending on the student’s availability and treatments.
Benk’s school coaches can help your child overcome this transition, with a personalized, tailor-made refresher course. Benk’s private tutoring helps your child rediscover the pleasure of learning and regain self-confidence, so they can stay on course and move towards a professional future.

Disability and schooling

What’s it like to homeschool?

It’s not always easy to send your child to school at home.

For medical reasons, or if the child is unable to attend a specialized school, home schooling is the best option.

This solution makes it possible to respect the child’s rhythm and overcome his or her difficulties, according to his or her abilities, while ensuring that the subjects taught and the knowledge and skills acquired are in line with the plan d’études romand (PER).

Benk’s school coaches have solutions adapted to each situation, in partnership with the parents and the student. We make sure that all personal, medical, social and academic elements are taken into consideration.
