Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

SwissCham Beijing, in collaboration with the Swiss Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, is pleased to invite you to the Online Panel Discussion "How is the Swiss Education sector adapting to meet the Future of Work?"

In this seminar, we will explore the topic with a panel of three experts providing different perspectives of the sector: High School level (Montreux International School, Oriental Education), Higher Education (Swiss Education Group) and Vocational Education (Global Swiss Learning).

The seminar will initially outline the context of the Future of Work and then invite the panel to outline the impact of COVID on their organisation, what lessons they have learned, what new gaps in the market they have identified, and what they have done to adapt their product or services in response to the changing environment.

We look forward to e-meeting you.


此次研讨会,我们邀请了三位专家就该主题进行探讨,阐述不同教育阶段的观点:高中教育(蒙特勒国际学校,Oriental Education),高等教育(瑞士教育集团)和职业教育(Global Swiss Learning)。
