I began working with Formations&Co almost one year ago and it feels like I’ve been here for ages. Management made me feel at home straight away, a helping hand on teaching methods is just a phone call away and the freedom to create each of my courses allows me to personnalise instruction and adapt my teaching to my students and their specifities. I am very happy to work with Formations&Co!



Ich LIEBE meine Arbeit als Sprachlehrerin, vor allem LIEBE ich es, für und mit Formations&CO zu arbeiten. Das Team ist sehr fachkompetent, nett und seriös. Zusammen arbeiten wir auf einer Vertrauensbasis und wir treffen uns auch gerne als Gruppe zum Gedanken austauschen. Das Team respektiert seine Mitarbeiter und gibt  ihnen wertvolle pädagogische Unterstützung und Feedbacks.

Es ist angenehm, in einer dynamischen Umgebung in einem harmonischen Verhältnis arbeiten zu dürfen. Das Management und das pädagogische Team sind immer bereit, auf unsere Bedürfnisse und Fragen zu hören. Sie sorgen auch dafür, dass wir interessante, abwechslungsreiche und herausfordernde Einsätze als Lehrer erhalten. Bei Formation & Co zeigt das Management eine aufrichtige Wertschätzung für unsere Arbeit und unsere Leistungen.
