About us

The Education Cooperative works with the people it represents: teachers in  primary, secondary and vocational education. The Education Cooperative was established in 2011 by  five major educational associations:

All these organisations retain their specific tasks and objectives within the Education Cooperative. Together  they represent 200,000 teachers, which is over two-thirds of the teaching population.

Twice a year, the Education Cooperative meets with other teaching organisations, with the aim to increase the exposureof their activities and to involve them in our own activities.
