Presentation

In Switzerland, the function of "Nominating Authority" is carried out by the General Secretariat of the Swiss Conference of Cantonal Ministers of Education (EDK).

The function of "Contact Point " is provided by the information and documentation centre of the EDK.

In Switzerland there is no national ministry for Education and Training as it is the Cantons which bear the main responsibility for education. The Swiss Conference of Cantonal Ministers of Education (EDK ) is an assembly of 26 cantonal ministers who are responsible for education, training, culture and sport in their respective cantons. The central EDK office is the general secretariat in Berne; it runs an information and documentation centre (IDES).
