The Agnodice Foundation made available guidelines for schools to support trans students.
Geneva’s Federation of LGBT Associations set up Totem, which is a group for young LGBTQI people up to the age of 25 and meets twice a month. The Federation also has a school program in place, where LGBTQI people are trained to hold workshops in schools, in an effort to tackle anti-LGBTQI attitudes.
National trans organisation TGNS provides regular meetings for trans youth over 13 and also offers counseling and information to trans youth of all ages, and their parents. TGNS also supports trans youth in coming out at school, including by offering sensitising lessons, and working with management or teachers to create a safer environment. TGNS also cooperates with universities and departments of education in the individual cantons.
Basel-Landschaft canton has a specific directive in place regarding trans pupils, which grants the recognition of one’s gender identity and allows for a change of name and gender marker, regardless of official changes. The City of Zurich has also published a detailed guidance document on the rights and obligations of schools, trans children and their parents, as well as other children and their parents.
A number of universities have adopted guidelines to recognise the gender identity of trans students on documents and in class, on the basis of self-determination. These include the universities of Luzern, Zurich, and Basel, and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland.
