Programs for Teachers and Prospective Teachers


Teaching in secondary school

A teacher working in the final three years of secondary school must hold the Upper Secondary School  Teaching Certificate or AESS (agrégé de l'enseignement  secondaire supérieur) in order to be eligible for a permanent contract.

Master's programs designed for teaching purposes offer the same courses as the AESS and lead to the same teaching certificate.  Holders of a bachelor's and/or one-year master's degree, among others, can also enrol directly in the AESS program.

This program is organized and coordinated by the CIFEN (Interfaculty Teacher training Centre). See more...
