Role and skills
The monitoring and regulation of the various training courses set up are ensured by the development councils.
A CPER is attached to an identified training program. Depending on the specific configurations, this may be a single master's degree or a group of courses. The number and composition of the development councils are decided by the director on the proposal of the scientific and pedagogical orientation council and are included in the internal regulations. There are 21 of them.
The purpose of a CPER is to coordinate the implementation of the training plan, to evaluate its execution (in collaboration with the training observatory) and to submit proposals for changes to the scientific and pedagogical orientation council.
It issues advice and recommendations that are forwarded to the various statutory bodies so that they can judge the relevance and feasibility of changes to training plans and their organization.
Each CPER includes in its composition the actors directly concerned by the course to which they are attached, in particular, the teachers and teacher-researchers involved in the course, the heads of the course, representatives of the Aix-Marseille Academy (IA-IPR and/or IEN), organizations or companies directly concerned by the course and students enrolled in the course.
The development councils are composed of a minimum of nine members and a maximum of seventeen members, including the head of the Master's program or his/her representative.
A representation of each of the partners of the program is assured in the composition of the CPER:
- the head of the course(s) and possibly his/her deputies (if applicable Inspé, AMU and/or AU);
- 1 to 5 teachers and/or teacher-researchers involved in the course (with a representation of the components involved);
- 1 to 2 representatives of the Aix-Marseille academy, organizations or companies directly concerned by the training;
- 1 to 2 representatives of the profession;
- 2 to 4 student representatives;
Permanent or occasional guests may be associated with the work of the CPER.
Each CPER is chaired by one of the employer representatives.
When training under the same CPER is organized on several geographical sites, this council may be divided into as many site development sub-councils. The competences of these councils are limited to the local organization of the training; they cannot replace the advanced training council. A provisional calendar of meetings is drawn up at the beginning of the academic year for the coming year.
The invitation to a meeting is sent to each member of the council by the person in charge of the field to which he/she belongs. The agenda is set by the President of the CPER on the proposal of the Head of the department.
Secretariat and minutes
Minutes of each meeting are drawn up by a meeting secretary and validated by the CPER president, the course director and the department director. The minutes are sent to the members of the CPER.
