Since 2013, the ESPE, which has now become the Inspé, has been welcoming trainee civil servants who have won a competitive examination for the recruitment of teachers or education personnel holding a Master's degree in Education (MEEF) and offers them a suitable work-linked training programme. These trainee civil servants are on placement for one half of their teaching service in a school (two and a half days per week) and on training at university for the other half.
As an extension of their MEEF master's degree, and in the possible ways of adapting their training, we would like to be able to offer these trainee civil servants the possibility of developing a project linked to educational research.
The challenge is, of course, to acculturate primary and secondary school teachers to research. It is to be expected that a dynamic based on an approach to the scientific world can be expected to continue and facilitate the professional development of teachers whose relationship to knowledge should not be dogmatic.
The orientations of the SFERE-Provence research federation provide the opportunity to forge ever closer links between laboratories, research units and schools, at primary or secondary level.
The projects on which you can engage these young colleagues from the National Education are very open and the diversity of your actions is a source of richness. You can involve them, for example, in research activities, in valorisation and/or dissemination actions or in any other initiative that aims to anchor the training of these young people on comprehensive relations with scientific research at university.
These systems have already been tried and tested several times, but they require imagination to propose original and diversified organizations that are as close as possible to your expectations and work. With this reception of trainee civil servants, the aim is to forge links with school teaching teams, their educational community (the ÉSPÉ develops many relationships with the associative fabric of the School's partners) and their social and cultural environment.
I would be grateful if you could let us know before 04 September of your interest in contributing to this reception by returning the attached form to Patrice BONNET, Chargé de Mission (firstname.lastname@example.org); he will contact you to define the modalities of reception for trainee civil servants interested in this type of organisation of their training course.
Yours sincerely, Dear Colleagues, my best regards
