Teaching in France

Discussion in 'Teaching abroad' started by lamaitresse, Jun 14, 2012.

  1. You need to sit a competitive exam to teach in the French state system. It used to be very difficult to pass, even for French people, but apparently it's getting easier in some shortage subjects. The exam is based on your technical knowledge of your subject, rather than pedagogy, and you have to not only be very good at French but very good at sitting French-style exams as well.
    In international schools, your UK qualification would normally be enough.
  2. What subject do you teach? There are some state schools in France that have international sections which hire American or British certified teachers to teach English and history-geography, and sometimes drama.
