Induction courses

Each académie organises its own induction course for all language assistants. This course is designed to inform assistants about  the administrative procedures that they will have to follow once they arrive in France. They will also receive pedagogical training to help get ready for their new position as language assistants. It is also an opportunity to meet other assistants from their académie.

The induction courses usually take place during the first week of October. The académies will provide assistants with all the necessary information before their arrival in France.
