    I worked at Ministère de l'Éducation nationale full-time

    Pros

    Holidays, enthusiastic students (depends on the groups you get), relative creativity that can be put into designing your own class materials

    Cons

    Time and emotionally consuming, stern out-of-date hierarchy, constant new reforms that solve very little problems (and sometimes actually make things worse), great variations from one school to another depending on the trust between the principal and the teachers

    Advice to Management

    Give more support to teachers, listen to them as they are the ones who are on the battlefield and should be consulted first, SUPPORT and CONSULTATION are the keywords.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Job stability, the extra pay if you don't work in the same town as where you live, the extra pay if you work in a REP or REP + area.

    Cons

    Too much pressure, too much administration work, parents always on your back, no support from the inspection. No concrete advice offered to help improve.

    Advice to Management

    Don't say to student teachers "I don't know what to tell you", it does not help at all, only frustrates


  4. "Maitre de Langues"

    Pros

    Reliable monthly salary is great!

    Cons

    French administration is still an enigma! Know your rights & entitlements as a Md L or Lecteur!

    Advice to Management

    Read the French decree and article on Working conditions and teaching load for these positions.

    Pros

    Employment Security, Reasonable quantity of work, no heavy hierarchy

    Cons

    No or almost no promotion, low salary without any perspective of progress. No equity for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    There is no equity in the managment. It's the reign of courtesans and secret. The whole system of french university must be restructured ... without mercy !

    I worked at Ministère de l'Éducation nationale part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Workload is extremely light and very manageable. If you find yourself with too much classroom responsibility or classes, just bring up your contract, which states you can teach a maximum of 16 teaching hours per week, which are all supposed to be supervised by a full-time teacher. You get French health insurance, which is great and can also apply for the CAF, which is a housing subsidy because your salary is so low. Lots of vacation days and ability to travel around France and all of Europe. Plus, you get to live in France!

    Cons

    If you don't like schoolkids, this job is not for you. Can feel a bit meaningless at times, since the kids aren't very invested and schools are not always sure how to use a native English speaker effectively. Most posts are also in small towns, which can be isolating and give you very few options for a social life, although small towns are a plus for improving your French. A placement in a big city will mean you need to get a second job or start private tutoring to be able to afford rent.

    Advice to Management

    Have more specific ways to use English Teaching Assistants and make sure that they are being used effectively! They're a valuable resource; don't let them go to waste.

    Great gap year idea with decent pay (as long as you're in the provinces and not Paris) for any recent grad looking to travel, learn French, and capture some of that joie de vivre in Europe.

    Cons

    Responsibilities vary greatly by school
