More than a quarter of future teachers are delayed in their training because of the French, but some of them will finally be granted flexibility in the context of the teacher shortage, as Minister Drainville requested.

Last fall, Le Journal reported that in some universities, 18% of education students had to delay their training because they did not pass the French exam after two years of training.

Passing the certification test in written French for teaching (TECFÉE) is mandatory before the third course of this training, which lasts four years. In case of failure, the student must postpone his internship for one year in order to pass the exam.

This observation is based on figures obtained at the University of Montreal and the University of Quebec Rimouski, the other institutions did not want to send us their data on this matter.

However, this ratio is much higher in reality: 28% of future teachers have a delay in their third internship because they have not passed the TECFÉE, which can represent about 500 students per year according to the provincial compilation among all the issues carried out by ADEREQ; an association bringing together the deans of the educational sciences of Quebec universities.

After three years of study, however, it has dropped to 13%, says its president, Jean Bélanger.

This review also shows that education students voluntarily delay their training, since 16% of them have never experienced their luck in TECFÉE after two years of training and therefore have to postpone their third internship.

“That’s the concern. We don’t need a better understanding of how to get there without doing it first hand,” said Mr. Bélanger.

The latter mentions that about half of the students who begin teacher training give up along the way.


The Journal also learned that ADEREQ has finally given the green light to the flexibility measures that will be implemented in this case for all training courses.

Some will be able to make a third company, even if they have not yet passed the TECFÉE, but only under certain conditions: however, they have failed only one part of the exam and are not having difficulty in other educational courses. Around 150 students must watch these relaxations, ADEREQ estimates.

Passing the French exam will remain unanswered, but students will have until the end of their training to pass the target, put at 70%.

To whom we shall give exceptions, they will not be in great difficulty. If we do not pass the student in the TECFÉE intern, we must know that he has the ability to run his course, while putting the success of TECFÉE on his shoulders, “Joannes Bélanger, who is also the dean of the church.” Faculty of Education at UQAM.

This is the change since in December, the Universities of Quebec initially refused to implement these “exceptional” relaxations, which the Minister of Education Bernard Drainville requested, in order to meet the shortage of teachers in the network school.

In this case, many students have come together to demand flexibility in teaching. Many found it “illogical” to postpone their training for a year, the time to switch to TECFÉE, when they could continue to do supplementary work in schools.
