MEEF - General Education in Vocational High Schools

This program is aimed at careers in the professional high school based on bivalence in general subjects (literature-history and geography, Spanish-literature and English-literature). It is primarily aimed at the professions of vocational high school teacher. We must add the professions where knowledge of the conditions and uses of professional teaching is required or can serve as a basis for complementary professional developments, such as the training of adults
(languages and literature in particular). The versatility of the training allows for reorientations based on the general culture thus acquired.

MEEF - Economics and Management of Organizations

The preparation of public competitive examinations and the training of future teachers of economics and management occupy a central place in the master's program. The competitive examinations prepared in the second year of the Master's program are those for the CAPET and CAPLP external economics and management examinations, in the options below.

Each academic year, the opening of options within the program depends on whether or not they are
open and on the number of students enrolled in the program.
As a result, part of the program is organized by field of study (technological high school / vocational high school) and/or by option.

MEEF - Engineering sciences for secondary schools and industrial techniques for vocational schools

This course aims to prepare students for careers in secondary education with two main objectives.
The first is to specialize in the technology taught in secondary schools, the engineering sciences taught in general and technological high schools, and also the industrial sciences and techniques and sustainable development (STI 2D). The lessons concern the disciplinary fields such as mechanics, electronics, civil engineering, automatisms, digital computing... seen as resources for the analysis of multi-technological systems. The fields of educational sciences are also studied in depth: the educational system, didactics, pedagogy, programs and reference systems, etc. This part of the course aims to prepare students for the four options of the "CAPET Industrial Engineering Sciences", which is intended for the recruitment of teachers of these specialties in junior high schools, high schools, and even some BTS. It is also intended for teachers in post or on contract who wish to train for a qualification to teach in secondary schools and/or high schools.
The second objective, relating to vocational high schools, specializes future workshop teachers in preparing students for vocational education in the fields of Industrial Sciences and Techniques (STI) (mechanical, electrical, civil engineering, etc.). In addition to the traditional contributions in the fields of Industrial Science and Technology, which are essential for these courses, this master's program includes important contributions in educational science, didactics, official reference documents and training for course preparation. It is understood that aspects related to oral and written communication, necessary for the teaching profession, will also be addressed.
In both cases, preparation for the competitive examinations remains an essential objective, with, in the longer term, the goal of preparing professional and reflective teachers, providing quality teaching. An approach to research initiation seen as learning through research is also part of the teaching of this master.

MEEF - Science and techniques of physical activities and sports - Physical and Sports Education

This training is part of the reform of teacher training and the integration, in masters programs, of preparation for the competitive examination for teacher recruitment and the teaching profession. At the end of the training, students should have acquired the fundamental disciplinary or multidisciplinary knowledge necessary for teaching the subject at the different levels of the school system.
