About the CFER network

How does a CFER work ?

Academically

Schools that decide to offer the CFER program pledge to apply a flexible pedagogy, using a global task structure and to using the tools prescribed by the CFER Network.

CFERs also pledge to actively participle in Network activities

Global Task

A group of teachers take over the responsibility for the global training and education of the entire group of students.  

  • Every member of the team represents an equal part of The CFER. Everyone must be able to express themselves freely.
  • The absence of individual schedules allow the teachers to control, as much as possible, the various aspects of the CFER’s environment (groups composition, task and time sharing, space organisation).
  • Teachers are to respect the MELS’s program.
