Press Release - Six institutions in the Université du Québec network are receiving nearly $4.8 million in funding from the Ministère de l'Enseignement Supérieur for 11 innovative education projects.

The projects, selected through a call for projects, had to respond to the government's priority of promoting success at all levels by improving and diversifying the supply of teacher training. They should also contribute to the enhancement of the teaching profession and respond to current educational issues.

The issues targeted in the 11 network projects are:

  • the development of new differentiated training paths giving access to the profession for people from different backgrounds;
  • the development, in partnership with schools, of continuing education programs that meet the needs of teachers;
  • the adaptation of educational and pedagogical practices to the growing diversity of people and needs;
  • Improving practical teacher education;
  • support for student retention and success in teacher education programs;
  • the integration of education for sustainable development or climate change education into the curriculum.
