THE TEACHING, EDUCATION AND ADMINISTRATION SECONDED CONTRACT
(formerly resident position)
Seconded teaching, education and administrative staff are French civil servants who have worked for at least two years in a permanent capacity in France.
They are recruited by the Director of the AEFE on the recommendation of the school heads, after consulting the local joint consultative committees (CCPL). If the home administration agrees to the secondment, the employee is then seconded to the AEFE, which pays his/her salary, generally for a renewable period of three years.
Seconded teaching, education and administrative posts are mainly for primary and secondary school teachers. In a few rare cases, they may be administrative or school life posts. In its recruitment policy for seconded teaching, education and administrative staff, the AEFE gives priority, in addition to the criteria confirming the quality of the application according to the standards of the French education system, to experience and the capacity for outreach, openness and dialogue in a foreign environment that such a mission requires.
