Do you have a Master’s degree in education, an AESS or a Master’s degree in didactics?  Would you like to train future teachers?   

Our Advanced Master’s degree in Teacher Training is designed to give you the skills you need to work in Higher Education.  It is open to both practising teachers and students who wish to continue their studies.

The course is run on an evening and weekend schedule in Charleroi, allowing you to combine work and study.  It can be taken over one year or as a two-year part-time course (conditions for part-time courses to be agreed with the secretariat).

Holders of this Advanced Master’s degree will automatically be recognised as holders of the CAPAES in Hautes Écoles and in Enseignement Supérieur de Promotion Sociale, in accordance with the decree of 17th July 2002.

Access conditions

You can access the MSFE if:

  • You have a Master’s degree in Education
  • You have a Master’s degree specialised in didactics (FIE, section 4)
  • You have a disciplinary Master’s degree and an AESS (FIE, section 5)

Unlike the CAPAES, you do not need to be working to take the course.

This course is aimed at (future) teachers in Hautes Ecoles and Ecoles Supérieures des Arts, in charge of courses related to didactics, pedagogy and training in and through practice.

Holders of a doctorate in psychological and educational sciences or a doctorate in the field of “Teaching” or a doctorate in didactics in another field of study are exempt from the Advanced Master’s degree in Teacher Training.

Program and structure

The course comprises six units divided into four main themes:

  • Teacher training – training and practise (2UE)
  • Professionalisation of future teachers
  • Didactics (2 UE)
  • Specificity of adult education

Courses are organised face-to-face and online.

Teaching profile

The programme description defines the expected learning outcomes, i.e. what the student should know, understand and be able to achieve by the end of a learning activity, a teaching unit or a study cycle (Bachelor's, Master's, etc.). Learning outcomes are defined in terms of knowledge, expertise and soft skills.

In accordance with article 51 of the decree of 7th February 2019 defining initial teacher training, by the end of the course you will have mastered the following skills:

  • Mastery of the didactics of the subject(s) concerned or of the didactics applied to these subjects;
  • Knowledge and understanding of the training environments in which you will be working and those in which your future students will be working;
  • The ability to support people in vocational training situations;
  • Mastery of the specificities of teaching adults, particularly young adults;
  • The ability to participate in the design and implementation of teacher training programmes;
  • The ability to observe, analyse and evaluate elements of professional teaching practice with a view to advising and helping to readjust these practices, drawing in particular on the results of scientific research in education, in the didactics of the subjects to be taught, in psychology, in the sociology of education and in gender studies, concerning in particular cultural diversity, socio-economic inequalities and gender;
  • The ability to conduct, individually and with peers, a critical and rigorous analysis of your own practices and their impact on students and student success, in particular by drawing on various disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, in order to regulate your teaching with a view to effectiveness and equity. All of these objectives are part of an epistemological distancing and a systemic vision.
