Kharchenko T. G. The Development and Supervision of the Student’s Individual Project in the Modern Pre-professional Teacher Training in France: Practical Aspect

Kharchenko T. G. Candidate of Pedagogical Sciences, Associate Professor, Luhansk Taras Shevchenko National University.

The article reviews the social and economical changes that took place in the French society at the end of the 20th – beginning of the 21st Centuries and affected the composition of the student populations in the higher educational establishments, which started to enroll students from previously under served social groups and new countries. Higher educational establishments are yet to adapt to these social and demographic changes. For this reason, theorists and experts of teacher training in France have turned to the development of individualized educational programs. According to scholars, the competent supervision of students’ independent learning will yielded better results in terms of mastering necessary skills by them, as well as developing and realizing their individual professional project.
It has been established on the basis of French scholarly pedagogical sources that one of the first forms of the individualized education that a prospective teacher faces is the “Development and supervision of student’s individual project”, which is realized in the modern pre-professional teacher training in France. This procedure is aimed to support each student academic success, as well as to help the student to become an active member of his/her professional project. It is realized in the first term of an academic year during such module courses as “Development of the individual project”, “Super vision of the individual project”, “Professional student’s project”.

Key words: individual project, pre-professional teacher training, professional project.
