Professional integration is a transitional, dynamic, and non-linear process of integration into the profession ; it is considered a crucial and sometimes critical phase in a teacher’s professional development. Its duration varies, with research generally indicating a time frame of five to seven school years, depending on individual characteristics and the integration context.
The Quebec Ministry of Education has entrusted the National Carrefour for Professional Integration in Teaching (CNIPE) with the mission of fostering the successful integration of teachers at the beginning of their careers and contributing to the development of their professional identity.
Through the Directorate of Training and Tenure of School Personnel, the Quebec Ministry of Education provides financial assistance to enable it to carry out its mission.
With the participation of the Director of Training and Tenure of School Personnel and the individual in charge of teacher integration on the CNIPE Steering Committee, the Ministry ensures that the Action Plan implemented by CNIPE is in line with its orientations and priorities.
The National Carrefour for Professional Integration in Teaching (CNIPE) strives to be the Quebec organization of reference and convergence for all those involved in the professionalization of teaching and teacher integration.
