4.
The commitment to PO is considerable both in and out of the classroom while in the partner country.
In addition to long teaching days, you will be expected to participate in activities arranged by the
partner organization. These could include social events as well as meetings with the Ministry of
Education representatives, the Executive of the partner organization, etc.
5.
Because of the nature of the Project, participants are not allowed to be accompanied by friends or
family during the Orientation program or during the placement overseas.
6.
Participants must accept that a project may be cancelled at the last minute due to unforeseen
circumstances. In the event of cancellation, CTF cannot guarantee placement on another team.
7.
For budgetary and safety reasons, it is the usual practice that PO participants share accommodation
with one or more colleagues.
8.
Participants are not permitted to drive a motorized vehicle during their stay abroad. The teachers’
organization overseas is usually responsible for providing transportation in connection with the
Project. Other necessary transportation will be arranged by the Team Leader.
9.
There is considerable benefit to sharing PO experiences upon return to Canada. Participants are
encouraged to speak at meetings of their teacher organization, community groups and school, and to
participate in appropriate consultations and other events. Participants are also encouraged to write
articles about their experiences and submit them for publication wherever possible.
10. PO operates in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and, occasionally, elsewhere. Participants must be
prepared to be assigned to any location where there is a CTF Project.

members work together to prepare workshop materials (via the internet and teleconferences),
communicate and collaborate with their assigned co-tutor, conduct research on their country of
assignment, etc.
12. Participants will be required to send their valid passport to the designated travel agent in order to
secure required visas as early as May. Passports will be returned during the Orientation Program,
prior to departure for country of assignment.

(Une entreprise commune de la Fédération canadienne des enseignantes et des enseignants et de ses
organisations Membres pour soutenir les projets de perfectionnement professionnel des organisations
partenaires d’outre-mer)
Nous vous signalons que le formulaire de demande de participation comporte deux parties. Une copie de la
partie A, qui renferme des renseignements généraux et relatifs aux antécédents scolaires et à l’expérience
professionnelle, sera envoyée à l’organisation partenaire d’outre-mer.
La partie B contient des renseignements d’ordre plus personnel, auxquels seuls le Comité national de
sélection, votre chef d’équipe et le personnel du Programme international de la FCE auront accès.
VEUILLEZ COMMUNIQUER AVEC VOTRE ORGANISATION MEMBRE OU CONSULTER SON SITE
WEB POUR OBTENIR DES RENSEIGNEMENTS SUR LA PRÉSENTATION D’UNE DEMANDE, LES
EXIGENCES SUPPLÉMENTAIRES ET LA DATE LIMITE DE PRÉSENTATION DE LA DEMANDE DE
PARTICIPATION AU PROJET OUTRE-MER (PO).
Nous vous prions de lire les notes qui suivent avant de poser votre candidature :
1.
Les exigences suivantes s’appliquent à toute personne qui fait une demande au PO :
 Adhérer à une organisation provinciale ou territoriale de la profession enseignante qui appuie le
PO;
 être titulaire d’un certificat d’aptitude pédagogique reconnu;
 posséder au moins cinq années d’expérience de l’enseignement au Canada avant le début de
l’affectation outre-mer;
 être de citoyenneté canadienne;
 jouir d’une excellente santé et pouvoir travailler dans les conditions propres aux pays en
développement;
 faire preuve de souplesse, d’un bon jugement et d’une forte volonté de faire passer les besoins
de l’équipe et du programme avant ses besoins personnels;
 avoir, au moment de la présentation de la demande, un passeport canadien qui sera valide
pendant au moins six mois après la fin de l’affectation outre-mer (une preuve qu’une demande
de passeport a été faite sera acceptée).
2.
Les frais de déplacement et de séjour des bénévoles sont couverts par les contributions de la
Fédération canadienne des enseignantes et des enseignants et de ses organisations Membres (les
organisations provinciales et territoriales de l’enseignement).
3.
La FCE prendra les arrangements de voyage à destination du pays partenaire conformément aux
lignes directrices établies par les fidéicommissaires du Fonds en fiducie de la FCE, qui prévoient ce
qui suit : « QUE des efforts soient faits pour choisir les tarifs aériens les moins chers possible pour les
voyages qui sont effectués dans le cadre du PO et qui sont conformes aux objectifs de ce
programme. » Par conséquent, la FCE choisira l’itinéraire le plus direct et le plus économique, et
achètera, autant que possible, des billets à tarif excursion aux conditions qui s’appliquent à ces billets.

Past President/Président sortant Paul Taillefer
Vice-Presidents/Vice-président(e)s Katherine Mackwood, Mark Ramsankar, Heather Smith, Maureen Weinberger
4.
L’engagement envers le PO est considérable, tant à l’intérieur qu’à l’extérieur de la classe, tout au
long du séjour dans le pays partenaire. Outre de longues journées d’enseignement, vous devrez
participer à des activités arrangées par l’organisation partenaire, notamment des activités sociales
ainsi que des réunions avec des personnes représentant le ministère de l’Éducation et avec le
Comité exécutif de l’organisation partenaire.
5.
Vu la nature du PO, les bénévoles n’ont pas le droit d’être accompagnés de membres de leur famille
ou d’amis ni au cours du stage d’orientation ni pendant l’affectation outre-mer.
6.
Les bénévoles doivent accepter qu’un projet puisse être annulé à la dernière minute en raison de
circonstances imprévues. En cas d’annulation, la FCE ne peut pas garantir le placement au sein
d’une autre équipe.
7.
Pour des raisons de budget et de sécurité, les bénévoles du PO partagent normalement un
logement avec un ou plusieurs collègues.
8.
Il est défendu aux bénévoles de conduire des véhicules automobiles pendant leur séjour à
l’étranger. Il appartient d’ordinaire à l’organisation d’accueil de fournir le transport se rattachant au
programme. Votre chef d’équipe arrangera tout autre transport nécessaire.
9.
Il est très profitable de communiquer les expériences vécues dans le cadre du PO une fois de retour
au Canada. Nous encourageons les bénévoles à parler de leurs expériences à des réunions de leur
organisation de l’enseignement, à des groupes communautaires et à l’école, et à participer à des
consultations et à d’autres activités pertinentes. Nous les prions également de rédiger des articles
au sujet de leurs expériences et de les faire paraitre dans des publications chaque fois qu’ils le
peuvent.
10. Le PO envoie des équipes en Afrique, en Asie, aux Caraïbes et, occasionnellement, ailleurs. Les
bénévoles doivent être disposés à accepter une affectation à n’importe quel endroit où un
programme de la FCE est offert.
11. La FCE n’est habituellement pas en mesure de confirmer les dates des programmes avant la
formation des équipes. Les programmes se déroulent normalement en juillet et en aout; toutefois,
les tâches relatives au PO débutent en février. Dès ce mois, les membres des équipes travaillent
ensemble à préparer les documents des ateliers (au moyen d’Internet et de téléconférences),
communiquent et collaborent avec la coïnstructrice ou le coïnstructeur qui leur a été assigné,
effectuent des recherches sur le pays d’affectation, et ainsi de suite.
12. Dès le mois de mai, les bénévoles devront faire parvenir leur passeport valide à l’agence de voyage
désignée afin qu’elle puisse se procurer les visas requis. Les passeports seront retournés aux
bénévoles pendant le stage d’orientation, avant le départ à destination du pays d’affectation.
