Performance Management in the French System of Secondary-Teacher Training
International Review of Education, v51 n1 p3-21 Jan 2005
The present study focuses on performance analysis and performance management in teacher training in France. After a brief summary of the French system of secondary-teacher training, determinants affecting performance are analyzed. The analysis shows that three determinants--the number of external competitors, the size of a department and the number of posts to be filled by recruitment examinations--are crucial to the performance of a training department. The analysis reveals, however, that although a department's performance may be related to its size, efficiency and inefficiency limits have to be taken into account in growth strategies.
