Le nouveau Socle, c’est déjà demain… Comment réussir le pari d'une formation commune, ambitieuse, pluridisciplinaire et préparant au monde de demain?

Au printemps 2019, le tout nouveau « Socle de savoirs et de compétences du tronc commun » (de 2,5 à 15 ans) sera en cours de finalisation et entamera le long cheminement de son approbation. S’en suivront la confection des programmes et la formation des enseignants. La mise en application du Socle débutera en 2020, en principe pour les 5 premières années de la formation commune, de la première année de l’enseignement maternel jusqu’à la deuxième année primaire. Dès 2021, il concernera ensuite une nouvelle année, à chaque rentrée scolaire.
