Mastering the common core of knowledge and competencies

Mastering the common core of knowledge and competencies

The common core of knowledge and competencies introduces what every student must know and master at the end of compulsory schooling (end of 3ème in junior secondary). It represents all the knowledge, competencies, values and necessary attitude for the student to succeed his/her schooling, his/her life as an individual and future citizen. 

Mastering the seven competencies is necessary to obtain the Brevet diploma. Two levels are set during elementary schooling, one at the end of CE1 and one at the end of CE2.
