30. The probationary period begins on the signing of a teaching contract consisting of at least 200 hours taught over 12 consecutive months. If the initial contract does not cover all the hours required to complete the probationary period, the employer must be able to ensure that a sufficient number of similar contracts will be entered into within a reasonable time.
As soon as the initial contract begins, the teacher trainee and a person assigned by the employer to supervise the probationary period must agree on the specific terms of the probationary period that are to guide supervision of the teaching and evaluation of the competence and professional qualifications to be verified by the probationary period.
Instruction provided in a situation described in the second paragraph of section 23 of the Education Act (chapter I-13.3) is not considered for the purposes of calculating the number of hours of teaching in the probationary period required by section 28. The teacher trainee may as well offer services to another employer while not bound by a contract in order to complete the required number of hours of teaching. Such a contract must, however, be entered into for fewer than 200 hours. An applicant may also enter into such contracts before beginning the required probationary period.
