Emmanuel Macron meets with students from the Bernard-Palissy vocational school in Saintes, Charente-Maritime, on May 4, 2023.

The salary measures for teachers detailed by the government at the end of April will not have the same contours for the 72,000 teachers who teach in vocational high schools. “Students in the vocational high school have more difficulties than elsewhere at the start, and their care requires tailor-made (…) We must recognize the commitment of teachers to meet these challenges”said Thursday, May 4 the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, traveling to Saintes (Charente-Maritime) to announce the reform of the vocational school.
