The Mathurin Cordier Network
in France

With more than thirty member schools or associations, the Mathurin Cordier Network in France has a unique history and representative strength in France.

Born from the AESPEF, the Association of French-speaking Protestant Evangelical School Establishments, it is dedicated specifically to France and is today an important network in the field of Christian education.

The Mathurin Cordier France Network was created in 2017 to bring together the professionals of Protestant Christian education, active on French territory, who recognize themselves in its missions and values. It is a relay of the AESPEF, an association with an international scope of action, which included in particular the French-speaking networks, whether they are in France, Switzerland, Belgium or on the African continent.

In line with regulatory, educational and professional requirements, the network formulates proposals and implements concrete actions for a qualitative evolution in its sector of activities.

Among its various activities, it focuses in particular on subjects relating to the quality of teaching and pedagogy, but also information, relationships with national authorities, economic development, and the defence of the interests of those involved in school, university and vocational training.

It also encourages in-depth, multidisciplinary reflection to facilitate regular self-evaluation and adaptation, with a view to the relevance of our educational offer in today's society.

Mission, Vision and Values
