The purpose of this paper is defining what 'transversal training' represents in secondary teachers' training in France. It attempts at the same time to assess critically the place it holds in the framework of the two years of training that university institutes for teacher training provide for young teachers.
Noting the small place occupied by transversal training, this paper questions its possible fate within the framework of current reforms.
