Enka Schools, Istanbul has agreed with the University of Nottingham to host the University's Post Graduate Certificate of Education International [PGCEi] programme. The general aim of the PGCEi is to improve practice by building new ideas and strategies which are tested out by PGCEi students in their own classrooms.This is an exciting opportunity for teachers, teaching and learning assistants, and other staff who have perhaps come into teaching through the CELTA route and/or who wish to gain a teaching qualification.

The course comprises a face-to-face introductory event followed by online learning with expert tutor support. Tuition is provided by qualified staff from the University of Nottingham. The PGCEi course runs for a year and is mostly completed online. However, at the very start of the course there is a short face-to-face introduction to and overview of the programme. This introductory four day Face to Face workshop will be hosted at our school in Istinye, Istanbul from Protected content 2014.
