The Department of English is a graduate department which forms a unique constituent in the general structural of the Ecole Normale Supérieure Constantine (ENSC) in terms of its pedagogical makeup, administrative staff, as well as the quality of its students. Dedicated not only to the transmission of knowledge but more particularly to the promotion of education, the department seeks to guarantee high quality training for teachers of English taking into consideration current local and global challenges Algeria is facing.

 The will-be-teachers undertake for 2 years a common core training to strengthen their linguistic competence both in speaking and in writing as well as to enrich their general knowledge and raise their awareness about the English-speaking communities and culture. Starting from the third year of their training, the students-teachers are introduced to subjects that deal with basic issues in pedagogy and teaching.

Like the other departments of the ENSC, the department of English prepares two kinds of teachers, middle school teachers of English and secondary school ones. To complete their theoretical training, students undertake a practical training course during their graduating year, at the end of which a training report is written by trainees.  The course which involves three main phases- observation, alternate and full-time – aims at allowing students to put into practice the theoretical knowledge they have been constructing for four or five years and initiating them to the requirements of the teaching / learning process.

Moreover, the department initiates its students to the fundamental conditions and elements of research making in general, and education-based research in particular. To this effect, a research work is prepared by students at the end of their fifth year as a basic requirement for their graduation.

To remain true to its aims, the department has initiated the third millennium with very ambitious projects that would enable it to be at the forefront of teaching and making research in education in Algeria, building on solid foundations and moving into those new areas of education that will be crucial to the success of knowledge-based Algerian society.
