About the School



The Ecole Normale Supérieure El Katiba Assia Djebar Constantine or ENSC has gained an excellent reputation as a teacher education institution due to the professionalism of its teachers and the attention it endows its students with.


The school is responsible for the education of future teachers, educational development and scientific research.


In recent years, the ENSC has undergone a significant structural and pedagogical change, enrolling 5,089 students in 2020 taught by 223 teachers. Every academic year, it welcomes around 1,500 new university students from 24 wilayas in the Eastern and Southern parts of Algeria. The number of students has significantly increased due the opening of new specialties, namely computer science, physics-chemistry and natural sciences. The acquisition of the new infrastructure located at the Ali Mendjeli campus and the development of laboratories as well as the acquisition of new equipment specific to each specialty has resulted in an increase in the teaching, technical and administrative staff, whose total number has reached 215 employees in 2020. 


The institution educates teachers for the Ministry of National Education (MEN), in the following fields: mathematics, computer science, physics-chemistry, natural sciences, Arabic literature and language, French, English, philosophy and history-geography, for the three educational levels of the national education: Teachers of Secondary Education "PES", Teachers of Middle Education "PEM" and Teachers of Primary Education "PEP".

Numerous seminars and conferences are organized for this purpose to enrich teaching and training activities on the one hand and to collaborate in research projects with other institutions on the other hand.


The diversity of the social and cultural origins of the students has given the ENSC and its departments a socio-cultural richness which has positively influenced the degree of fulfillment and development of the students.
