The University of Nottingham (UoN) in partnership with the TISB Training Academy (TTA), which is part of the TISB and NPS Group of Institutions, launched the Post Graduate Certificate in Education (International) for teacher education today at their campus. A Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) was signed between the two institutions in March 2017 to introduce the PGCEi in India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Mauritius, Nepal and Sri Lanka. The PGCEi by UoN is a global platform to compare teaching approaches across different countries and help teachers in developing a global approach to education. The programme consists of four 15-credit modules and is blended learning, which is a flexible amalgamation of online distance learning as well as face-to-face sessions. The web based virtual learning environment (VLE) enables teachers from tier I and II cities to access a high quality teaching qualification. The course starts in December 2017 and takes eight months to a year to complete. The 60 credits earned from the PGCEi can be carried forward into a MA in Education in preparation for PhD study.
