The National Institute of Education (NIE) is an institute of the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.
NIE provides all levels of teacher education, from initial teacher education programmes to professional development programmes for in-service teachers and executive leadership programmes for Principals, Departmental Heads and other school leaders. NIE also administers postgraduate programmes that lead to the award of higher degrees in Arts, Education, Physical Education and Science. In addition, NIE also offers part-time programmes that make it possible for current primary level teachers the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Education degree.
Expanding her wings beyond local shores, NIE is also lauded for programmes such as Management and Leadership in Schools (MLS) and Leaders in Education (International) (LEPI) by overseas education leaders. In February 2012, top academics from NIE and USA’s Teachers College, Columbia University, have jointly collaborated in a Master of Arts in Leadership and Educational Change programme focused on moulding candidates from the Asia-Pacific region and beyond into global leaders in education.
NIE, Singapore is a founding member and inaugural chair of the International Alliance of Leading Education Institutes (IALEI), which was first established with seven other world-leading education institutions in August 2007. Currently, the IALEI has seen an inclusion of two new members to the think tank that will influence the education sector globally. Together, they will draw expertise and research in education to generate ideas, identify trends and serve as a collective voice on important educational matters and thus influence policies and practice in education.
The National Institute of Education, Singapore is one of the leading teacher preparation institutions in the world. NIE collaborates with MOE and its schools to transform the teacher preparation system and to ensure it continues to meet changing needs of the education system. NIE also plays an important role in providing education research and research based-pedagogical curriculum and direction to the Ministry and its schools. This is all in line with the mission of the Ministry, which is to mould the future of our nation.
