Abstract


AN ADMINISTRATIVE OVERVIEW OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN TURKEY
Emergence of Language teacher training programs in Turkey dates back to 1930s. Since then, these programs have undergone some changes through time in terms of duration, content, quantity and quality etc. While there were 17 ELT departments in Turkey in 1996, it was 57 including state and private universities in 2017. Nearly 33% of the universities had an ELT department in Turkey as of 2017. This study investigated English Language Teacher Training Departments in Turkey from an administrative viewpoint in terms of student quota, teaching staff, student mobility programs, participation of international students, gender distribution and proposed some visions about prospects of this field. This was a qualitative study and document analysis technique was used to collect data about the research. The results of the study suggested that Ministry of National Education Human Resources Department should plan its personnel need for next 10-15 years and coordinate with The Board of Turkish Higher Education to determine the quota for the universities. The quota for each ELT department should be rearranged in accordance with the number of faculties serving full-time at a university. Realistic objectives should be specified between university education and employment rate. Quota for international students should be raised and some opportunities should be created both for faculties and students by developing mutual projects with the ELT departments in other countries.
