CEI runs three terms a year (from Ramadhan to Ramadhan), where each term consists of approximately 12 weeks. In each term, CEI holds a mid term activity session, an end of term examination and a final parent’s consultation session where parents have the opportunity to review test results and speak with the individual teachers to discuss the progress of their child and enrol their children into the following term.
The classes are divided into children of similar age and or academic ability where each class consists of a maximum of 20 children. Many sessions are smaller in number which allows the children to benefit from close contact tutoring. Each lesson is divided into 35 minute sessions for each of the three subjects; Mathematics, English and Islamic Studies.
Apart from traditional classroom based learning, CEI has recently introduced monthly workshop sessions. These are project driven and aim to equip students in their ability to work with others as part of a team, present ideas verbally, through written articles and digital media.
