About the teacher training centre

Do you want an online professional development course, no matter where you are in the world?

We have courses for every stage of a teacher’s career, from soon after your initial qualification to DELTA level and management courses. 

On our courses you can ‘attend’ whenever (and wherever!) is convenient for you. You don't usually have to attend a live chat or webinar at a specific time, although sometimes there are live "meetups" so you have the chance to chat with your tutor and other classmates. 

To help you there is ongoing support from your tutors in online forums and through individual feedback - and you'll probably find your other course participants are really helpful as well. 

Teams and Communication

On this course you will learn about how to manage teams effectively (face-to-face and remotely) and explore issues of organisational communication.

Over six weeks, we will:

  • consider the stages of team formation and team roles, and look at theory and practice of leadership in teams;
  • examine strategies for improving teams which are not working effectively;
  • analyse and explore the main communication issues in your workplace, and look at ways of addressing these;
  • through case studies and discussion, explore and devise best practice for ensuring organisational communication is effective.

The course is assessed through a portfolio

The Teams and Communication course with OTTI

If you complete 5 of the 7 IH Specialist short courses for Managers in an Academic Context, you will be awarded the IHWO Diploma in Academic Management.

If you want to apply for a complete Diploma, 5 x 6-week courses, then you will pay a specially discounted fee of £1,860 for the 5 courses. This fee is not refundable if you don’t complete all 5 courses.

Alternatively, you can pay for each 6-week course separately. After you have taken the first course you will receive a 10% discount on the remaining 4 courses, providing you complete all 5 courses within 12 months.



Good news! If you work in an International House school you will receive a discount, reducing the fee to just £300.


Unfortunately, for both business and individuals located in the UK we have to add 20% VAT. This means you will pay £420, or £360 if you are IH staff.

If you are not based in the UK, you won't be charged this.
