About the teacher training centre

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

The IH Online Teacher Training Institute (OTTI) is the teacher training wing of International House World Organisation. We provide online professional development courses for EFL teachers around 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. 

Learning online gives you the flexibility to set your own study hours and save money on travel and accommodation.

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. You are definitely not studying alone, and this tutor and peer support is what our trainees say they like most about our courses. 

The IH Teacher Training Certificate

If you are thinking of developing your career into teacher training, or want to help your own teachers develop, this course could be perfect for you.

The aim of this course is to prepare you for the main issues and techniques involved in teacher training. These include observing an initial teacher training course or assisting on an in-service teacher development course.

There are 9 modules on this course:

  • Introduction to the Course and Teacher Development
  • The Skills of a Teacher Trainer
  • Understanding the Trainee
  • Observation Process 
  • Managing Feedback
  • Supporting the Trainee / Teacher
  • Developing Training Sessions
  • An Introduction to Reflective Practice
  • The Assessment Process

There are ten weeks of tutor led input on this course. After this you will have two weeks to complete and submit your portfolio of work ready for assessment.
