It goes without saying that IH Rome is located in what is arguably the most beautiful and historic of Europe’s capital cities. Many of the city’s marvels lie within easy walking distance of the school and just a 10-minute walk down Via Labicana will take you to the Colosseum and to the adjacent Forums.


About the school and city

In early March 2020, we found ourselves in lockdown here in Italy, with two CELTA courses in progress and many candidates enrolled on future courses. We didn’t want our candidates’ future plans to be delayed indefinitely by waiting for life to go back to “normal”. We discussed our options, and, once we received agreement from Cambridge Assessment English, moved all courses online.


IH Rome has been successfully training teachers for over 40 years and our team of six resident trainers have worked in a variety of contexts throughout the world.

Since March 2020, we have completed two CELTA courses online that were in progress when lockdown started, five fully-online courses, and at the time of writing (September 2020), have two fully-online courses in progress. We also have three more fully-online courses scheduled before the end of 2020. It’s been, and continues to be, a busy year!

We are confident that we deliver a great product with an online class - see our student testimonials below! But if you'd prefer to apply for a face to face course, we look forward to welcoming you back to Rome soon!

IH Rome Accademia Britannica is right in the heart of Rome, close to the Colosseum, San Giovanni in Laterano and the main railway station (Stazione Termini). If you are interested in exploring Rome, this is a great base. 

We started teaching English to local adults and children more than 50 years ago. Our teacher training centre was founded more than 30 years ago mainly to cater to the needs of the local schools. It expanded to become the largest in Italy, in response to the growing demand for training courses in both State schools and private institutions.

Some members of staff have been with the team nearly all that time! Norman, Giovanni, Ian and the whole team, still enjoy welcoming all their english and teacher training students into the school. 

Over the years we have helped more than three thousand candidates from all over the world to start their careers in English teaching both in Italy and abroad. And we are looking forward to the next three thousand!
