School Overview

School Description

ITI is an internationally recognised Cambridge English teacher training centre and the only Cambridge English approved centre for both the CELTA, ICELT and Delta courses in Turkey. We've successfully trained thousands of EFL teachers since we first began running courses in Istanbul in 1987. We have part-time, full-time and on-line options.

Accommodation

A variety of accommodation options are available, upon request

Location Overview

Istanbul is a major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Its Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled here. In the Sultanahmet district, the open-air, Roman-era Hippodrome was for centuries the site of chariot races, and Egyptian obelisks also remain. The iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century dome and rare Christian mosaics.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


Overall, I highly enjoyed the course despite the intensity! ITI staff were overall very friendly and were willing to help whenever needed. Furthermore, the library and classrooms were well equipped with all the facilities one may need. It was comfortable to work and teach in the ITI building, which is well located near many restaurants, cafes and other amenities. No complaints about the course itself although some more experienced teachers were unhappy that they did not get a higher grade. Most of the staff and students are Iranian, I guess if one from Iran plans to do the course this is the place to do it.

, CELTA student,

Thanks to all tutors.

, Workshops - MOTIVATING LEARNERS TO WRITE CREATIVELY student,

It was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. The course was really practical and useful, especially the teaching practices where you could put what you have learnt into practice while being observed by experienced tutors who are supportive and give you constructive feedback and try to put you on the right path of teaching. I learnt about my strengths and weaknesses in teaching and received constructive feedback from my tutors and peers, who also gave me a deeper insight into teaching and corrected my mindset towards teaching.I would like to thank all the staff and tutors especially Liz, Ramy and Tyler.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a splendid informative experience. I loved it& have learned a lot more than I expected, especially from the TPs.

, CELTA Online student,

It was the best experience ever! I will always remember it as useful, positive, and very productive. It was one of the right decisions to apply for the course, but it was even a better thing to come to ITI, to meet the instructors, participants and indulge yourself into the academic world. Thanks, ITI! You exceeded our expectations and are truly amazing!

, CELTA Online student,

it was a rewarding experience and I do recommend it to those teachers who wan to learn more and undoubtedly those preliminary standards that teachers are presented by the course is a must for every teacher to know.

, CELTA Online student,

I got a lot out of the course,not only informative but also fulfilling the course was that immediately after finishing Celta I enrolled for another course.

, CELTA Online student,

I loved the course in spite of it being extremely intensive. The only thing I would like to recommend is that maybe there should be more time for organizational questions and details, like how many assignments there are, their deadlines and details as well. There was the schedule and the only point we did discuss was simple reviewing it (like, have you checked the schedule?) Not going through it in details added a huge amount of stress afterwards as we didn't know what was coming next. During the course there was almost no time to discuss the inputs and lesson plans, not to mention discussing the schedule in general. Thank you

, CELTA student,

It was a practical and intensive experience of learning new approaches and techniques in teaching. I earned a lot and had great feelings to have chance of being part of it.

, CELTA student,

Before the course I was a bit scared and nervous and not even sure I had taken the right decision - because of all the scary stories about CELTA I had heard from colleagues and read online. But the second I stepped at ITI I felt fantastic. Yes, the course is super intensive and demanding, but all the support, smiles, jokes and just overall friendly atmosphere made it all so much easier and more enjoyable. And the most important thing is that I've learnt so much in this course. I can't be happier I decided to take CELTA at ITI. :)

, CELTA student,

There are so many outstanding points about ITI that it’s hard to single out the top , but I’ll try ! Above all , the tutors were extremely patient, kind and insightful .. even tutors who did not have me directly were willing to advise and assist... they are friendly, approachable and highly skilled . Watching them teach lessons, you can see that practice what they preach regarding technique and professionalism. The administrative staff as well were always friendly and helpful .. in every way, they ensured that all was in place for us to have a successful course.The facilities were comfortable and adequate for our needs , within reason. The CELTA itself is very demanding on your focus and your time , but ITI’s coaching and support gets you to the finish line .Please be advised though, that it is up to you to run the race ! I definitely will be returning to ITI for future professional development courses and will continue to hold the time spent and the facility in high esteem.

, CELTA student,

Experienced, professional tutors who offer their guidance and assistance every step of the way. The online platform is easy to use and very convenient. Overall, a very positive experience

, DELTA Module 2 student,

I found the course a bit challenging, but that was mainly from a time management perspective considering it was done online. The constant communication between tutors and trainers on the forums was a huge help.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

The entire experience was a very positive one. I felt that all staff members were always available and doing their utmost to help in anyway possible. A very welcoming place. The course itself and the tutors were very insightful. I am certainly a much better teacher, now.

, CELTA student,

Great value course, with clear deadlines and feedback and someone always on hand for questions. Definitely recommended.

, DELTA All Modules student,

The best recommendation is that I am now going to have Delta module 2 with you. I hope to keep my positive impression after this course, too. Many thanks for all your effort until now!

, DELTA Module 2 student,

Very good location, Excellent teaching/learning environment, Experienced & encouraging teacher trainers

, DELTA Module 2 student,

It was an amazing experience ;I gained a lot of new information as it really expanded my knowledge and enriched my background as an English teacher.Moreover,I would like to take the next step and do module two soon.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It is the best online course I've ever taken. The tutors were of great help. You miss literally nothing even if you do not attend F2F sessions.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

Top-notch education that challenges your brain and makes your grow as a teacher! Given information is valuable: I didn`t get the same scope in 5 years of university.

, CELTA Online student,

Non stop timely support from amazing tutors (Sally has been absolutely incredible at answering everyones questions on the forum in such depth....amazing).

, DELTA Module 3 student,

The comments are always fast and helpful in the forums, and the feedback was very constructive. I would recommend ITI to others.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

The course was amazing. I enjoyed my experience with the online CELTA course. Tutors are very helpful and responsive and in a short amount of time I was able to learn a lot and I could clearly see my improvement. I absolutely recommend taking CELTA, especially from ITI.

, CELTA Online student,

Great experience with professional people

, Short Courses - Professional Development Course Design student,

It was a very enriching experience. I had the opportunity to meet and work with highly experienced and competent tutors who helped me to improve my teaching skills.

, CELTA Online student,

GOOD

, DELTA Module 1 student,

Tutors were lovely, kind and motivating and they gave constructive feedback that I had no problems to follow. The forum was very useful when I needed help with very good recommendations/suggestions. The only thing that was difficult to follow at times was the explanations on the moodle of how to structure each part. The information was too dense and confusing.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

That was the best experience I've ever had. I do advice everyone to apply for the CELTA or any other cetificate. We had the best tutors, they supported us in every single step taken. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

, CELTA student,

In terms of tutors and the materials provided on Moodle and in the sessions, I think DELTA Module 1 was nice and smooth module. I liked the way how tutors tried to do their best to motivate the candidates throughout the course face to face or online. I think there should be more Mock exams and the duration of the course should be longer so that the last 4 weeks can be spent with Mock exams at ITI. Only 1 Mock exam in the last 2 weeks was not enough to internalize the procedure of the exam.

, Short Courses - ESP student,

I loved the experience, the tutors and my classmates

, DELTA Module 1 student,

The intensity and informative value were great. There wasa place for subjectiveness though. I believe that sometimes tutors need to be more objective and strict about their feedbacks.
