get to know us


Our international company name is one of the largest and most well-recognized TESOL Training Institutes in the world.

Despite this, as one of our students, you will never leave our institute feeling like ‘just a number’ – but rather feeling a part of the #iTTiFamily with the knowledge, confidence and most importantly, resources, to be able to land your position as an English teacher abroad and online.

what sets us apart

Catered Practical Experience

Have you decided whether you will be teaching abroad or online yet? Either way, you’ll be confident to do both – since we provide practical experience teaching real English learners face-to-face, as well as using online teaching software. You will complete 3 practicums in total.

Both Full-Time & Part-Time Courses Available

We have a variety of study options for our 120-Hour & 220-Hour TESOL certifications. We offer these courses full-time, part-time and combined so that you can complete your course in a way that suits your lifestyle and needs. Due to the restraints of Covid-19, we have adapted our in-class course experience to an equivalent online course that offers the same experience and certification as having completed your course in-class. This means you can obtain your TESOL certification with us from anywhere around the world!

Qualified & Experienced Tutors

Our global training work has not only given our trainees unforgettable experiences in different countries, but it has also helped our organization develop unmatched expertise of the requirements of different countries.  Over the years, we have successfully developed a network of contacts, schools and recruiters that are ready to serve our trainees when needed.

College-level Program

Our program uses the same teacher training textbooks as acclaimed four-year colleges in the United States and the United Kingdom.  Our course content matches their programs; this makes our TEFL/TESOL certification absolutely compatible with the college level.  This is one of the reasons why our graduates are hired by the most prominent, quality English schools around the world.

Lifetime job support and assistance

Many TEFL and TESOL Institutions pay little-to-no attention to making sure you are truly ready to be employed by an English school abroad or online. In addition to ensuring that you are educated on TESOL theory, have practical experience and are confident to actually teach – we do our absolute best to ensure that you actually get the job.

We pay great attention to “getting the job” during the course period, down to assisting you in CV creation, preparing you for your job interviews and demos and pointing you in the right direction in terms of who is currently hiring. Unlike other course providers, when you leave us – you will walk out with the perfect demo lesson video which you can start sending to potential employers straight away. Thereafter, you will receive lifetime support from our recruitment head and join our network of alumni where we share industry tips, have an up-to-date job board and peers to converse with.
