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.

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


Everything was perfect and the tutors were supportive.

, Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

It was a great experience to be trained by such a knowledgeable group of trainers. The sessions were clearly structured and thought provoking. The loop approach to each session was delivered by people who genuinely cared about our development and I would, without hesitation, entrust the future training of our teachers into their hands. After getting to know some of the staff and after gaining some insight into the philosophy of the institute I am excited to work with ITI in offering CELT-P & CELT-S online programmes to our teachers. Tom & Liz were both extremely helpful when offering me advice on these courses and I was able to come away with a good overall picture of how my current employers can implement the courses for our teachers. Furthermore Liz's encouragement regarding the DELTA has made me consider taking the online version over the next 12 months with ITI.

, Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

I felt the overall experience was very useful and enjoyable.

, Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

Wonderful experience with great tutors

, Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

It was beyond my expectations, thanks for everything:)

, CELTA student,

It was an awesome experience, but it could be done with less stress and tension by giving a comprehensive guideline before the course about the syllabus, so that we would know what will happen in the course.

, CELTA student,

I highly recommend this course for anyone considering doing the DELTA. First of all, I found all of the materials very organized, and they really helped me to understand the requirements of the assignment and provided practical tips on how to approach it. Also, the tutors on this course were top notch. It was obvious they spent a lot of time reviewing my work and were able to provide valuable, constructive feedback. Whenever I had a question, they responded directly and within a day. I had a terrific experience with ITI, and I can't thank them enough for all of their support. Thank you ALL!

, DELTA Module 2 student,

I really enjoyed this fruitful course. The atmosphere in ITI was so friendly. All the staff and trainers were really helpful, especially Ozge🌹

, CELTA student,

Everything was good, especially the support of tutors and Dear Sally who is always a great help.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

The whole experience was really challenging and demanding. As they truly say, “No pain, no gain.” However, you are not alone when you are going down this road. The tutors are always there every step of the way. Anyone who is looking for professional development and practical skills in a heart-warming environment, ITI is the place to be.

, CELTA student,

I had a great experience and learned a lot of practical things.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

Outstanding experience, friendly enviornment and wonderfully skilled trainers - you can literally inhale knowledge here. Totally recommended.

, CELTA student,

It has been a great experience. The tutors are extremely helpful and supportive. They literally dedicate themselves to train you. I really appreciate their effort.

, CELTA student,

It was a nice experience.Although It was intensive but I totally got the Idea of what teaching English is and how should I do it

, CELTA student,

It was an unforgettable experience that's for sure!

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great experience for me to take this course .I wish I took it before.Everything and everybody was perfect.Thanks to tutors (especially Majit Foroutan) and their huge and valuable help everything was priceless.I have gained a lot of valuable insights in this Celta course to overcome my weaknesses This is the most important improvement I have ever had.

, CELTA student,

It was definitely a good decision to do an online Delta M1 course with ITI. The course was well structured and the content was carefully selected and arranged based on many years of experience and expertise in teacher training. I was stressed when deciding to take the exam right after the course, but the week-by-week training and exam practices helped me go through it. Just follow the tutors, and you will do fine in the exam.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

I was unable to follow the course with as much attention as I would have liked due to lack of time, but I think the tutors were very professional and knowledgeable. I especially appreciated their comments and suggestions on the exam paper assignments.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

I did the whole course online. It was the first time I tried e-learning and I am very satisfied with the outcome. My feedback was always on time and precise. All the instructions included were helpful so I didn't feel lost even once.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

I'm really happy I've chosen to do the course with ITI. The course is well-structured and highly informative, the tutors are proficient and supportive. I felt I was guided properly every single day of the course. I want to thank all the tutors, but especially Sally, whom I truly admire, for her commitment, professionalism and support, and Adam, whose feedback was so encouraging just at the moment I was feeling hopeless. Huge thanks to you!

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It was really great and very helpful. I don't think I would have been able to make head or tails of module 1 without their assistance.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

I did my Delta Module 2 in a different school. I'd definitely say that the tutors at ITI are more supportive and their feedbacks are clearer and more helpful. I loved the input sessions. I wish I could come to the face-to-face ones.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It was a great and amazing experience for two reasons. Foremost, I experienced an online course for the first time and met great people and tutors. Secondly, I have learned a great number of important topics related to ELT. And it is a good opportunity to thank ITI and our well-behaved and active tutors for their overall help and assists. Thank You!

, DELTA Module 1 student,

While I don't know much about the facilities because I took the online Delta Module 1, I can say it's a very challenging exam and tutors do their best in order to present the important points so you can do your own research. You have to do A LOT of work on your own, but those are criticisms best directed at the scope of the exam rather than the course itself. The exam feedback is really important and they give a lot of insight on what went wrong and how to improve. Also the administrative staff is very attentive and try to solve any issues that may arise. Let's hope I succeed so I can continue preparing myself for the other Modules!

, DELTA Module 1 student,

A fantastic experience to learn much from fantastic tutors. Also, the best thing about Module 1 is its flexibility.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

Doing Delta Module 1 with ITI has been a fruitful learning experience.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

i enjoyed every second of it and i learned a great deal about so many aspects of my profession

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It is an interesting course; the tutors are very supportive and scaffolding. I am looking forward to doing Train the Trainer with ITI soon.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It's a great course and the material has been very useful for getting me back on track in teaching terms.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It was an enjoyable intensive course, all of the members helped us to have great memories.

, CELTA student,

A brilliant and unique experience.

, CELTA student,

Very usefull and practical

, CELTA student,

Everything was amazing. Thank you all for that. I wish ITI was bigger and there was a real separated library where we could study in silence and a better place we could sit have snacks or drink tea and coffee. I also wish a better variety of snacks was offered.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience. I am going to miss you all.

, CELTA student,

I was lucky to be a part of an outstanding teaching community, doing DELTA M2 Intensive with ITI. The excellent delivery of the course, the continuous support and encouragement, the experience and insightfulness of the tutors, and the help of my fellow students have allowed me to show the best of my ability and pass the Module with distinction. This experience has been truly rewarding in multiple ways. The input sessions are organized sensibly, with an eye on allowing you to dive in lesson prep fully equipped. The tutors are available all the time, all wonderfully supporting and caring. The feedback I got from my tutors allowed me to pinpoint several “blind” spots in my teaching. The way this feedback was delivered was respectful, detailed, and constructive. The school has obviously invested a lot of time and effort into making the life of their trainees easier, selecting and printing articles to research background essays, organising their library, setting up a helpful Moodle system we could all reach anytime, and helping us to make the best use of the resources we had available. The school fosters peer support, which, given the ITI diversified trainee community, is invaluable in completely revamping the way you teach. It was a pleasure. Highly recommended.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

I had a very good experience on the course, all the staff were friendly,considerate and very supportive. I would have no problems recommending the course and the centre to other people.

, CELTA Online student,

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,

It was a fantastic experience, Celta was really challenging, in terms of work and in terms of rhythm but I liked it all. The tutors were helpful and kind, the team very nice too. All the atmosphere was more than appreciated. I spent great moments there. Thanks a lot again !!!

, CELTA student,

CELTA was a door to a new world of modern teaching

, CELTA student,

It's was a good experience, we 've learnt a lot

, CELTA student,

It was a difficult experience but worth it. Thank you !

, CELTA student,

It is one of my best experiences in my life and I could learn beneficial and practical technics in teaching. Input sessions were awesome. Although I experienced stress, tiredness and sleepless during the course, but it worth and was a big achievement in my life.

, 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,

Thank you all for being so supportive and encouraging throughout the course. It was a wonderfully informative experience and a pleasure to learn from you. Hope to see you all again.

, CELTA student,

It was an educational and fun experience. The tutors were amazing and the atmosphere of the center was friendly.
