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


I do love DELTA Module 1 due to the fact that it enables me to recognize the gap of my knowledge, and to broaden what I have known in the teaching career. I got much support from tutors and made a lot of new friends. However, I sometimes felt that several in-class lessons were not related to practice tests. I think that teachers should clarify the clear goals of each lesson and indicate the correlation of the lesson and the test.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

I've done a preparation course for Delta M1 with ITI and it was a valuable experience. The whole Delta team was very supportive and they were ready to answer our questions at all times. I found online sessions to be very collaborative and engaging (it was a pleasant surprise). The feedback on our written works was very detailed, which helped a lot. Thank you ITI!

, DELTA Module 1 student,

They did a really great job. The moodle is full of information and the tutors are really active on the forums. The momentum of the first 7 weeks was amazing, I was learning and remembering things that really helped me improve as a teacher. However, I do feel it slowed quite a bit after that and I found myself not really gaining quite as much as just kind of wishing it was time for the exam as I was beginning to forget it all over again.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It was really a great experience with ITI, the appropriate schedule, regular classes, helpful material and prompt response for any query. I would like to complete my remaining modules (Module 2 &3) from ITI.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

Honestly, two of my friends recommended your institution. They told me it’s great and I’m so happy I listened to them and took the course with you! It’s a very challenging course but the constant support from the tutors made it a lot easier to handle. I’m so grateful to have had such wonderful tutors! Liz, Ramy and Elena you are very professional, approachable and dedicated! One can’t ask for a better tutor! From the bottom of my heart thank you all for making one of the hardest experiences of my life a unique one.

I have met new tutors who taught us a lot of interesting things that will help us building our career in a better way. Teaching is my passion and I can say that CELTA helped me to figure out the best way to make it more professional and enjoyable as a life time job.

, CELTA student,

I enjoyed my course although a little more communication was needed in the delay of responses to our assignments and provisional grade . Grades were given a week late with no updates . Assignments also took very long to mark . There was a lack of communication towards the end of the course.

, CELTA Online student,

I have really enjoyed my experience with the ITI tutors - they are all very knowledgeable, professional and highly devoted to their job. During my CELTA course the tutors were very supportive and I have learned a lot from them! Besides learning so much about English teaching, I have also learned many tricks about teaching online and I have definitely upgraded my skills in that area :) So I will definitely recommend everyone to take an online CELTA course here, at ITI.

, Workshops - Strategies for teaching speaking student,

Although it was a long course, it was a nice experience to work with ITI and all the staff.

, CELTA Online student,

I'm really happy with both of my tutors Majid and Liz! They were very professional, helpful and provided me with valuable, detailed though tactful feedback. The only thing I wish was added to the course is final one-on-one session with the tutor, where we could have discussed progress, further development and other private matters. Best of luck!

, CELTA Online student,

To improve my teaching skills the course indicated me very useful and significant techniques and methods. I would like to use them in the future. Due to observation of experienced lessons and the feedbacks of my tutors I have made progress. Now it’s time to practice the things that I have learnt on the course.

Actually, I’ve learned great strategies and new approaches in teaching English. I’ve had a good experience on how to deal with students well according to their levels and background.

If you are into learning and if you are a hardworking individual, never hesitate to take part in this wonderful course at this great institution. Just be open minded and don't guard!

My experience with this CELTA course was more than satisfactory, I enjoyed input sessions, teaching practice and being able to make a little research again for the assignments. It was great!

, CELTA Online student,

The online course was well-organized. The tutors are supportive, always willing to help and answer questions, even outside their working hours. During the course, trainees had access to course books, grammar books and other useful materials. The course itself is very demanding but definitely worth the effort. Interactive input sessions, teaching practice and constructive feedback, helped me to develop and improve significantly. I've learnt a lot, and despite working hard, I enjoyed every single day of the course. I am happy I chose ITI, and I highly recommend it to everyone.

, CELTA Online student,

The online course worked very well, just so much work and reading to do ut that would be the same even face-to-face. Very enjoyable and enlightening.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

I would not elaborate yet it was an eye-opening experience; the tutors were meticulous and educated;

, DELTA Module 1 student,

A life saver course for those intending to take the DELTA exam. The content is well geared for examination purposes and the intensive course though challenging helped in getting on board rather quickly.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It was again another fruitful experience with ITI. It was online but I really felt the warmth of the atmosphere with nice course participants and tutors. It is also great to know that we can continue using moodle and even post exam practices on the next DM1 course moodle. Thank

, DELTA Module 1 student,

İ want to thank the İTİ team and especially my tutors Majid and Joanne for a very informative course!

, CELTA Online student,

It was a very intensive course for me and I learned a lot. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to do this right now. I know that it will influence my teaching for years to come. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, as a first year teacher, it was perfect for me as I was able to reflect on my current teaching with a little bit of understanding regarding real-life application. I think it was a great experience overall.

, CELTA Online student,

I deeply enjoyed being guided through each and every step of 'learning teaching' from the ground up. It has given me a new perspective of teaching and a strong framework to rebuild my skills on. Overall, I clearly saw that Tutors present every opportunity to the trainees to improve, the choice falls upon the trainee to take it or leave it. Their dedication to their job as a trainer is admirable and exemplary and provides a learning opportunity itself.

, CELTA Online student,

Overall I learned new teaching method of using content and important CCQ, ICQ and feedback tools in teaching English.

, CELTA Online student,

A wonderful and enjoyable learning experience Special thanks to my tutors Zahra and Rami for their help during the course

, TKT Exam - Online Preparation Course student,

It was great

, CELTA Online student,

It was a unique experience with lots of learning opportunities through course units, discussion forums, built-in videos, links to various ELT sources and one-to-one tutoring. This course is really good value for money and the best thing that has happened to me during the coronavirus lockdown. I wholeheartedly recommend this particular CELTA by ITI, and I would like to thank my tutors Liz and Tom for all the support provided me during the teaching practices.

, CELTA Online student,

I experienced a fruitful month alongside my peers and tutors, it was all really well-planned and great. Thank you ITI.

, CELTA Online student,

Zoom - based course. So cannot really judge location and site. Overall, it's impressive how much hard work is also done on 'the other side' @ITI and at the same time I had the feeling of being taken good care of. The course is very well structured and besides several small errors in the course units almost everything is 100% good in my opinion. Only one thing: in our over-informed time, the allowed size of assignment might better be extended to 750 - 1250 instead of 1000. I always felt a bit limited by the 1000. I thought I had more to say. Moodle misbehaves from time to time, so the status of the units is not really reflecting what happened. The system lost track of progress from time to time. Congratulations Cambridge and ITI. : - ).

, CELTA Online student,

I enjoyed this course and learned a lot. I feel well-prepared moving forward. The TPs were good practice and I feel like I was given a variety of teaching practice both at two different levels and different types of lessons. Some weeks there was frankly too much work to do to feel like I was really giving it my best; the combination of TPs, modules, assignments, etc. was rigorous and although this course is advertised as a "part-time" format, I was spending over 40 hours per week once TP started. Perhaps it would be beneficial to give people a more accurate understanding of how much work there is involved.

, CELTA Online student,

I thank you all for the course, fantastic tutors and managers. I’m happy to have studied at ITI.

, CELTA Online student,

I really enjoyed every minute of doing this excellent, practical teaching course. The tutors are professional, supportive, and friendly. The content is a satisfactory remarkable addition to my career. It's unforgettable experience.

, CELTA Online student,

The course is intensive really but its value, in the end, is precious! You feel you've got something and it won't be taken away from you forever. I've been learning many things throughout the course which would be working as principles to sustain myself how to be a prominent English teacher whenever I am going to be! Throughout this great course, I have been able to learn how to identify the suitable lesson shape for any lesson I am going to teach particularly according to main and sub aim, alongside other elements as well. I’ve found getting to know and applying language clarification approach through meaning, form and pronunciation is one of the most important parts for any lesson type, mainly the grammar one, since utilizing effectively this approach will make any teacher definitely prominent anywhere anytime. I feel so proud that this Celta course has equipped me with protective tools in order to know how to run my classes smoothly with full readiness, motivation, confident and full of knowledge to give!
