International Training Institute
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.
A variety of accommodation options are available, upon request
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.

Generally, I am satisfied with most of the zoom sessions that you could also watch later since they were recorded and the feedback I received by most of the tutors was accurate and helpful. However, I am not satisfied with the materials provided since I believe that that we could have been given more guidance on the exam tasks and not just lists of books to read. Maybe a bank with useful language for each task would be more useful or a list of topics to cover with possible answers for paper 2 task 3 because not all candidates have the time to create their own bank and this is something that I would expect from a paid course.
It's sheer luck that I have found this amazing institution in such turbulent time. The staff, the tutors, and the overall organisation of the online course were simply superb. Doing Delta M3 was an insightful and pleasunt experience, and I felt constant support from the team. Thank you and looking forward to studying with you in Delta M3 course!
The tutors are quite friendly and helpful, but some of them seem less energetic/interested in hearing from the students; there should be some sort of assessment/observation to ensure that tutors can still inject their own personal style to the lessons, but the degree of standards wouldn't vary too much.
A good refresher on all aspects of teaching for someone like me who has been away from teaching for some years, before starting again.
All was brilliantly exposed to us, in a friendly environment. The tutors were always ready to help us with our questions. Even though I am going to sit the exam in December, they gave me suggestions and were always committed to us students.
Tutors and administrative staff are very supportive. I had my course online so I can’t grade the location.
It has been a wonderful experience overall! I loved how all the topics of study and how the input sessions followed a logical flow. I saw how I was developing as the weeks progressed. I was very happy with the feedback and support provided by the tutors- they were always so helpful and kind. I felt like I could easily contact Joanne via email and also Özlem, and they answered all my questions quite promptly. I was very happy with all the tutors and the lessons were engaging. I didn't attend many of the input sessions lively because I needed more time to do background studying first. But I watched all of them, took notes as I paused the video and that is what worked best for me. I was also surprised by how much the tutors knew! They are experts in the field and I have learned so much from all of them. A big thanks to all the tutors and Dr.Tom for making this a possibility for all of us. What you are all doing is truly inspiring!
I gained great experience, I didn’t gained in my years of university.
For me, the ITI is synonymous with a community of wonderful and kind individuals. Taking the intensive CELTA course there was undoubtedly challenging, but I genuinely cherished every moment of it. I had the privilege of learning from incredibly intelligent, dedicated, and considerate tutors, who provided invaluable guidance. Furthermore, my peers were simply lovely, and I gained a great deal from their support and collaboration throughout the course.
To be completely honest, it was one of the most remarkable learning encounters I've ever had. Although the course can be challenging and mentally demanding, with the incredible guidance of exceptional tutors like Mehdi and Robyn, you will have the ability to persevere, succeed, and flourish. There is an abundance of knowledge to acquire and numerous rewards to reap, and ITI provides the ideal environment for that. I feel incredibly thankful and content to have become part of the CELTA course at ITI. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to everyone involved.
It was a full experience to be had. Thank you to everyone who made this meaningful even though it was very challenging, tiring, and maybe the most painful period of our lives.
Although it was my first time studying abroad, the staff and environment were friendly and supportive and it reduces the stress of the course
It was fantastic. I loved it and learned a lot. Thanks
It was a great experience . Thanks to the tutors and all the staff ,in fact I’ve learned a lot through this journey and I’ve also developed my personal skills. All in all , this experience has paved the way for me to invest in my career and to develop my personal growth.
It was a great course
The location was great, and very convenient, the staff was kind, helpful and very supportive, and the tutors were incredible. I loved every bit of every day. Only one thing: since there are a lot of PowerPoint presentations during the course, perhaps it wouldn't be a bad idea to get a couple of PowerPoint presenters (remote devices). Regardless, thank you for everything.
It was a great course, I learned a lot and feel that I have developed as a teacher overall. Online courses can be difficult to teach and organize, but overall I think this was very well done.
Great experience, would recommend others to attend
For me it was an eye-opening experience with cool and professional tutors in a friendly and welcoming environment.
CELTA was a great journey to explore teaching and learning processes, it has been an amazing opportunity to meet such knowledgeable tutors and active teachers. All the best
Overall. This course couldn’t been better without the tutors i had (Ramy & Robyn) they are amazingly cooperative and keen to help whenever they find a chance. I deeply appreciate that i was assigned to their group!
It was the best course ever.
My experience was positive. I find the tutors to be very professional, helpful and supportive. They know how to give the feedback in the manner that highlights the best of you and not in a discouraging one.
I feel so privileged to have had the chance to be accompanied by a great team. Thank you all🌷
International Training Institute In Istanbul is a top level provider for the Celta course. I actually choose this course here particularly for the high reviews in comparison to other places like Egypt, Morocco, or even where I live in Vienna. There are so many great things to say about this course so where do I start!? Well, maybe the things you most likely want to know. The quality of the instructors is top notch and there is NO doubt about that. Passionate, Professional, Patient and helpful are words that don’t do these tutors any justice. I enjoyed all of them. What made it special for me in particular is that they all had different ways of teaching and personalities but what remained equal was the effort they put into making sure they were approachable and ready to help or explain again or whatever you needed. The feedback was always so good and I never felt cheated in that sense. They really were a great bunch. Elena (very knowledgeable), Mehdi (Top Top professional with a lot of knowledge), Daria ( she’s so cool! :-) and helpful) and Robyn (oozes passion for teaching English) It’s important to say though that all of the tutors are knowledgeable and passionate but I just wanted to describe what I took from each. The staff are soooo lovely. Really. I love the teachers but I adored the staff. I really miss them :-( I hope that if I take the delta course that they are still there as it would be like returning to family. And the facilities are excellent and more than enough. The location is of course great. You’d be in the Levant area which has so much food and excellent links to popular areas. ITI was an experience I’ll never forget and helped me learn a lot about myself. Of course.. bring your A game. ITI are not just going to hand you the certificate but be serious and they will do all they can to help you complete your goals. I myself was a bit of a difficult student I’d imagine for them but I really appreciate the feedback and honesty in helping me to get through. I could have done even better but I can’t say the same about ITI in any aspect. They exceeded my expectations. This really was one of my better experiences in my life! If you need to take a course here then just know you won’t regret it. I can’t praise them enough. Thank you everyone at ITI.
I'm very grateful that I chose to do Module 2 intensively with ITI. Things are set up to allow us to do our best. The students were amazing, and the support staff really good at their job.
I had a great time there, learned an incredible amount from T-Dog, Shock L and the LZA. The camaradery between the course participants was incredible, we became a family over those 6 weeks. Ilknur is amazing, I wish I had an Ilknur at my workplace.
The course has been an amazing experience. The tutors are excellent ELT professionals and just excellent people all around - I feel a better teacher even after short six weeks because of their guidance and support.
I had an amazing experience at iti Istanbul. Id definitely recommend it for anyone wishing to do the Celta abroad.
A great journey and a memorable experience.
It was a magnificent experience and i really benefited from everything i learned
This was an 5-week course which I do recommend over the more usual 4-week one! Although quite overwhelming at times, everything was smooth and efficiently run. Feedback was very quick for each task, with very constructive encouragements. Felt the staff really wanted us to do well and helped wherever they could. Thanks again to all! A great course.
Great, detailed feedback Engaging sessions, especially Elna and Liz
I had a great time taking the CELTA Course at ITI. We had the best tutors who encouraged us to do better each day. For me, CELTA was a fun learning experience.
Best experience ever!
I reccomend all teachers willing to do CELTA course to do it in ITI for many reasons. The tutors are professional, the organization is on level and the location and living expenses are affordable.
I am fully satisfied
The tutors at ITI were very supportive. They always gave me new and challenging tasks. I was concerned about taking the CELTA course because it's online, but now I’m happy that I took it because I improved not only my teaching skills in general, but also my teaching skills for the computer and online. I highly recommend the International Training Institute's CELTA course.
Online CELTA with ITI is a great opportunity for foreign teachers! It's just mind breaking!
My tutors Liz and Zahra were very supportive and gave constructive feedback with the help their guidance I have improved the areas I need to work on
I would like to thank my tutors (Liz Aykanat and Özlem Kaplan) for this wonderful experience! It's been my dream to do CELTA for several years and I'm glad that I did it in your school - the procedures were always clear, tutors always followed the plan, not to say how motivating and inspiring our sessions and TPs were! We always got a very thorough feedback on our lessons, all the comments were to the point and very discreet. I wish all the best to the school and tutors and hope to do DELTA one day :)
It was helpful and very nice
It is a great experience and full of challenges. I am glad that I met the great administrative staff and facilities. It is an extremely useful course that is full of information and clear instructions that guide as to be a good teacher.
It was the most professional training I have ever attended. It’s really worth it. I will never forget those days.
It was (and, I hope, will be) absolutely magnificent, inspiring, worthwhile, something taking you to the next level. You realise once more how important it is to be part of the community of likeminded people. The teachers are real experts. And you only wish you had more time to read all the books)
It was a wonderful experience. I look forward to be there again may be for a delta course.
It was a good learning experience.
Everything was nice and professional there.
As for me everything is really good: professional tutors, always ready to help and share their knowledge. Friendly staff (administration and canteen workers).
It was a great experience and I can say almost everything was above the standard. One point to be considered is that one of the tutors could have applied better techniques in providing trainees with feedback.
I really enjoyed the course. I am definitely not the teacher who started the course, it changed my point of view dramatically. I recommend it to anyone who wants to either become a teacher or improve their teaching level.
It was an amazing experience. I’ve learned many things such as teaching techniques and professional behavior from Ramy, Robyn and Mehdi. All the tutors were helpful and supportive except 1. Thank you ITI
It was great.
The course was way more challenging than I was expecting. This is why I decided to take the exam later. However, I was pretty satisfied with the online sessions. The tutors were knowledgeable and helpful. I'd like to take the course again. This time I will be able to do the exam practices and have the chance to get feedback from the tutors.
I received comprehensive support during the course, and tutors went out of their way to help whenever they could.
Frankly speaking, it is one of the most positive impressions I've ever gotten thanks to our highly professional, friendly and incredibly motivating tutors. I'm extremely grateful to them and the school in general for the knowledge and practice I have gained.
That was a great journey!
It's the best learning experience I have had throughout my learning journey!
It was awesome
It was the best experience in my life. I got familiar with amazing people.I could improve my knowledge and broaden my horizons ,Even though the course was intensive.
It has been an absolute joy and pleasure to learn with ITI! Tutors are highly-qualified professionals who have been approachable and supportive of trainees at all times. The growth we all gained here in 4 weeks is just unbelievable! All tutors tried to make sure we get as much as possible from the experience and helped us a lot to fulfill our potential. Thank you loads - you are making a huge difference in people's professional lives! We were extremely lucky to have amazingly caring Daria and wonderful Robyn as our tutors - simply the best of the best!
The course was a good experience for me even though it is quite demanding. The tutors were very helpful and their feedback was very insightful. The input sessions were very informative and contained a good amout of detail without being overwhelming.
I enjoyed the course, made new friends, worked with experienced tutors. I really appreciate the time I had in the course.
Overally it was an amazing experience! I learned a lot and I have a whole new understanding of teaching as a profession now.
IT was an outstanding experience with the most amazing tutors. I’m beyond grateful!
The course gave me the necessary tools to plan engaging and effective lessons. I'm truly grateful.
The best experience ever.
It was an interactive course, had a balance of input and theory. The active participation from colleagues was really helpful.
I enjoyed every single moment of the course.
Overall, it was a smooth and easy follow course
Thanks for helping me always. Thanks Tom!
The course was well designed and thought provoking. Tom was great as a tutor.
Taking this course in ITI was the best decision I've made in my life. And I really enjoy it.
It was a life time experience, the location of the institute is one of the best areas in Istanbul. I had a great amount of help from my tutors, Robyn, Elena and Mehdi they were great and supportive all the way. All staff were respectful and kind, I didn't have any issues with anyone. Thank you for everything.
It was a great experience for me to learn new things and try to stop fossilized methods I had learned before.
Loved the course, tutors, and camaraderie of my fellow classmates!
It was really a great experience. All people (tutors, administrators, directors) are helpful and kind. I am going back to the ITI again to take the DELTA course.
Overall, the experience was absolutely interesting!
This was the best experience I had in my whole life. It was such a unique experience, and I am looking forward to the Delta course.
The course was very intensive and highly time-consuming, but the tutors did their best in order to help us and lead us the right way.
That was a fantastic experience for me. All the people in this center are so supportive. They genuinely help the candidates. I am glad to choose this center. I have a plan to participate in other courses. I will definitely choose ITI again.
The course is absolutely worth taking. I am thankful to our tutors Daria and Rami. They were helpful and dedicated. Their feedback was always detailed and clear. Though it was a tough experience I truly enjoyed my time in ITI.
Personally, I liked everything. It was a very informative course. Tha fact that I had "Daria Vaskova" as one of my tutors was the best part.
Totally fruitful. I learned beyond expectations through this course.
I’m glad I’ve chosen ITI for doing the CELTA course. The tutors Elena, Zahra and Mehdi were very supportive and professional. The overall course procedures were well-structured and organised. I would definitely recommend this centre and the course to other people.
one of a kind,thank you
The ITI experience will forever be ingrained.
A good and an insightful experience
The course was beneficial and add a lot to my teaching expertise.
Stressful but sweet and effective
I enjoyed this course very much. It was a pelasure to meet the tutors and learn from them. Everyone was so kind and caring. They would answer all question, as soon as possible. Taking this course was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
"It was unquestionably a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me. Memorable, unforgettable, spectacular, unique. The most remarkable thing about the course was its supportive and professional tutors Daria, Ayham, Mehdi, and Ramy. It was not easy, challenging, or demanding, but I enjoyed every class day by spending time with my tutors and other Celtees and learning from them. This was definitely the right decision to take the course.
This was a fascinating course. I have a clear insight into the type of teacher I am now. I learnt so much and felt privileged to be trained by such experienced teachers and tutors. Their sessions were brilliant as were their feedback and guidance. Apart from all this, the course reminded me and reaffirmed my love of teaching.
CELTA journey was absolutely beautiful! I learned a lot and I gained perfect experiences from great tutors.
Very demanding 4 weeks ;however you end up a worthy teaching experience as well as meeting amazing people:)
I enjoyed the course because the tutors are enthusiastic people who put an effort to let students' understand the materials and they showed me that it is enjoyable to be a teacher.
I had a great experience while taking this course. I have learned many things to carry on in my future career.
It was challenging but also useful and I gained a lot of good teaching experience.
