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.

, CELTA Online student,

It is a very useful, practical and refreshing course that all teachers must have for their career and future improvements.

Tutors were so supportive and they were always there to provide us with all the useful tips and constructive advice. I was lucky to be one of the trainees there. I really enjoyed everything there.

, CELTA Online student,

Tutors were great - some were harsher than others, but perhaps that’s just due to different teaching styles. I had a great experience overall.

, CELTA student,

on the whole, i learnt a lot and i appreciate it

, CELTA student,

Amazing experience would definitely recommend it to friends and colleagues in the field.

Before the course started, I had some expectations but I couldn’t imagine just how much I was going to learn. This was a unique experience in which I actually saw my progress and learned valuable lessons for the future. The whole process was stressful but immensely rewarding and eye-opening.

, CELTA Online student,

A valuable experience

, CELTA Online student,

Awesome

, Workshops - How to motivate learners online student,

Generally, it was a good experience, but it would have been better if few things were different. I think the timetable should have been scheduled in a more wise and practical way to be parallel with the course itself. Some of the input sessions were so important and much more time should have been given to them. Besides, they should have been dealt with in more details. Other input sessions were given more time than they really needed. The first days we were bombarded with document and and files that made us confused and not knowing what to focus on. The samples attached with the assignments should be perfect ones made by tutors and not taken from some candidates. We followed them and yet tutors criticized our work. Celta is being recognized as the course that is specifically made for non experienced teachers, yet the course wasn't at all for non experienced teachers. The input sessions, the TPs, the assignments are all based on prior knowledge of linguistics, phonology and other fields including terms and language that only teachers know. I enjoyed taking my course with you and with my tutors. Thank you all. I wish you the best.

, CELTA Online student,

The course was really intense as the name suggested. I learned so much in such a short period of time which is incredible. I think tutors' support was the most essential part of my journey. Thank you all for that.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

It was worth it!

, CELTA Online student,

It was such an adventurous and fulfilling journey. I learned something new every single day. The tutors were all perfect, knowledgeable, supportive and insightful. I highly recommend this course.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a fabulous experience I had with ITI taking the CELTA that I won't forget.

, Workshops - Adopting Active Learning in Online Classes student,

Since I didn't have previous teaching experience, learned everything from scratch during the course. It was an amazing experience

, CELTA Online student,

It was great, applying for the course with the support of your kind staff, specially Cemre Ece. And about the course the tutors were knowledgeable, absolutely kind, and supportive.

, CELTA Online student,

Thank you for a mentally stimulating and enriching experience.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great chance to get this experience. Everything has changed in my mind about teaching after this course. Now I know how to organize a really engaging and methodologically correct lesson! Thank you!

, DELTA Module 1 student,

The course not only created a better teacher out of me, but also gave me the perspective to look into the aspects of the teaching methods with a critical eye. I am also very happy to get the chance to interact students from different cultures and exploring their learning needs with possible challenges has been very interesting.

, CELTA student,

My experience in ITI was amazing. The tutors and the administration were available whenever we needed them as long as the use of the library was very helpful for the preparation of our TPs and assignments.

, CELTA student,

It was great.

, CELTA student,

It was a well-qualified and beneficial course. I am glad to choose this institution and work with my tutors, they are great at what they are doing. Thanks for everything :)

, CELTA student,

Everything was excellent! I want to thank our wonderful tutors, especially Ramy - the best tutor ever!

Amazing experience!!

The best training Institute I’ve ever been !!!

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience taking CELTA at ITI. The Tutors were amazing, supportive and knowledgeable. The facilities provided were helpful.

, CELTA student,

I wish I have had this kind of training many years ago. I could have been a better teacher. I learned many new things about language and especially phonology. The methods the tutors used gave us the opportunity to create mental links and I'm sure I will remeber this course for ever. I haven't had so professional trainers so far. Thank you.

, Workshops - Learning Difficulties, Dyslexia student,

Tutors are very supportive, helpful and professional.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

The tutors and administrative staff were amazing, highly qualified and most kind at all times. It was a pleasure studying with ITI. As our course was given online I'm afraid I am not qualified to rate neither the facilities nor the location.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great and fantastic experience.

, Workshops - Adopting Active Learning in Online Classes student,

I took a 9 month online CELTA course with ITI. I learned so much from my tutors and from teaching practice. The tutors were very professional, knowledgeable, and provided a lot of 1-on-1 support. While I'd had some teaching experience before, I didn't know much about specifically teaching to ESL learners. I now feel very prepared to design and lead ESL lessons. Be warned; the course is a LOT of work, but I think it's worth it.

, CELTA Online student,

I believe that ITI maintains a very high standard of quality and professionalism and every asset at their disposal is dedicated to their mission. I will definitely recommend this institution to all those friends and colleagues who would like to pursue their professional development.

, CELTA student,

I think it was one of the best experiences of learning that a teacher can have.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great experience, a life changing rather. I feel lucky to have met so many wonderful tutors.

, CELTA Online student,

CELTA is definitely a must-do for an English language teacher who has not received any formal training in teaching the language... and where better than ITI Istanbul? The application procedures are quite straightforward, the staff are nice and attentive, the location is easily accessible via subway lines, the premises are clean and frequently sanitized and the trainers are knowledgeable, experienced, encouraging and supportive. If you seek real improvement, you had better choose ITI Istanbul.

, CELTA student,

The course was a fantastic experience, focusing on development and progress. I truly appreciate all of you for all your efforts and expertise. You are the best.

, CELTA student,

It was unforgettable experience. Everything was well organised. Tutors were helpful and supportive. Thank you.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great experience and everyone was so helpful and kind.

, CELTA student,

I did the course online, and the course was extremely rewarding. The tutors and colleagues that I had were very helpful, who made my life easier. I strongly recommend ITI.

, CELTA Online student,

I've just completed Module 2 (part-time) at ITI.. The course is very organised and tutors are amazing. A special thank you to Elna, Sally and Joanne for always being very approachable and helpful :)

, DELTA Module 2 student,

Highly recommended for any teachers, to evaluate their current skills and add new ones. After the course, you will feel stronger in the class and will better know why you are doing what. Thanks ITI.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

Tutors did their best to help us during the course and they focus on the areas which cause confusion and affect the legibility of our assignment. Thank you so much for your great efforts during the course.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

I'm a teacher and quite an experienced student myself, and for me Delta M3 with ITI was one of the best learning experiences in my life! Although it was an online course, I never felt unattended or lost thanks to the wise and timely support of the tutors. The course materials are terrifically logical and organized, and not only I learnt the content of the course but also the way moodle may be turned into a student-friendly platform=)

, DELTA Module 3 student,

Simply, ITI is the best.

, TKT Exam - Online Preparation Course student,

I can highly recommend the ITI DELTA M1 online preparation course. First, the course is well planned and the tutors are highly qualified. I appreciated the fact the course was not designed to ‘teach us to the test’, but to really see a broader perspective. We were not given ready-made answers, but encouraged to think critically and expand our horizons. Second, the individualised feedback that we were getting for our exam practices was invaluable. I helped me see whether I was able to get your message across when I was answering exam questions, and to balance detail and conciseness. Last but not least, the atmosphere on the course was very supportive. Not only were the tutors always ready to help and answer our questions on the forum, but my course mates were also willing to share and collaborate. In my experience, this kind of collaboration was critical for my prep success. I would like to thank my wonderful tutors and course mates for this empowering experience. I am happy to join ITI for Module 2!

, DELTA Modules 1 & 2 student,

Excellent course with well-designed input tasks and amazing tutors.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

The course was incredible. Very well-organized, from input sessions on Zoom to self-study tasks to teaching practice and feedback. The tutors are amazing and promptly respond to emails and questions on the forums. Thoroughly recommended.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

It was great a learning journey.

, CELTA Online student,

I really enjoyed the online M1 with ITI and learned so much! The online, interactive lectures were focused around group activities and put what we learned outside the virtual classroom into practice. Additionally there were lots of additional resources provided on the moodle to work through each week and the pre-lecture tasks were really useful. The most helpful aspect of the course for me was the weekly exam practice and feedback from the course tutors. This tailored feedback really helped me to understand the exam format and what Cambridge are looking for.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

The tutors at ITI made the DELTA M1 experience. I finished the course feeling confident and calm about the M1 exam. The materials provided throughout the course were relevant and interesting and I really valued the feedback carefully given to all submitted materials.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

A great opportunity to meet brilliant people and learn everything we need about our exam.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

This 10-week course was very helpful and informative. I lave learnt may important points about ELT in general and my own ELT career. The activities and assignments kept me busy thinking and applying. This was further reinforced by the fact that assignment feedback was given in a constant manner which enabled me to reflect back. I thank ITI very much. All the best and be safe.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

CELTA program simply rewires your mind to excel in ELT. Considering the amount of effort you simply need to put in, you can even be better character at the end of the course. My OCT was just fantastic.
