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.

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.

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.
The course was great, a lot of new information and practice, that is a priceless experience
It was such a great experience to study this course, I have learned a lot about my strengths and weaknesses with the help of my amazing tutors. Now I believe I am more capable of teaching different skills effectively.
Even for an experienced teacher, the course offers opportunities for professional development and new ways to make the lessons more student-centred.
The course was so enjoyable. It was designed in a way that enabled us t0 make the most out of it.
It was an enriching course. I had a chance to discover my weaknesses and strenghts in teaching. All the shared information was useful and practical enough to improve my skills in teaching.
First of all, I appreciate for this wonderful course. I've learnt many things from the tutors and peers. The input sessions were also beneficial and lucrative. The only thing that I should mention as a negative point is about one of the input sessions that was about how to resubmit the assignment and as assignment 3 was the first one but we didn't know how to resubmit it as the input session took place after that, it seemed a little bit useless. All in all, everything was perfect. Thank you so much.
Very helpful and practical
Although very intense, the CELTA course has to be where I have learned the most about teaching. The course helped me to gain the skills and knowledge you will need as a teacher. This course gave me the training I needed to become an English language teacher. The course covers the principles of effective teaching and gives me a range of teaching techniques and practical experience. I got hands-on teaching practice and observation from experienced teachers, and I could apply my learning by delivering communicative teaching to English language learners. This course will be beneficial when I return to school, and I hope my students will benefit from all I have learned. If I have to summarise the system of CELTA, it has improved my English language awareness. It changed and developed my teaching methodologies and gave me the scope for a better understanding of learners. I believe that it improved me as a teacher. It upgraded my classroom management technique. I have enhanced my plan, resource lessons, and, last but not least, helped me develop professionally.
The experience I gained here is so valuable. It improved me as a teacher a lot. I am so happy about that and will never forget anything regarding this course.
It was one of the best experience of my whole life. I learnt a lot from my tutors. Millions thanks to Robyn and Nazli, best tutors ever!
It was hectic but rewarding
I did learn a lot from Daria! Best turor ever.the course overally was not bad but I expected more. I learned a lot from Daria since she is so knowledgeable and helpful. The course was the same as the teacher training course in Iran( which is being held in iran) which I took part in 2 years ago.so nothing new!!! Also the tutors were not really clear in giving instructions about assignments.the did not help us alot.so everything about the assignments was vague! Thank god I could pass all of them since I have got bachelor's degree in TEFL otherwise I would fail all of them.
The course provides you with whatever toolkit I will need as a teacher in the classroom . Not only did it extend my teaching skills but also ensured I can put them into practice . Tutors were very freindly and a positive and collaborative learning environment was noticeable in all the meetings we had togther .
I have learned a lot from this experience, I think it is a great addition to my teaching skills. I'm so glad that I had my CELTA in ITI, thank you.
ITI is the right choice for the CELTA course!
It was a pleasure taking CELTA at ITI. I have learned a lot from our professional tutors and improved my skills. Thank you for the experience!
A wonderful experience that changed my perspective on teaching. I was really lucky to have two amazing tutors who supported me and provided me with the guidance I needed to complete the course. I am absolutely happy with how it turned out!
Overall, it was a very practical course the feedback given by one of my tutors helped me a lot I feel lucky. He was inspiring and dedicated. the whole experience was great. Thank you
I generally enjoyed my time in ITI; with great tutors and easily followed procedures, they were able to guide us towards completing the course and becoming better teachers in the long run.
Everything was great! Thank you!
This wasn't my first course at ITI and every time I go there, I learn more and more. The tutors are very professional, supportive and friendly, and the learning environment is super positive.
The course is beneficial and informative.
Terrific experience A dream-come-true
Being surrounded by like-minded colleagues from different countries and working with the experienced tutors was really inspiring. Apart from that, I loved the fact that we had a platform with all the documents in one place and a forum, where we could ask questions and find all the necessary information.
