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.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


All the tutors were beyond great. I am so grateful to them all.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It was a great experience from which I learned a lot, it was an eye opener to conduct researches and continue learning new teaching strategies. As well, it shows clearly, the importance of connected speech, to which we do not pay a great deal of intention. Moreover, Having such a tutor as Joane, will always motivate me to have more courses in ITI.

, Workshops - The ELT Life Cycle student,

Everyone at the institute was super friendly and helpful. The layout of the classrooms and the library was very good. I wish to come back for other workshops and courses.

, CELTA student,

Such a lovely place, such lovely faces! 😊 It was really great to spend my time learning teaching techniques at ITI. I strongly recommend this center to anyone living anywhere around the world. It was tough to catch up with every task, and personally, I worked really hard to achieve the goals. All that being said, it was rewarding and the tutors were available night and day to support us. Thank you ITI ☺️

This online course was one of the best that I have ever taken!

, CELTA Online student,

ITI has been the greatest factor in my personal development journey. I've completed all of my courses at ITI, including TKT, CELTA, Train the Trainer, some smaller courses, and now I'm currently continuing with DELTA Module 1. They always prepare and design all the courses very professionally, whether it's online or face-to-face; it doesn't matter. The resources, videos, materials, and topics are all well-planned. Because the tutors here are masters of their craft, I make sure to take all the courses without hesitation or second-guessing. I'm eagerly looking forward to implementing what I've learned here in my own classroom.

, Other - Teaching Artistry for Teachers and Educators student,

It was very useful, thank you

, DELTA Module 2 student,

It was a really great experience to refresh my knowledge in English teaching and meeting new people.

, CELTA student,

I had a brilliant experience studying CELTA at ITI. I was lucky to run into an extremely wonderful group of people that made my experience worthwhile. ITI offers top notch facilities to its students in every way.

, CELTA student,

Even though it was an intense program, I was happy that I was able to share all the ups and downs with my peers. Our tutors were kind and helpful, the feedbacks we got definitely took our teaching practices to the next level. Also having the higher and lower levels with different tutors and students was a really nice opportunity. I loved the schedule, everything made sense and it was fun. Assignments were not so helpful in my opinion and the video observations could have been more updated. Overall, it was a great experience and I’m grateful that I was a part of it.

, CELTA student,

I don't regret choosing ITI in the slightest. The tutors were beyond competent and the facilities complimented the overall experience by rendering everything accessible.

, CELTA student,

The course was as expected: rigorous and intensive. I was carrying loads of self doubt and was working 14h a day. However, it all made sense and the puzzle started forming, in the last 10 days. Only then, I realized how many new skills and approaches I had learned and the cheer neurological rewiring I had undergone. I learned a lot and made some wonderful friendships. I would love to do it again!

, CELTA student,

ITI's preparation course for DELTA's module 1 was amazing. The teachers showed great expertise, and they were always very helpful. The content of the course was exactly what a DELTA candidate needs, particularly the exam practice offered every week, I am thankful as not only was it helpful but also feedback was given back on time.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

great experience

, CELTA student,

Thanks to a wonderful ITI team for their warm welcome and hospitality. The staff are friendly, the tutors are professional, the learners are nice and the peers are the best. The CELTA course is a must for all English teachers for its practical usage. I've learnt a lot and received a precious experience.

, CELTA student,

I had great time there; it was a wonderful experience. The tutors were friendly and helpful and I learned a lot.

, CELTA student,

I was thrilled by the fantastic experience with amazing tutors.

Helpful and detailed feedback from tutors

, Workshops - Managing Teacher Talking Time student,

I want to thank our experienced professional tutors Robyn, Liz and Zahra who have a good command of knowledge in Celta materials and methodology. Everything was on time as promised, Esi

, CELTA Online student,

The experience is unforgettable. When I started the course, I felt very nervous because I couldn't figure out how to use Moodle and the site had bugs and didn't work properly. I was surprised at how supportive the tutors turned out to be in this situation. Whenever I messaged Elizabeth, she responded immediately. Throughout the whole course Elizabeth and Zara were there to help. As for the content of the course, generally, I'm happy with it. The only thing I would suggest is making all forums optional. Students don't have enough time to post anything and check others' posts.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a wonderful experience in which I learned a lot..after CELTA course is definitely different than beforr CELTA course. Thanks to the institute, the Admins, and the best tutors.

She also helped and pushed my limits as much as she could towards passing my LSAs. Thanks Joanne Bates and ITI for having such great tutors. My second tutor was Elna, has also been a great tutor and provided me with help and feedback to push me towards passing my first LSA. Thanks all for your help and support 🙏

, DELTA Module 2 student,

It was really intensive, but tutors were great and I learnt lots of useful techniques.

, CELTA Online student,

I am generally very satisfied; however, if we could have had more access to resources while writing assignments, it would have been much better.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a very remarkable experience. It was a kind of school that could make great contributions to you, especially with its tutor support and rich content.

, CELTA Online student,

A great experience!

, CELTA Online student,

I took the online course and my only issue was that the lesson units on moodle were outdated and even though we were studying online they didn’t contain any information about teaching that way. My tutors were fantastic in this course I learned a lot from my live classes, feedback sessions and observations. The staff were super nice and helpful they made sure everyone was comfortable with the time of teaching and live classes and they would make changes if necessary.

, CELTA Online student,

I am happy to choose ITI.

, Workshops - How to measure achievement and perform assessment student,

, CELTA student,

Overall, it was a really engaging and promotional course.

, CELTA student,

Thank you in advance for presenting the course. The tutors were professional and could successfully engage us in the course. It was an invaluable experience, and I will appreciate the tutors' feedback, comments, and instructions. Even though we went through difficult times regarding the time limit for assignments and preparing TP lesson plans, it was worth it and made a big difference in my perspective regarding teaching English. Best regards,

, CELTA student,

It was a great course but every thing was kind of vague at the bigining and that was a bit stressful

, CELTA student,

My time at the institute was truly remarkable, even with the time constraints of the intensive course. The lessons I learned were incredibly valuable, and the tutors were always there to lend a helping hand. The fellow attendees were also amazing, and their support was always appreciated. It was a life-changing experience that opened my eyes to the world of teaching. Each tutor had their own unique perspective on language instruction, and I feel blessed to have met individuals like Mr. Mehdi and Ms. Alyona, who offered invaluable feedback that helped me progress towards my goals.

, CELTA student,

It was quite stressful and tiring, but I've learned and improved a lot thanks to this course. I'm happy that I've experienced it.

, CELTA student,

pleasant albeit stressful

, CELTA student,

Overally speaking the course has been a great experience and tutors were all helpful and knowledgeable. I had a great experience. Only wish the input sessions could all be held first thing in the morning since by the time we had our in put sessions in the afternoon we had already become mentally and physically fatigued. also it could have been much better if we had been treated with something to drink or eat as a snack.

, CELTA student,

It was a life-changing experience for me. Even though it was an extremely intensive course I enjoyed every moment of it and if I were to go back, I would still attend this CELTA course

, CELTA student,

Great

, CELTA student,

I do appreciate my trainer for teaching so many informative and practical lessons in both speaking and writing. Undoubtedly, I learned a lot of things that can be useful for my job prospects.

, CELTA Online student,

I was so blessed to complete my CELTA from ITI. As I just stepped into the teaching industry it was my pleasure having such great mentors and tutors. ITI has marked the starting of my teaching and training career. And I was lucky to have tutors like Mr. Mehdi and Mrs Robyn who guided me through every step. We all spent such an amazing time and made so many new friends and made a family altogether. The journey was hard though but we could overcome it by each other's support especially Mr. Mehdi and Mrs. Robyn. I am so thankful to iti for making this journey so special. Thanks for everything. I just wish I could do the course offline as it would be more fun but yes we did enjoy the course online too. I would highly recommend ITI if anyone is doing their training. Thanks 😊😊

Celta was an amazing course to me I have learned many things from Celta. My tutors were supportive and helpful. During the course, I faced a new world of teaching language and I will use all the methods in my teaching. Whenever I wanted something, I went to google classroom and all the materials took a place there and made my job easier because I had all the resources in one place and they were categorized well and accessibility to resources was perfect.

, CELTA Online student,

The course was very helpful and informative for teaching.

, CELTA student,

My experience was pretty satisfactory except for the fact that sometimes we got no students to teach during the TPs especially in the second stage. Tutors and staff were very professional and supportive and did a great job throughout the whole course to provide us with the necessary resources, guidance and assistance when needed inside and outside the ITI.
