Teacher Training Council (five-day combined courses)
Five-day combined courses are moderated by the Teacher Training Council.
The Teacher Training Council accreditation is an international learning and development body. Underpinning all that we do is the principle of 'Excellence via Competence'.
Training Issues has worked successfully for over 10 years with many enterprises throughout the world, helping them with a wide range of learning and development strategies, assessment and accreditation. As a result, the Training Issues team have built an enviable reputation for high standards and quality, customer experience excellence and getting it right first time.
During this time, over 90% of the work that Training Issues has been involved in has been with personnel whose first language is not English. In one recent accreditation project alone, we needed to take account of 8 separate Asian languages when carrying out our accreditation work. Thus, over 10 years plus, the majority of materials and documentation designed, developed and accredited has been geared specifically to those who use English as a second or foreign language.
As a result of our lengthy experience gained in accrediting international courses with an extensive ELT content, and accrediting Training companies, we now feel that we should also offer this accreditation service to independent TEFL/TESOL Providers who are willing to meet the high accreditation standards set by Teacher Training Council.
Online TESOL and TEFL Standards Agency (online courses and combined courses with OTP)
All ITTT online TEFL/TESOL courses are fully accredited by the Online TESOL and TEFL Standards Agency (OTTSA). OTTSA is a professional education organization, dedicated to raising industry standards for online TEFL/TESOL teacher-training courses.
Our onsite courses are externally validated and moderated by our board of academic advisors. This board includes several internationally recognized experts in the field of EFL/ESL, as well as dozens of regional language experts. Both international and regional members advise our worldwide staff on a regular basis.
Board members visit our centers throughout the world. TEFL International often hosts workshops and conferences where the board members participate as keynote speakers. These members also advise TEFL International regarding the quality or our training and how we can make positive changes so as to perfect our training in relation to current trends and developments. The board members are not TEFL International moderator, but industry experts who advise our centers and participate in training initiatives.
Local moderators (regional board members) are specially trained and experienced teaching, teacher training and hiring teachers. These members visit our centers on a monthly basis to moderate each course, therefore ensuring each course meets industry standards for that particular region, that it is of a high quality and that trainees are happy with their course. These members are not staff members. They meet with training staff and course participants, review work completed by trainees and ensure center resources are adequate.
ITTT's parent organisation, TITC, is an institutional member of IATEFL (the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language). See www.iatefl.org for more details of this organization.
