International House is one of the largest and oldest groups of language schools in the world. Founded in 1953, we are a global network of 160 language schools in more than 50 countries. Schools in the network teach English, Spanish, German, French and a wide variety of other languages. Across our network, IH schools train about half of all CELTA graduates in the world. We have well over 200,000 students, and our schools employ in excess of 5,800 teachers.
International House World Organisation is the head office of International House. We manage the IH brand, work with schools who wish to affiliate to IH, develop our quality scheme and ensure these standards are met through regular inspections, and manage network communications, publicity, and news.
For affiliate schools we arrange a number of annual conferences, offer recruitment services and list vacancies on our Jobs website, and organise events for Study Abroad schools.
We also develop and offer a suite of online teacher training courses for teachers who want to invest in their continued professional development or specialise in a particular area of interest.
