IH Online Teacher Training Institute

IH Online Teacher Training Institute

If you are an EFL teacher looking to enhance your career, you can study with the IH Online Teacher Training Institute (OTTI) for part-time online courses to improve your teaching skills and career development. 

Our online courses are asynchronous which means you can access the site and the information whenever it suits you, whether that’s first thing in the morning or last thing at night. There is no set time to be in a classroom with a group of people. You will only need to make the time to log on, access the material and interact on the forums.

We offer courses that match your career path. There are courses that start at the beginning of your career so you can hit the ground running, and there are courses for professional development once you’ve had a few years’ experience as a teacher.

Find more detailed information on our online courses below, and please feel free to contact us with any questions you have.
