The Teacher Training Department:

Photo of TEFL / CELTA Courses in Rome, ItalyThe Teacher Training Department at Accademia Britannica – International House in Rome was established more than thirty years ago to cater mainly to the needs of the local International House Schools. It expanded, however, to become the largest in Italy, in response to the growing demand for training courses in both State schools and private institutions. In 1997 the Department was one of the first in the world authorised by University of Cambridge ESOL to pilot their new Extension Course for Teachers of Young Learners.

All the Teacher Trainers at our centre have a wide range of teaching and training experience, both in Italy and abroad, and are actively engaged in day‐to‐day English language teaching. Many of the Trainers are also Cambridge ESOL examiners and assessors. Our current training team includes trainers from Britain, Ireland and Australia as well as guest trainers who come from experienced training centres abroad.

English Teacher Training Courses:

- University of Cambridge ESOL CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults):
We offer semi-intensive (3 months) and intensive (4 weeks) courses all year round. CELTA is the most widely recognised initial professional qualification accredited level 5 on the UK National Qualification Framework (NQF). Our CELTA course provides initial training in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), but will also suit students who are already in the profession but who have no formal or practical qualification.

- University of Cambridge ESOL DELTA (Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults):
The DELTA qualification is designed for practising and experienced English language teachers. The course is delivered in 2 basic ways around the world: online and face to face. These methods combined give a third format of delivery: blended learning.

- University of Cambridge ESOL CELTYL (Extension Certificate in English Language Teaching to Young Learners):
The CELTYL Certificate is intended for CELTA qualified teachers who are involved in teaching English to young learners or who would like some formal training in this area.

IH Teacher Training Centres have a special commitment to working with teachers whose first language is not English, creating career opportunities for teachers from different backgrounds.

Student Testimonials:

Photos of Accademia Britannica - International House, Rome"I am completely satisfied with the course and especially the course tutors. Their professionalism and expertise are admirable. The content of the seminars was incredibly educational and interesting. I have been given the tools for further self-improvement and I have been given the opportunity to improve my teaching skills. I have got what I hoped for! Thank you all for your effort!"
- Rachel B.

"It was challenging, fruitful and inspiring. I learned a completely new perspective on teaching and the structure of the course was absolutely perfect to make me achieve all that, especially the fact that we were immersed in teaching practice (mine or of my colleagues') every single day!"
- Lisa E.

"The course was far more difficult at the start than I'd expected, but it gradually became easier to follow. I thank my tutors for having put all their effort  to back me up through such a complex and energy consuming practice of teaching (learning how to teach), and I must say each did brilliantly, helping me to develop my teaching skills from quite different yet complementary points of view."
- Shariat H.

"I really enjoyed the course, although it was intense and sometimes stressful. I feel the support from the trainers was great, they were very encouraging and provided very constructive feedback. They also acted as good role models in terms of their attitudes and teaching styles. Thank you!"
- Sarah F.

"It was really what I was looking for. It was very concrete, and I learnt about many useful teaching methodologies I'd hadn't known before. The tutors were fantastic, especially responding to the students' needs. It will certainly be one of the best points in my curriculum."
- Matthew H.

"The course was worth every penny, and I would recommend this specific language school to anyone else interested in taking a CELTA course.  Thanks for the experience!"
- Daniel B.
