About International TESOL College

HOW ITC STARTED

International TESOL College (ITC) was established in 2009 to provide English Language teacher training to meet the need for professional TESOL teachers and tutors throughout the world. For several years we delivered our Australian accredited and internationally recognised Certificate IV in TESOL course, giving graduates a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of teaching English. This was provided through partnership arrangements with Registered Training Organisations. We no longer deliver training but our courses are licenced to many RTOs that deliver our course, both domestically and internationally. We now focus on continuously updating our Certificate IV course to ensure participants are provided with the most up-to-date information regarding advances in English language teaching.

After identifying the need for a course to build on the skills and knowledge offered by the Certificate IV in TESOL, in March 2022, ITC finalised the rigorous process of accrediting a Diploma of TESOL. The Diploma offers specialisms in English language teaching as well as management, for those wanting to expand their skills without the cost and time commitment of a post-graduate qualification.

In September 2022, after several years of research and development, and liaison with industry experts, we accredited a suite of English courses which are designed as a pathway into further study or employment for all English language learners. We offer all our accredited courses to RTOs that wish to deliver them under licence.

We provide supporting resources, assessments etc for all our accredited courses as well as any assistance RTOs require to add our courses to their scope of registration.

Our TESOL Certificate IV and Diploma courses are also available as online courses and we will soon be offering online professional development courses for English teachers wanting to upskill.
