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.
Another way we maintain the highest possible standards is by being an institutional member of IATEFL. This is the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language. For more details of this organization, please visit: www.iatefl.org.
