I’m really fortunate to work for International House Prague and also International House World, an organisation with affiliate schools all over the world. One of the best things about working for an IH school (and IHWO) is the ready access to teacher development opportunities.

Below is just some of development opportunities available for both IH and non-IH teachers.

International House Certificate in Teaching Young Learners and Teenagers

This is a 20 module course (with observed Teaching Practice) which caters to post-service teachers with experience teaching adults, but in need of more specific training to teach young learners and teenagers.

The course can be taken face to face at many IH schools around the globe or online via the IHWO OTTI (Online Teacher Training Institute) in a blended learning format with Teaching Practice supervised by a Local Tutor.

International House Certificate in Teaching Very Young Learners

The International House Certificate in teaching Very Young Learners (IH VYL) is a 10 module course which caters to teachers who are currently teaching VYL (pre-primary/ early years), are about to start teaching VYL or at minimum have access to VYL classes which they can observe. You may have experience of teaching YL classes, but find that the needs of learners age 6 or younger are different and require a different approach.
This course aims to introduce you to the principles involved in teaching this age group and give you a bank of activities and resources to support your teaching.
It can be taken online via the International House OTTI (Inline Teacher Training Institute, or face to face at various IH Centres around the globe.

International House World Organisation: Teachers Online Conference

The IHTOC is a fantastic biannual conference open and free to all (even non IH staff!)

My session recording (Social Media and YL) and notes (as well as others) can be found on the conference blog.

If you’d like to attend an IHTOC, keep your eye on the IHWO website and social media
