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 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
