ITTC - the International Teaching and Training Centre - has been running Cambridge Certificate courses since 1984 and trained over 5000 candidates to certificate level and 400 teachers to diploma level. It is part of BEET Bournemouth; one of the UK’s most prestigious language schools.

ITTC’s dedicated teacher training premises are located in charming Winton, just twenty minutes from central Bournemouth on foot. The Victorian building has seven spacious classrooms, some of which are equipped with the latest audiovisual aids. Other classrooms have been designed without AV equipment to replicate the variety of circumstances in which language teachers work.

After class you can relax in the sunny garden, chat in the special teachers’ lounge or research in the extensive library. There is a dedicated study centre with free Internet.

ITTC’s staff are highly qualified and experienced teacher trainers who have worked around the world and within the UK in a variety of contexts. Many of the CELTA tutors are senior assessors or assessors for the CELTA scheme.

Altid härligt att vara i GB men jag slås av den relativa fattigdomen och de många uteliggarna gör mig sorgsen. Mycket bra och engagerade läras på ITTC på BEET var engagemanget mindre. Lärarna verkade mer ointresserade där. Lokalerna var trånga men på ITTC fanns många ändamålsenliga rum. Dock saknades lokal där studenter kunde harbeta i grupper och diskutera. Välmatade intressanta lektioner (ibland i överkant) Tyvärr mycket begränsad tid till diskussioner. Mycket trevlig och välmenande familj. Intresserad och omhändertagande.

« Min kurs var i första hand avsedd att ge lektionsidéer inte personlig språkutveckling, dock är det självklart att umgänge i 100% engelsktalande miljö också förbättrar flytet i språket och dessutom gjort mig varse om saker jag kan förbättra. »

Der Weiterbildungskurs am ITTC war hervorragend. Die zusätzlichen Stunden am BEET entsprachen nicht so ganz meinen Vorstellungen. Wir saßen mit lauter 16-17 Jährigem Schüler*innen in einem Kurs, die auf die CAE Prüfung vorbereitet wurden. Das war zum einen laut und zum anderen nicht für uns zutreffend. Insgesamt waren auch 20 Stunden ausgewiesen, abgehalten wurden dann nur 18 Stunden. Das ist unter Anbetracht der von mir beantragten Erasmus+ Förderung ein echtes Problem. ITTC: 3 TN; Spanisch, Oman; Durchschnittsalter ca. 40im BEET Kurs 15 TN; fast ausschließlich Schweizer (zu ca. 90%); Durchschnittsalter ca. 17 Sehr netter, hilfsbereiter Kontakt. Habe mich wohl gefühlt. Im Rahmen meiner Tätigkeit der Vermittlung von Erasmus+ Mobilitäten empfehle ich ESL gern weiter (habe ich auch schon getan) und veröffentlichen wir auch gern die Webseite auf unserer Webseite.

Gli insegnanti sono dei formatori estremamente preparati e la lezione è sempre interattiva e mirata al costruire insieme le conoscenze. La famiglia era costituita dalla signora Ansell e dai due figli di 27 e 28 anni. C'erano anche altri studenti di varie nazionalità e ogni momento della giornata era un piacevole momento di scambio, linguistico e culturale.

« Assolutamente: a livello didattico mi porto a casa una quantità di informazioni e di nuove idee che non vedo l'ora di mettere in pratica. A livello linguistico, mi sono resa conto di quanto velocemente apprendo, ora che sono un'insegnante e comunque parto già da un livello alto (B2/C1). »

Bournemouth est une ville agréable avec 2 parcs en son centre, et le front de mer juste à côté. Ville où l'on peut se balader le soir en toute tranquillité. De Bournemouth, vous pouvez visiter les villes aux alentours : Christchurch, Poole, ..... Un réseau de bus excellent. De nombreux magasins pour ceux qui aiment le shopping, et une très longue plage pour les beaux jours. J'ai beaucoup apprécié la qualité de l'enseignement : de nombreuses idées, de nombreux conseils nous ont été donnés. Le fait que les cours ne soient que le matin est un plus ; l'après-midi vous permet de visiter les alentours ou d'assister aux cours gratuits des enseignants stagiaires sur place.

Testimonials

I have learned so many things. I am sharing my knowledge and experience – all the things I’ve learnt throughout my studies and my career - with others. You can interchange ideas and knowledge with... it’s constant. It’s a very useful experience. I encourage people to apply for these kinds of courses because they are really, really useful... not only to grow as a teacher but to grow as a person. As an individual, you experience a lot of different things. When I come back to my city I will try to share the knowledge acquired because I believe in sharing knowledge. The extra activities that BEET plans are nice: going out, sightseeing during the weekend. They provide a timetable with movies, trips to see live music at the pub and lectures. I would tell potential applicants about the experience of living here, meeting new people... going out! My advice to teachers coming to ITTC would be to be open-minded because you will meet a lot of people from all over the world. Also be ready to give everything a try and be open to anything. This is not just a course to improve your English... you learn a lot about life.

The teachers are very competent and friendly. The most interesting thing I have learnt here is... everything! I want to share the knowledge that I have gained here when I get back home to my city in Brazil. My advice to teachers coming to ITTC is to be open to different cultures and be ready to meet different people and listen to different accents.

I had a very good time doing the CELTA course, though it was very hard work I enjoyed learning the latest methods of teaching English with English people.

I am very grateful to my tutors Dave and Lucy for enlightening me with the latest methods of teaching English to adults. I gained immense knowledge by their teaching. I am highly indebted to them. I also learnt a lot by observing other experienced teachers of BEET like Julie, Annabelle, Martin and Ali.

I will always cherish these sweet memories of BEET people throughout my life!

Host family
ITTC is situated in a residential area. Most host families live only a few minutes' walking distance from the school and sometimes a few minutes away by bus. Host families are carefully selected and represent without any doubt the best option to continue practising the language outside of class as well as a supportive, relaxing environment. They offer accommodation in a single room with half board during the week and full board at weekends.

Student house (from 18 years)
The school owns some family houses that have been converted and equipped in order to welcome students and teachers, some with a garden and barbeque equipment. Located around 15 minutes away from the language school building, all of these houses can accommodate up to a maximum of 6 people. Residents stay in a single room and share the common rooms and equipment, such as the kitchen, the living room with TV/DVD, the bathroom and the washing machine.

Bournemouth is a vibrant university town set in beautiful natural surroundings. The local sandy beaches are great in the summer, while the nearby New Forest National Park is glorious all year. Bournemouth town centre has a wide range of independent shops as well as the big names.

ITTC organises a busy leisure program for teachers. During the week, there are free events in and around the centre, including lectures, reviews, singing evenings and concerts. At the weekend, the school organises trips to London, Bath, Cambridge and other popular destinations.

The CELTA and DELTA are highly intensive courses and leave little time for leisure.
