Due to the closeness of the start date, and the amount of time required to get a work visa for Turkey, we can only accept applications from teachers already working in Turkey who have a work visa and an ikamet. We can also only accept applications from teachers with a recognised EFL qualification (CELTA, Trinity Cert, TESOL...) and a degree. At least one year's experience post CELTA prefered.

Conditions: salaries range from $950-$1350, paid in Turkish lira, 26 hours a week teaching, 2 consecutive days off per week, 4 weeks paid holiday per year (12 month contracts). Perks include meal tickets each month and equivalent of London return airfare at end of contract.

The school has good resources, with a computer room, projectors in several classes and well-stocked teachers' bookshelves. General English, business English and Young Learners classes are taught at the school. Some classes are in companies, but transport is provided for these.

Accommodation is not included, but help can be given in finding a place to live.

Due to numbers of candidates, we cannot guarantee that all applications will get a reply

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


A lesson plan is a complete guide for teaching a lesson. It is a step-by-step guide that drafts the teacher's targets for what the students will accomplish that day. Creating a lesson plan involves setting goals, developing activities, and determining the materials that will be used. It helps you to stay on track, to prepare for every step of the lesson. It provides guidance for a substitute. And it helps you save time in the future.As a result of this unit, I learned (Actually, I reviewed.), the varied and challenging role a teacher plays in a classroom, as well as the different learners a teacher might encounter. Teaching adults is different from teaching younger students. I have encountered both! Group size or individuals along with varying ability/motivational levels may greatly affect lesson design. Finally, the review of Teaching Methods was excellent.
