ITA Teachers Accreditation
ITA Accreditation Program
Better Teachers, Better Education
At the ITA, we ask a very honest question: “Can you teach?”, go to university, get a degree and lecture students. If you want to be a more than that, invest in your future with the ITA Accreditation Process and begin your self-guided journey to becoming more than a teacher.
