TTC Certificates of International Teaching

*At the PTC, we aim to meet the changing needs of international schools. We will continue to add, revise, and enhance course options based on research, and the feedback we receive from our schools.
With this flexibility in mind, we have created two certificates for international teachers:

  1. Certificate of International Teaching
  2. Certificate of Advanced International Teaching

We have also added two-day institutes during the school year.


How can I earn a certificate?

Certificate of International Teaching

Participants must complete four TTC courses. Five-day courses taken during June and July are considered to be full courses. Two-day institutes offered during the school year are considered to be half courses. It is now possible to earn a certificate in one school year!
