bespoke / tailor made courses

We have the experience and resources to develop bespoke teacher training courses to meet your or your school’s needs. As our trainers are recognised “formadores qualificados”, this also means that we run courses for APPI and official state training centres (Centros de Formação).

  • "Of all the teacher training sessions I have attended throughout the past years, those hosted by International House have undoubtedly made a relevant impact on my teaching practices. The goals set are always clear and achievable, the sessions are impeccably planned, creative material and effective resources are used and the teacher trainers easily create an engaging environment. Moreover, these sessions are always an excellent opportunity to refresh my language skills and to challenge my teaching routines."

  • "Training sessions by International House provided reinforcement, new ideas that are applicable on your teaching. Besides improving my English skills, they helped me carry out my workload in a more effective and practical way."
