In the Teacher Portal, you can. It’s our mission to build an inclusive and accessible community of teachers from all over the world who can exchange ideas freely and easily. We know just how much we can learn from each other and how important this is for teachers. 

Okay, just a little bit about us

The Teacher Portal is brought to you by International House London, leaders in language teaching, testing, and teacher training for 70 years. IH London is the birth-place of CELTA, and for decades we have pioneered innovation in teacher development. 

We believe in:
