ITEA is the only leading international teacher and support staff certification programme which acknowledges:
The objective of ITEA is to give recognition to educators and support staff when they use technology with their learners.
The certification process is based on a candidate working through a series of Units, each with a credit rating, producing evidence to prove competency against the ITEA framework.
Candidates seeking accreditation are enrolled via an ITEA Approved Centre and are supported by trained ITEA Assessors working within the Centre.
Additionally, units can be submitted via the website for moderation and accreditation.
The Unit evidence is not exam-based but encourages a portfolio of evidence approach. Therefore, the candidate submits a short report of their learning and teaching intervention with copies of the related resources to their assigned ITEA Assessor. Observation reports of lessons can also be used as evidence.
Candidates submit evidence electronically.
Candidates progress through the Foundation ITEA, Intermediate ITEA and Advanced ITEA, according to the number of Units and the number of Credits successfully completed.
The ITEA programme is freely available, flexible, achievable and increases motivation with an easy to understand structure and a manageable workload. Consequently there are a number of easily identifiable benefits of educators undertaking the certification programme. These are as follows:
ITEA is now undertaken by Candidates around the world on every continent. As well as in the UK, ITEA is being delivered successfully in the Middle East, parts of the Far East, the USA and parts of Latin America.
