Why is ITU exclusively
for teachers?

Teachers, the architects of our future, shoulder the profound responsibility of shaping both minds and society. Such a vital role demands an unwavering commitment to their continuous professional growth and development. This commitment is precisely why International Teachers University (ITU) proudly stands as a dedicated institution exclusively for teachers.

Traditionally, conversations surrounding teacher education have predominantly focused on student outcomes. However, at ITU, we shift this narrative to center on teachers' fulfillment. So that teachers can engage with their profession on a deeper level, finding fulfillment in every class they teach.
