International TEFL Academy Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies

ITA has Received the Prestigious Distinction for Four Consecutive Years 

Inc. Magazine announced today that the International TEFL Academy has been named one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. 

The Inc. 5000 list spotlights the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment - its independent small businesses. 

Founded in 2010, International TEFL Academy (ITA) is the world leader in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification, enabling students to travel the world while teaching English. ITA has trained nearly 40,000 people from all backgrounds - with alumni teaching English in more than 80 countries and online. 

“ITA’s sustained growth - and inclusion on this prestigious list for the past four years - reflects the strong reputation we’ve built in the industry through the highest quality of instruction and unmatched personalized advising,” said Bruce Jones, president and co-founder of ITA. “Every colleague at ITA is a passionate world traveler, and we take pride in changing others’ lives through international travel.”

ITA’s inclusion on the list this year is an even more remarkable achievement in the face of challenges the travel industry faced in 2020. 

“Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”

In addition to inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list, ITA has received numerous awards and accolades, including being named the #1 Best U.S. TEFL Course and Best Online TEFL Course by Goabroad.com. To learn more about teaching English abroad or online, visit www.internationalteflacademy.com
