International TEFL Academy (ITA) staff, students, and alumni are proud that ITA has received multiple awards & widespread recognition as one of the best TEFL schools in the world for offering TEFL certification for teaching English abroad & teaching English online. In January 2024, ITA was recognized for the sixth year running as the "Top Rated Organization for TEFL Course Certification" for 2023 by GoAbroad.com. Before the category was discontinued, ITA had also been recognized as the "Top Online Program for TEFL Certification" for five years straight up until 2022. 

GoAbroad.com announced ITA's recognition in a statement revealing its annual "Top Rated Organizations & Programs" list for the highest-rated international study, work, and volunteer abroad opportunities, based on user reviews from the previous year.

"If you’re ready to make moves this year (or even if you’re looking ahead to 2025!), our Top Rated Providers of 2023 is a great place to start," GoAbroad.com said in the statement.

Other organizations named top-rated in their categories, included AIFS Abroad (study abroad), Máximo Nivel (language school), International Volunteer HQ (volunteer abroad), and Pacific Discovery (gap year provider). 

"As an organization dedicated to helping people live their dream of teaching abroad and seeing the world, we're very proud of this honor," said Bruce Jones, Founder and CEO of International TEFL Academy. "It's especially meaningful that actual students determine these listings - the people taking the initiative to go abroad and make a difference, even during the COVID-19 pandemic at the beginning of this decade, which had obviously presented massive challenges to all of us in the past few years."

In June 2023, International TEFL Academy also won the prestigious GoAbroad.com's People's Choice Award for the third year in a row after being voted Best Education Organization by study abroad professionals, alumni, and students. ITA also won the People's Choice Award in 2018, becoming the first TEFL certification school to win the distinction. (TEFL stands for teaching English as a foreign language.) In addition, ITA alumnus Jack Ross' video, "Thank you Vietnam" won the 2020 GoAbroad.com Innovative Student Video Award.
