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 2022, ITA was recognized for the fourth year running as the "Top Rated Organization for TEFL Certification" and "Top Online Program for TEFL Certification" for 2021 by GoAbroad.com.
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.
"We’re so excited to share the most extensively rated organizations and online programs on GoAbroad.com from 2021 and to recognize all our partners who continue to adapt and innovate during one of the most turbulent periods in the history of international travel," Goabroad.com said in the statement.
Other organizations named top-rated in their categories, included GVI (study abroad and volunteer abroad), That's Mandarin (language school), 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 COVID-19, which has obviously presented massive challenges to all of us."
In June 2021, International TEFL Academy also won the prestigious GoAbroad.com's People's Choice Award after being voted Best Education Organization by study abroad professionals, alumni, and students. ITA also won the People's Choice Award in 2018, when it became 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.
