About the International Diploma of Language Teaching Management
Globally, the field of language teaching is expanding rapidly. This rapid expansion has not only created a demand for language teachers but also a demand for managers of language teaching centres and organisations. As in many other fields, managers are often recruited from outstanding employees in the organisation. In many cases these employees are teachers. While these teacher-managers are often excellent teachers, they may not always be successful or well prepared managers.
The International Diploma in Language Teaching Management (IDLTM) is designed to address this need. IDLTM enables language teaching professionals to apply insights and skills derived from management theory and practice to their work as managers in language teaching organisations.
