On September 15 2014 International House London welcomed esteemed guests from the National Institute of International Education (NIIED) in Seoul.

Delegates from NIIED’s EPIK (English programme in Korea) attended a ceremony in which an agreement recognising International House London as an approved provider of English teachers for the NIIED’s EPIK teaching programme was signed.

EPIK places native level English teachers in public schools to strengthen practical English education for primary and secondary students. It works to improve the quality of English teaching in Korea by ensuring teachers of English receive the best quality training and support.

NIIED have selected International House London as we are the founder of CELTA which is widely recognised as the world’s most prestigious teacher training qualification.
