In today's Knowledge Age, teachers are change-agents who are expected to lead reforms in curriculums, in students and in communities. The rapid rate of knowledge obsolescence requires teachers to become lifelong learners. ITARI understands that the quality of teachers is very critical for all educational institutions and helps bridge the gap between teaching and research. ITARI was inaugurated on 1st Dec 2009, by Mr. Gavin Newsom, Mayor of San Francisco, California, U.S.A.
ITARI is the first training institute in India to offer a professional teacher training programme in International Education fully accredited by a British University. The Professional Graduate Diploma in International Education will be offered in collaboration with Keele University (UK). Keele is a leading campus university situated centrally in the UK.
