This program is an online/on-site combination course.  The online section can start any day and comes with a tutor.  You can work at your own pace–fast or slowly.  As an average, the online part takes about four weeks with daily study; it takes about double the time if you only study on weekends.  If you register for teaching practice and haven’t finished the online part yet, you may change the date of your teaching practice.

Teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) is a big business all over India. There are plenty of English-teaching positions in Ahmedabad and in other major cities such as Vadodara, Surat, Mumbai, Delhi, etc. Even the Private English Medium Schools, IELTS centres, universities and coaching institutes hire excellent TEFL certification graduates from our course if teachers are needed.  As one of the largest cities of India, Ahmedabad also has most of the English-teaching job opportunities. Many of those jobs involve adults in business or students at private language schools.

Compensation for teachers in India varies widely and depends on your qualification, the number of hours you teach per week, and the length of your contract. Hourly salaries run around INR 350 to 1000 per hour in various institutes of Ahmedabad and  INR 1000 to 2500 per hour in metro cities such as Mumbai and Delhi.

  • Average monthly salary: INR 30,000 to INR 75,000
  • Average cost of living: INR 25,000 to INR 50,000
  • Monthly bonus: INR 5000 to 25,000

Benefits may include transportation reimbursement, insurance, free lunches and a housing stipend.   Many reputed institutions also provide paid vacations. Make sure you clarify everything with your employer before starting to work and sign a contract. You will usually have one month of vacation unless you work at a school.  In that case, you will probably get more than a month of vacations.   If you are hired in a well-established institution with 20 employees or more, you also get the benefit of PF (Provident Fund), one of the most beneficial and popular investment schemes for salaried personnel in India under the control of the Indian Government.

In order to improve education in India, motivated, highly educated teachers are required.  There are many volunteers who have the willingness to put up a little effort and change things as much as they can.  This is not the type of teachers India needs because they do not have the proper qualification.

iTTi is graduating teachers who can really make a difference in Indian schools—at least in their chosen field–English.  Becoming familiarized with the latest teaching methods, our TEFL teachers learn to provide a classroom environment for exploration, thinking, reflection, and interaction; they play the role of facilitators, helping students become expert learners.  Our TEFL graduates design the learning environment to support and challenge the student’s thinking and take the initiative to steer the learning experience to where the students want to actually create value.  If you like to truly support Indian education, join us and become the best teacher you can be in our training program.  Your prospective Indian students will be grateful for that.


India is a gem of a country. Its Unity in Diversity is a great example to the world. It has been an education hub for centuries with universities such as Nalanda and Takshashila.   Also known as the Republic of India, it is the seventh largest country by area, and with more than 1.3 billion people, it is the second most populous country as well as the most populous democracy in the world.

India has four metro cities: Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata. After these, there are several more emerging metro cities.  Ahmedabad is one of them.  In western India, Ahmedabad is the largest city in the state of Gujarat. The Sabarmati River runs through its centre. On the western bank is the Gandhi Ashram at Sabarmati, which displays the spiritual leader’s living quarters and artefacts. Across the river, the Calico Museum of Textiles, once a cloth merchant’s mansion, has a significant collection of antique and modern fabrics.

From the British and Maratha rule and India’s freedom struggle, to transforming into an urban metropolis, a textile and a world-class education hub, Ahmedabad has established itself on all fronts. This 606-year old Walled City has recently been registered as UNESCO World Heritage Site, thus becoming India’s first-ever world heritage city. Here we bring you some more reasons to why you should visit Ahmedabad.

Reason 1

The home of the “Father of the Nation”

Ahmedabad is the place where the ‘Father of the Nation’, Mahatma Gandhi started India’s freedom struggle. Mahatma Gandhi’s home was Sabarmati Ashram, nestled on the banks of Sabarmati River.  It was here that he led and managed the course of the Indian Independence movement for a long time. This place holds a great importance in the history of India, and many visitors come here to catch a glimpse into the life and times of Gandhi.

Reason 2

A haven for local festivals

Ahmedabad would be incomplete without its festivals. In fact, the festivals are the heartbeat of this beautiful city – from the Navratri celebration, which is almost a nine-day affair and involves music, garba dancing and most importantly Durga Pooja, to the  International Kite festival, also called Uttarayan, where the skyline is embellished with colourful kites soaring to the sky. An unmissable festival is the annual Rath Yatra of Lord Jagannath held at the Jagannath Temple and involves procession that is led by the decorated chariots.


Reason 3

Hub for food lovers

The Gujarati Cuisine is indeed loved by all the people, throughout India. The Dhoklas, Khakras and Fafras -Jalebi are indeed the most famous names, we are all familiar with. But, in Ahmedabad, you can enjoy eating your other favorites like the khandvi rolls, dal vada, aloo poha, Chinese bhel, mini samosa, chana jor garam and not to forget the Gujarati Thali. You can savor the tastes of Gujarat in Ahmedabad at anytime and anywhere including the famous Manek Chowk, Khaau Gali and the Law Garden.

Reason 4

Art, history and culture hub

History, art and culture lovers should set their sights on the museums and art galleries in Ahmedabad as they portray the city’s rich and amazing past. A must-visit museum in Ahmedabad is the Calico Museum of Textiles, which is one of its kind in India and depicts the rich textile history through a vast collection of antique textiles unique to India. To explore the artsy side of the city, Shreyas Folk Art Museum depicts the regional art and culture.
