ITS affiliation with the ICF
International Teaching Seminars was the first training organisation in Europe to be able to offer an International Coach Federation (ICF) Accredited Coach Training Programme (ACTP). The ICF recognises a very small number of organisations worldwide. This is because it regulates and operates the most comprehensive and rigorous accreditation process for training deliverers worldwide. ITS is part of this esteemed group.
The Highest standards
The ICF represents the highest standards in Coaching. ICF accreditation is your guarantee of world class Coaching training. To receive its accreditation, ITS went through a strenuous year long application process. Every element of our International Coaching Programme was assessed in detail by the ICF. This entailed a combination of written submissions, video assessment of the programme and scrutiny of your trainers. Every three years this entire process is repeated so you can be sure quality is maintained and regularly reviewed.
