Quality Endorsement of Product as part of the NEAS Community Endorsements

Congratulations to IELTS – IDP Australia on achieving NEAS Quality Endorsement of the IELTS Teacher Training Program. The IELTS Teacher Training Program is the first Product to be Quality Endorsed as part of NEAS’ new Quality Products and Services initiative. This Endorsement, underpinned by a set of Quality Principles (Quality Area K) provides a platform for industry recognition of high-quality products and services that benefit the ELT community.

The free IELTS Teacher Training Program has been developed by IDP IELTS for teachers to better understand the IELTS assessment criteria via an online learning platform. Interactive exercises engage teachers, enhancing teaching performance in language schools. The program was developed based on needs identified through rigorous, peer-reviewed academic research, and internal quality control and quality assurance processes draw largely from feedback and data generated by program participants themselves.

If you believe your business offers a product or service that would be eligible for Quality Endorsement, or if you wish to nominate a Quality product or service for NEAS recognition, please contact
