Partnership in LearningNever before has the need for high quality media education and training been valued by the Church as now.
The opportunities are increasing weekly and more and more media professionals find themselves called on to share their skills with others. At the same time training for trainers is harder to find. Now, the International Communication Training Institute is able to offer you the opportunity to develop your training and teaching skills in partnership with other like-minded agencies and individuals. Each one committed to excellence in training.
What is ICTI?The International Communication Training Institute is a division of ICMC formed by members who have covenanted to work together to:
- Identify training needs and offer appropriate solutions
- Promote and facilitate quality training for organisational and personal development
- Encourage the sharing of curriculum and training resources
- Develop and monitor common standards
- Evaluate outcomes and award certificates to agreed standards
- Provide training for trainers
Validation and AuthorisationICTI is an accrediting body rather than a training group. It does not normally provide training courses itself - leaving that in the capable hands of its members. ICTI's role is to provide a consistency of standards for those working in each region and discipline. Working through panels of independent assessors with a knowledge of the region, ICTI is developing procedures to simplify this approach.
HistoryICTI has grown from the need for integrated communication education and training around the world. ICTI coordinates training delivered in-country or by distance-learning. A first meeting in Oxford in 1996 brought media agencies together and set the stage for partnership together. ICTI was formally launched in December 1997. ICTI members are cooperating to set common standards and deliver cost-effective open learning approaches to media education.
CouncilThe International Communication Training Institute is managed by the own Executive Director advised by the Council on behalf of its members. The Council is responsible to the board of ICMC Ltd to which presents an annual report and accounts. The ICTI Council comprises a maximum of nine members, one of which must be a nominee of the board of ICMC Ltd. ICMC Ltd is the UK non-profit body which takes responsibility for ICTI.
