We do this through facilitating informal professional discussion, regular seminars, the maintenance of a web site for TESOL Teacher Education and publications.
QuiTE Promotes Professional Quality and Integrity in TESOL Teacher Education, Training and Development
QuiTE is a voluntary, not-for-profit association, which brings together teacher educators and trainers in all TESOL fields, regardless of whether they are working for private providers, colleges of further education or universities.
Please note that QuiTE is not a course accrediting body.
Quality in TESOL Education
We have developed a cross-sectoral and, in time, we intend, an international membership. It is our belief that TESOL is a vitally important area both in terms of enabling non-English speaking communities here in the UK to develop their social and employment skills and also since it forms a major item of overseas income generation.
QuiTE draws on the BATQI code of practice for its ethical basis and brings together all those who strive for the promotion of quality in TESOL educational training and development.
We aim to provide a forum for the development of dialogues among the various sectors of the profession. On our committee there are representatives from a wide range of sectors here in the UK.
QuiTE was formed in 2001 after the dissolution of both IELTDHE (Institute for English Language Teacher Development in Higher Education) and BATQI (British Association of TESOL Qualifying Institutions).
