The Institute of Higher Education Torre di Babele works in the field of teaching Italian to foreigners and training since 1984 and is accredited as an educational body by the Ministry of Education, University and Research.
From June 2001, the school is also an authorized examination center for DITALS (Certificate in Teaching Italian to Foreigners) of the Università per Stranieri di Siena.
Training courses differ in type and lenght and contribute to the achievement of all or part of the prerequisites needed to sit for the DITALS examination.
The courses are accredited and monitored by the DITALS Center at the Università per Stranieri di Siena - with which our school has been collaborating for over ten years now.
Since 2008, our training and refresher courses are part of the Comenius-Grundtvig database for in-service training. In 2014, the previous Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) has been replaced by the new Erasmus plus. Teachers from the EU member states, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Macedonia and Turkey, may apply for Erasmus Plus funding to participate in our training and refresher courses for teachers of Italian as a foreign language. The scholarship generally covers tuition fees for the course, travel and accommodation costs.
