About UTP

We believe that in the countries where we work, there is a specific need for well-trained, professional English teachers. These English teachers pursue excellence in the classroom as a central part of their life overseas. On a platform of educational credibility and classroom quality, we can establish a lasting structure where deep relationships can be built.

Core Values


ELIC is committed to providing the best professional training possible. Each UTP teacher receives both cross-cultural and classroom training from Wheaton College including a graduate-level TESOL certificate. ELIC also provides teaching resources online and on every campus in order to help teachers thrive and be successful. ELIC seeks to match your unique gifts by offering a variety of teaching opportunities.


ELIC values diverse and thriving teams. Living and working alongside a community of singles, couples, and families from a variety of backgrounds is an integral part of the University Teaching Program. Team members provide emotional and spiritual support and encouragement, and meet regularly for academic planning and collaboration.

Professional Development

ELIC provides multiple opportunities for professional development. Through ELIC's partnership with Wheaton College you have the opportunity to earn a tuition-reduced MA in TESOL and Intercultural Studies.
