Sometimes referred to in French as Fédération internationale des associations de professeurs and in English as International Federation of Institutors Associations. Represented teachers in infant and primary schools. Closely linked from 1952 with H-XD1999 - Fédération internationale des professeurs de l'enseignement secondaire officiel (FIPESO), when, jointly with H-XH0175 - World Organization of the Teaching Profession (WOTP), they were instrumental in setting up H-XA3491 - World Confederation of Organizations of the Teaching Profession (WCOTP). IFTA and FIPESCO became constituent federations of WCOTP, which itself later merged with H-XC1919 - International Federation of Free Teachers' Unions (IFFTU) to form B-XB1111 - Education International (EI). Following decision of 10 Oct 1993, Geneva (Switzerland), IFTA ceased to have affiliates or activities as from 31 Dec 1993, when it merged with Education International. Dissolution took legal effect 1 Jul 1995, following gradually taking over of activities.
