Course Information

Who’s it for?

Who’s it for? People with a B2+ level of English who want to start teaching English language, or who want to develop their English teaching skills.


You’ll be attached to a group of teacher trainees on a CELTA course at ITTC, teaching real overseas students from week one, and you’ll have the same course content, except that it won’t be a problem if you make a few little errors in your own English.

In four weeks, you should acquire the skills, knowledge and experience to teach with confidence, and get the satisfaction of knowing you’re doing a great job for your students.
