Have you thought about travelling around the world and teaching English abroad?
The Language Centre's popular CELTA Teacher training courses are running in Easter and Summer this year:
· Monday 20 March – Thursday 13 April (Easter course)
· Monday 3 July – Friday 28 July (Summer course)
Whether you are considering a career in English language teaching or you’re planning to teach while traveling, having a highly valued qualification that’s trusted by employers, language schools and governments around the world will give you the essential toolkit to succeed.
CELTA is administered by the University of Cambridge and is the required qualification for many teaching positions around the world. Teaching practice is an integral part of this qualification and you will be teaching from the first day of your course.
Great news, you could be eligible for financial support towards the CELTA tuition fee!
£1,435 may be available in the form of Advanced Learner Loans from the Skills Funding Agency. The maximum loan is £1,417 and most UK nationals and residents aged 19 years and above should qualify. Eligibility doesn’t depend on income and there are no credit checks – loans have to be repaid when you have completed the course and are earning a specified amount (currently £21,000 p.a.).
A list of eligibility criteria is available – only eligible applicants who meet the course entry requirements will be able to receive the loan.
