About the TESOL Centres in Sydney, Australia

The Australian Teacher Training Centre in Sydney has been conducting training courses in teaching English as a Foreign Language since 1982. In 1983, the centre became the first in Australia to offer courses leading to University of Cambridge Certificates and Diplomas, such as the CELTA and Delta, in this field.

The centre now trains over 200 English language teachers each year on a range of programs and has mounted special courses for educational organisations and institutions and for other Cambridge centres in the Asian region, as well as universities within Australia.

The tutors who lead the courses are highly experienced in a range of teaching and teacher training contexts, both in Australia and overseas. The training team includes the Chief Assessor for Australia for the Cambridge Certificate and Diploma. All tutors hold qualifications in the fields of Applied Linguistics or English Language Teaching.

Sydney and Surroundings

Sydney is Australia's biggest city, with a population of over four million people. It's located on the shores of the harbour and several spectacular beaches, such as the famous Bondi, Coogee, Tamarama and Bronte. The centre of the city is a buzzing metropolis, filled with modern bars, international cuisine and entertainment. The world-famous Kings Cross district is a huge hit for party-goers, and the city is home to two national league football teams, two Australian Rules football teams, and several rubgy league and union sides.

Just south of the city sits the draw-dropping Royal National Park, acres of untouched bushland and harsh, white cliffs dropping off into the gleaming Tasman Sea. The city is also home to several rivers and nature reserves, and boasts a huge international airport with flights to anywhere in the country and the world.

The best thing about the TESOL training centre is that it's located in the dead centre of the city, right above Wynyard train station, with connections to all of Sydney's suburbs. It's around the corner from the famous Queen Victoria Building and Pitt Street Mall, and a shirt walk from the ferry port at Circular Quay.
