Having researched numerous TEFL courses I eventually decided on doing the CELTA in Cape Town, although a 4-week intensive course seemed a little daunting.
It was a total eye opener on how little I knew about teaching, worth while for those who are looking for a qualification that stand out from the rest! The workload was “heavy” but manageable, however this qualification is not meant for those who like to sleep 8 hrs per night!
The staff and trainers was absolutely fabulous, and supported us all the way. Class numbers were small with staff spending quality time with students. I received numerous work offers in Europe. On the other side of the coin, you will never become rich, but teaching provides a lot of satisfaction. Language schools underestimate the value of the CELTA vs. the hourly pay rate they offer to teachers. Nevertheless, you can not go wrong with this qualification.

About the Trainers in Cape Town:
All CELTA (and DELTA) trainers in Cape Town have been accepted by UCLES after having undergone an extensive trainer-in-training programme. Tutors are all practising teachers of English who divide their time between teaching and teacher training. They are highly qualified and experienced both as teachers and trainers and themselves take part in ongoing training programmes, such as attending TEFL conferences and in-house development sessions, in order to keep abreast of the cutting edge of the TESOL profession.
The tutors have worked internationally and they bring a wide range of key experience, qualifications and knowledge to the TESOL course. All CELTA (and DELTA) trainers undergo a rigorous selection and training process that is monitored by the University of Cambridge.
