The facilities were excellent, everything I needed during the course was provided.
The tutors were excellent, very helpful and supportive.
The CELTA has been a great addition to my skill set and personal experience. It’s opened up many new paths for me.
My advice to others thinking of taking the CELTA would be to definitely keep the course as your main focus for its duration, be supportive and be supported by your classmates and tutors. Have fun and enjoy the learning process!
I hope to gain experience as an English Teacher in Cape Town, perhaps travelling overseas to work in the Far East sometime in the future.

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.
