About the Trainers in Cape Town

All CELTA and Delta trainers at both the CBD and Sea Point campuses 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 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.

Accommodation CBD Campus


Homestay is a popular form of accommodation as it provides an insight into the South African life-style. Two thirds of the students requiring accommodation stay with host-families.

South African people are known for their hospitality, and the host families particularly enjoy meeting people from around the world and making students feel part of the family. The host-family may be a single woman, a single-parent family, a young family, a working couple or a retired couple.

The accommodation officer carefully chooses families and inspects them once a year.

Price per week from $175 USD for shared double/twin room, from $220 USD for private single room.


Especially for older students and for those who want to enjoy more comfort at a host-family, we recommend this accommodation option. Homestay-Plus is generally of a higher standard than Homestay and offers a private bathroom.

Price per week from $220 USD for double/twin room, from $270 USD for private single room.

Cape Town and Surroundings

With world heritage sites on hand such as Robben Island and world-famous attractions such as Table Mountain, Cape Town is regarded as one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the world.

The "Mediterranean-style" climate makes Cape Town mild all year round. As the seasons are reversed in the Southern Hemisphere, the city is a warm destination from November to March.

Candidates can take part in a safari starting from Cape Town or visit one of the country’s many national parks to see the spectacular Big Five. The city is the ideal location for many outdoor sports, including surfing, golfing, horseback-riding, whale-watching, shark-diving, bungee-jumping, beach-volleyball and more.

Cape Town is a cosmopolitan city with a colourful and vibrant mix of many different cultures, religions and people. With 3 major universities, it also attracts a high number of young people. Cape Town offers museums, theatres, cinema complexes, shopping malls, entertainment areas, vibrant markets and beautiful gardens.
