Employment and Job Counselling
During the course, especially during the CELTA course, there is time devoted to provide you with useful information about how, where and when to look for teaching work after the course in South Africa and all around the world. The CELTA qualification is the most prestigious and the most well-known of all the TEFL courses, and is recognised all over the world, not only in South Africa. This mean that with the CELTA qualification, numerous TEFL job opportunities are available all over the world.
We encourage trainees to keep in touch with us after they have finished their course, either so we can advise them on how to go on to do the DELTA course, or give advice on finding work.

Johannesburg and Surroundings
One of the largest cities in South Africa, Johannesburg is a popular location for many to take the CELTA course. Johannesburg offers some spectacular city skylines, diverse cultures, and a great choice of attractions to visit, whether it's a trip to one of the African markets where you can find beautiful and intricate craft-work, a day out to Soweto, a smaller but adventurous city in the suburbs, or a safari tour in the Cradle of Humankind. Johannesburg is about 50 km away from the 1200 hectare reserve, Cradle of Humankind - a famous World Heritage Site where you have the chance to take a guided tour to see animals in their natural habitat, and interact with lion cubs!
Some social activities are organised by the teacher training centre in Johannesburg, such as visits to the Johannesburg Zoo, to Gold Reef City theme park, to Soweto a town in the outskirts of Johannesburg, to the Crocodile Farm, the Cullinan Diamond Mine and the Motecasino Bird Gardens.
