TESOL / TEFL Certification in The Philippines: Take the CELTA in Cebu

The Philippines boast some of the friendliest people in the world. As well as a huge variety of plants, wildlife, volcanoes, waterfalls and beautiful landscapes. Now you can go there and train to become an English teacher through the CELTA course in Cebu. This is all due thanks to an energetic and experienced team headed up by teacher trainer Dave Fox. Experienced in running CELTAs in Japan and Australia, Dave’s team are well equipped to give their trainees everything they need to train well and be effective teachers.

A strength of the language centre, where the CELTA training is based in Cebu, is that it runs classes for adult students from countries around the world including Japan, Thailand, Vietnam and Russia, so trainees get a lot of students to teach while on their teacher training course. This is what is so special about the CELTA programme. Nothing beats learning by doing.

Getting English Teaching Jobs in The Philippines and Asia

English teaching jobs are also commonly found in Manila, although there are many opportunities to teach English as a foreign language in many cities throughout the country. Hiring goes throughout the year. Although there are a large number of English teaching jobs, there are also many English-speaking Filipinos who are able to fill these positions, which evens out the demand.

The Philippines is a great hub for training and preparing your next step as a newly qualified teacher. The tutors on the course will advise you and have information about jobs in the area or in neighbouring countries through their networks.

What Makes CELTA the Best English English Teacher Training Course?

One of the most important features of the CELTA course is the face to face component. CELTA candidates, from very early on in the course, begin to teach classes. The CELTA trainers themselves practise what they preach. They teach in ways that demonstrate the deep connection to the learner as a human being which underpins a lot of pedagogy on the CELTA programme. Putting these activities together with the chance to observe teachers in action sets the CELTA programme apart.
