English Teacher Training Brighton
About the Training Centre in Brighton & Hove
The teacher training centre in Brighton & Hove, established in 1972, is a friendly, medium-sized school not far from the city centre and next to the residential area where most of our homestay is located. It is located 10 minutes from Brighton centre by bus and is close to a local shopping area called George Street, which has all the shops and facilities needed for everyday living including banks, pharmacies, cafes, bars, mobile phone shops, travel agents and exchange bureaus.
There are many other facilities and attractions close to the teacher training centre. The beach is only eight minutes’ walk away, with the lovely Hove lawns seafront promenade just 12 minutes away. Hove railway station, which has direct services to central London, is only a 15-minute walk away. It is also right beside one of the nicest residential zones in Brighton: an area named “Poets’ Corner”. Homestay accommodation can usually be arranged, which could be between two and 25 minutes’ walking distance from the school. Sometimes during the busy summer season it can be a little further but never more than a 15-minute bus journey away.

Employment and Job Counselling
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 Brighton & Hove 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. This mean that with the CELTA qualification, numerous TEFL job opportunities are available all over the world.
The school can offer advice on how to look for work, local employment agencies and issues such as pay and tax.
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.

As a StudyCELTA trainee, you will be able to sign up for free to our TEFL jobs website www.teflwork.com. TEFLwork is a platform only for qualified English teachers and will allow you to find work both at home and abroad with your newly gained CELTA certificate.
For any students who are not locally resident, we can help organise homestay accommodation in the immediate neighbourhood around the school. We only work with host families who are within a 25 minute walk of the school (or a very short bus ride) and we are very very selective about our hosts and organise them directly and not via an agent. We can also help students organise accommodation in the private student residences in central Brighton.
Please note: All accommodation options are subject to availability and will be confirmed by the Training Centre Brighton & Hove once you have gone through the application process.

Brighton & Hove and Surroundings
Brighton & Hove is the UK’s most famous and cosmopolitan seaside holiday resort and one of the UK’s most popular cities for international students. The city is famous for its Royal Palace, called the Royal Pavilion, and its two piers. The campus is located within walking distance of Hove station.
It hosts the Brighton Festival every May, which is England’s largest Arts festival. A major tourist destination for British and international visitors, it is a great place to be during the summer months and all year round.
Brighton is also one of the UK’s most popular destinations for international students. It has two universities and there are over 35,000 students in the city. This makes the population one of the youngest in the UK so there are many services, shops and restaurants available for students.
With a population of 250,000 Brighton & Hove is also the perfect size – large enough to have all the facilities and services you need, but small enough to get to know quickly if you are staying for a short time.
Our city has two names because many years ago Brighton & Hove were two separate places, but they have grown to become one. Brighton is the eastern part, and Hove is the western part.
Brighton was just a fishing village until 1787 when Prince George, then Prince of Wales, decided to build a spectacular palace by the sea. The Brighton Pavilion was built over the next 20 years and remains one of the UK’s most famous and distinctive buildings. Brighton then became home to many noble and rich families for the summer months and you will find Brighton mentioned in Jane Austen’s novels. Brighton has also featured in many other books and films, including Graham Greene’s novel Brighton Rock and the classic ‘mod’ film Quadrophenia.
