My previous career involved writing and training within the Human Resources arena. At fifty six years old, I found the thought of continuing in the HR field for another ten to fifteen years extremely depressing!
The CELTA course has quite literally changed my life! Yes, it was one of the most challenging and intense courses I have ever done, but the personal rewards have been both immense and immediate.
I graduated on Friday 10 August 2012, contacted all the language schools in Wellington on Monday 13 August, and was working as a reliever the very next day!
Since then I have worked almost constantly and I am absolutely loving my new career.
Working with lovely students from around the world, I’ve regained a real sense of purpose and achievement – and I have the job satisfaction I’ve always dreamed of.
I thoroughly recommend the CELTA course. You will be challenged, you will be stressed, you may be up until 2am writing lesson plans… but I promise you, it will be worth it.
