Get your career off to a good start in Teaching English as a Foreign Language

Teaching English as a foreign language is an exciting and rewarding career, but to get the best out of it you need to choose your teacher training course well.

Definitely the best way to get your career off to a good start is with a recognised teaching qualification.

Today, most professionals in ELT would agree that the two initial certificates that stand out are:

Both these qualifications are accepted by the British Council in accredited language schools in the UK and also in British Council English schools around the world.

They are also accredited by the UK official Qualifications Authority (QCA) as a level 5 qualification. This is the same level as a foundation degree or a higher education diploma

A CELTA or TRINITY Cert TESOL qualification will give you the basic skills and knowledge to start your career in teaching.

  • They will give you a solid foundation to develop as a professional.
  • You will have a qualification to teach English as a foreign language which schools around the world will recognise.
