Life after CELTA – Where are they now?

We recently caught up with some of our CELTA graduates to find out a little about life after CELTA. 

Here’s what they had to say:


Giulia – now teaching in northern Italy

“Taking the CELTA course has been a turning point in my life. I loved the course and enjoyed teaching a lot more than I would have thought. After the course I moved to Italy, my home country, and within a few months I had several private customers and I had been contacted by several English schools. I didn’t realise there would be so much request for qualified English teachers. Currently, I’m working in a language school twice a week and I’m working with my own students the rest of the week. Having a small child, I prefer the flexibility of managing the schedule, however, I could work full time for the school if I wanted. I also do “breakfast” and “aperitif” in English at a local cafè/bar from time to time and clients love it! CELTA has opened up plenty of opportunities in my country where finding work would have been difficult. I love teaching and my students are always enthusiastic about my lessons which is really rewarding.”

 


Dan – now teaching in Galicia, Spain

“Enrolling on the CELTA course and entering the TEFL world has been an unforgettable experience. I enjoyed the course itself which was really helped by the fact the tutors were extremely professional and loved what they were doing. Once I finished the course, I started teaching at a local language school in Cambridge before moving abroad to Santiago de Compostela in the Galician region of Spain. Here, I have been able to sample some of the best food I have ever eaten and been able to develop my own language skills. I currently work at a fantastic language school within a very reputable company that allows you to work anywhere in the world. The satisfaction you gain from teaching is above that of any profession I have worked before and it is a job that you can fall in love with.”
