Help for Jobs
The course tutors and staff are able to provide a great deal of useful job and career advice during and after the CELTA course. These services include:
- 3 course hours dedicated to the job search, CV writing, and finding the right schools
- Personalized job hunting tutorial after the first week of the course
- Recommendations of "match" schools
- Up-to-date job board
- Continued email support for three months after course
While we try our best to assist trainees in their job search, it is our policy to never "guarantee" jobs to trainees. While many of our competitors advertise guaranteed job placement, we feel this is the wrong approach. Offering guaranteed job placement tends to attract less committed students, and it is in the best interests of the school and our students that each trainee is serious about the course. In addition, if someone does not complete the course requirements, we would not feel comfortable placing them in a position.
Based on previous experience, the vast majority of those who successfully complete the CELTA course have very little difficulty finding a job--and we are committed to preparing each student to find and land the job that is best for them.
