School Details - Auckland

Our school in Auckland has recently moved to a new location with new facilities. It is a few steps away from one of the most vibrant waterfront areas in Auckland -The Viaduct- with stunning views of Waitemata Harbour, lots of world class restaurants, cafes and bars. The central Britomart transport station, ferry terminal, shopping centre and Queen Street are all within walking distance.

The school is very well-resourced and has a dedicated Teacher Training area including a study area and well-stocked and up-to-date resource room. Trainees have access to computers and free Wi-Fi internet access.

Course Description

The CELTA (Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is one of the most widely-recognised and highly regarded initial training courses in teaching English as a foreign language. It is designed for those with little or no previous teaching experience and is also suitable for people who have already taught English but have no formal teaching qualifications.
Course assessment

The course assessment is both continuous and integrated. There is no final exam. The training centre works hard to make the assessment procedure as transparent as possible. Candidates are able to ask their trainer at any point in the course how they are progressing and what they can do to improve. Candidates are made fully aware of the criteria for assessment throughout the course and are given regular tutorial sessions to focus on strengths and to identify areas in need of development.

Help for Jobs

During the CELTA course, trainees will attend workshops dedicated to finding work beyond the course and professional development in TEFL. Assistance will be given in finding job placements and trainees will receive guidance in preparing job applications and writing a CV.

During the course, the school's Director of Studies will deliver a Q&A session on how to get your first teaching job. Guest speakers from recruitment companies also give presentations and webinars on job placement advice. There is also useful information in the Teachers' Survival Kit booklet provided at the end of the course for post-course support and trainees are invited to join the centre's Facebook page and stay abreast of job opportunities long after they have left the centre.
