CELTA - Where are they now?

One of the benefits of CELTA at IH London is the advice and support in looking for jobs that we offer in our ‘Jobs Talk’ in the final week of your intensive CELTA course. Just when you start thinking, ‘hmmm… what’s next?’ We are there to help you answer that question.

This session, delivered by an IH Academic Manager, helps with where to look for jobs, what kinds of things to look out for when applying, help with interview questions / answers and what to put on your CV.

We can show you how to highlight all the experience you have gained on the CELTA and give you insight into what employers are looking for in a teacher. There are often guest speakers such as representatives from the British Council promoting their Teacher Development Programme or someone giving top tips on getting into Business English. Schools from all over the world contact us directly looking for our CELTA graduates and we promote a variety of jobs directly to our candidates! Another great reason to choose IH.

We caught up with some of our previous students and here is what they had to say...


IHLondon _Simone Griener _CELTA

"After CELTA, the world is your oyster! I am a German student but during my semester breaks I can work abroad now."

"Doing the CELTA at IH London was an eye-opener for me; I am absolutely sure that being a teacher is my dream job. The course was difficult and stressful but you have to stay focused on your goals and see the immediate outcome."

"I already worked for an international college in England during summer school and term time and will work at the same college this summer again. Many opportunities ahead and definitely plan to do the DELTA as well!"

IHlondon _Alex Page _CELTA

"I frequently tell people that my CELTA  qualification from IH is the most challenging – and most rewarding – achievement on my CV. It has allowed me to follow my dream of moving to Japan, teaching elementary school children and adults, and it continues to open doors for me."

"Day three of training for my current job as an Assistant Language Teacher in one of Japan’s elementary schools. I planned my lesson on one of the empty lesson plans from my CELTA. It had the IH logo in the corner. The head trainer called me to the head of the class while marking them and said, ‘You trained with IH? Wow – everyone who is anyone in this industry has been through their training."

"No matter where my career takes me to next, I know that IH’s extensive training in all areas of ESL teaching will ensure that I am completely prepared, and is recognised as among the finest in the world. Thank you, IH!"
