CELTA Summer Special Package:
This summertime special has been designed for candidates looking to prepare themselves for the job market, particularly for those who wish to teach in a Spanish speaking country.
The Cambridge CELTA course is a highly regarded as an initial certificate in teaching English to adults, but the International House Young Learners Course then provides a very practical introduction of how to adapt your skills to children and teenage classes. Many teaching jobs require you to give classes to younger learners, with up to 50% of a teaching timetable often consisting of classes to the under 16s.
The added Spanish component will be extremely useful as you begin your life in Spain or Central or South America. Two options allow you either to complete a two week Spanish course before the English teacher training courses begin, or a four week Spanish course between the CELTA and Younger Learners course. In our experience, those trainees who have qualified as both adult and young learner teachers are in great demand, with academies often contacting us to see if any of our Special Package trainees are looking for work locally. What is more, the experience gained on the courses will give you more confidence in facing the challenges of teaching diverse groups. You are welcome to apply for the CELTA + IHCYL only, should the Spanish language component not be of interest to you.
