CELTA/TEFL courses

Hello,

My name is David and I am about to start the CELTA course in Baden. I would like to know if any of you have taken this course or any other TEFL/TESOL courses. I would be interested to know how you found it and to know what job prospects it gave you in Switzerland.

Regards,

David Leiser

Hi David. Welcome to the forum. Check out the language section using the search feature, and I think you will find a closely related threat. Good luck! (I'm taking an online TEFOL, and it's not adequate...CELTA will open more doors.)

Re: CELTA/TEFL courses

Hi David,

The CELTA is a great qualification to have. Hopefully you will have great course tutors which will set such a high standard for teaching, that you'll find yourself thinking back to how they did things, as you start your teaching career.

I found it challenging in the sense that there's a lot to do in not a lot of time (the 4 week course) but this also set me up for life as a teacher.

As for job prospects, the CELTA itself, as said by Kristanez, will open more doors than other TEFL qualifications, and a better salary. Saying that, don't expect full-time hours at the beginning of your career... unless you take up classes with many different schools (but even then, it's unlikely at first).

Enjoy it!
