“Changing career nowadays isn't easy, but the CELTA course at Christ Church gave me just what I needed in terms of knowledge and above all confidence to start teaching. I've just spent twelve months teaching English to wives of Gurkha servicemen and it's been a joy. The CELTA has been invaluable in helping me with lesson planning whilst inspiring imaginative use of teaching materials.” Nigel (part-time course, 2011)
“I found the CELTA part-time course at Christ Church University to be a wonderful experience. I gained invaluable knowledge about teaching English as a foreign language, and was able to put this into practice over several months in the classroom, under the supervision of friendly and professional lecturers. The lessons are extremely useful as an insight to a wide variety of rules that we apply unknowingly in our native language. The assignments make us realise how much we take for granted and how it can be difficult for the English student to master. This course also gave me the opportunity to meet up with amazing people from different backgrounds, not only with fellow students but also the English learners. I found employment within a month, and know that I am able to travel anywhere with a world recognised certificate.” Ellen (part-time course, 2012)
“Feedback was essential to my development as a teacher, input from all other students was very good as well, we helped each other’s progress. Teaching practice was terrifying at first but I have learnt to love it! Essential to my learning”. Trainee (Summer 2012)
“I enjoyed Teaching Practice (TP), I found the feedback extremely constructive and helpful in my development as a teacher.”   Trainee (Summer 2013)
