Talk English

Also within the CELTA team we are running the Talk English programme and are looking for volunteer ESOL teachers.

This programme is for anyone who is considering a career in teaching and needs to gain some experience, or would like to give back to their community.

Volunteer teachers will receive 15 hours free training and teach a class (with another volunteer) in a local school or community centre. Your students will be beginner level and you will have both materials and ongoing support from teacher trainers. Training courses will take place in May/June and September 2018.
