Job Opportunities

The opportunities to teach English to speakers of other languages around the world are limitless. A teaching qualification like CELTA or Certificate IV in TESOL, gives you the skills to teach this global language in a variety of contexts and countries.

There is great demand for trained and qualified English teachers around the world. Quality language schools, including International House, expect their teachers to have the skills and techniques learned on the CELTA course.

As a result, CELTA is the benchmark of training that perspective employers look for and International House Sydney regularly employs its own CELTA graduates. Many other graduates find work in local schools as a result of connections made through IH Sydney.
