School Overview

School Description

Ever since its foundation, Cambridge School has believed that the key to success in the world of language teaching is providing students with high-quality lessons. For this reason, we have always placed great importance on training and development. Our own teachers attend weekly seminars given by members of our highly experienced and innovative Teacher Training Team. They are also regularly observed by senior teachers and get the chance to learn from each other through our peer observation programme.
Many of our teacher trainers have given seminars in other schools in the area and also in conferences in other parts of Spain and abroad. We have also had many articles published in teaching journals and magazines.
As well as offering classes in our centres to children, teenagers and adults, Cambridge School also provides language training to many leading companies (including household names such as Kraft, Henkel, Merck, Monsanto and Mango) and to local private and state schools. We teach Spanish, Catalan, German, French, Italian and Mandarin Chinese as well as English and also provide other language-related services such as translation and interpreting and language study trips to countries where the language in question is spoken.

Help with Employment

The Cambridge School Teacher Training Department has long experience in helping teachers find work in good schools in Spain and around the world. Both our CELTA and DELTA courses include indispensable careers advice sessions full of practical advice on how to get the right job. In addition, all teachers enrolled on training courses with us get exclusive access to our Facebook Job Market where teaching positions are regularly posted. What’s more, we give priority to teachers who have trained at Cambridge School when we have vacancies in our eight centres.

Accommodation

We offer a homestay accommodation service to our candidates. Many of our homestay hosts are young, single professional people who have a spare room in their house or flat. Sometimes, but less often, they are families with children. In your room, you will have a bed, a wardrobe and a workspace (occasionally, the workspace is in another part of the home). You will have shared use of the bathroom and the kitchen.
We are proud to say that our trainees are nearly always very happy with their accommodation despite the fact that it is very cheap. The price is 395€ for the whole 5-week period (from the Friday night before the course begins until the Friday night that the course ends inclusive) plus a deposit of 100€. The deposit is returned at the end of the course providing there have been no breakages or damage in the accommodation. If you wish to stay extra days before or after the course, this is usually possible, as long as you arrange it beforehand and pay proportionally for the extra days.

Location Overview

Granollers is a safe, friendly, affluent city of 60,000 people located about 25 kilometers inland from Barcelona. It has an attractive historical centre focused around the 'Porxada', an unusual Renaissance building which looks something like a Roman temple. In fact, it was built as a grain store - hence the name of the town, Granollers. The 'Porxada' is set in a large square flanked by shops bars and restaurants. It is an ideal place if you like sitting at pavement cafés watching the world go by. Nearby is the extensive, modern pedestrianised shopping area. On Thursday mornings, the whole town centre is transformed into a huge market in which you can find a bewildering array of local products.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


I thoroughly enjoyed studying the CELTA course at Cambridge school Granollers. The tutors were encouraging and helpful throughout. The course covered so much but did so in a way that was manageable to digest. It gave me the confidence boost I needed to go out there and teach abroad. I now have a fantastic teaching job in Japan, somewhere I had never expected to teach. I would recommend the course to anyone who thinks a TEFL career would suit their lifestyle.

, CELTA student,

Fantastic!

, CELTA student,

very good teachers. location perfect too. my only minus point is too little computers and space available for after school time homework, needing to search for space etc. but otherwise a great experience.

, CELTA student,

I had a fantastic learning experience at Granollers! I learnt so much, met wonderful people and was pushed out of my comfort zone (fully supported!); ready to find my first teaching job.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience, learnt so much with the very helpful tutors and actual teachers that were working there. Very efficient in informing us of any noticies and very easy to get help if needed. Would recommend doing the CELTA here.

, CELTA student,

Thoroughly enjoyable. Great to work with such a great team of tutors and student population. Everyone wants you to pass, helps you and is willing to go that extra mile if you are struggling. Don't underestimate the workload, but do keep a balance. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

, CELTA student,

The course was definitely intensive and at times quite stressful but because my tutor Maria had already informed me of the intensity of the course and what I would be expecting I was already mentally prepared and therefore was able to handle the 5 weeks successfully. The trainees were all very professional and supportive, which made the learning environment fun and less stressful than it could be. But yes the course is quite demanding and requires a lot of hard work and commitment. But if you do your task well you will for sure get the result you deserve. I got to learn many things regardless of where or whom I teach. I can use this knowledge anywhere such as class setting, variety of activities and most importantly working in a stressful environment especially with a deadline and I think this is the best quality any teacher could have.

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed doing the CELTA course, I learned so much from observing veteran teachers and the tutors we're always there if you needed them. I would 100% recommend doing the CELTA at Cambridge school Granollers, especially as they offer a 5 week course, which takes pressure off the workload.

, CELTA student,

As I did rate the previous questions, the CELTA course was an amazing experience with such good tutors and trainers. Apart from the fact the course was extremely intensive, even with an extra week, the little town was very pleasant and managable, everybody was so professional and helpful. I recommend this course in Granollers to anybody.

, CELTA student,

It was brilliant!

, DELTA Module 2 student,

I really enjoyed the dynmaic teaching input sessions we had each morning and practice teaching in the afternoons with both peer feedback and that of a trained celta leader. I was so nervous the first time I got up in front of a group of students but by the end of the 5 week course I was confident and felt ready to go into my first job as an English teacher. I have been working ever since I got the celta 5 years ago and it was the best foundation for developing into the more experienced teacher that I am today.

, CELTA student,

Fantastic course and venue. Great facilities and lots of support on the course. Highly recommended.

, CELTA student,

a very informative and thorough course with support from the tutors every step of the way

, CELTA student,

Exellent trainers, great school, lovely practice students.

, CELTA student,
