We have a strong network of partners across Europe and the world who offer job interviews to successful CELTA graduates. Our recruitment team can assist newly qualified teachers in finding that first EFL job.

We can offer candidates a range of accommodation options including self-catering student houses, hostel, B & B or staying with a local host family. Accommodation in Derry is among the cheapest in the UK, offering candidates a great value package.

In the case of cancellation three weeks or more before the course start date, the deposit of £250 will be retained. With less than three weeks' notice, 50% of the course fee will be retained. If cancellation occurs in the final ten days before the starting date the total course fee will be retained. There are no refunds if you leave the course once it has started. However, in the case of extreme or unavoidable circumstances such as serious illness, we may allow you to join a later course upon payment of a second course deposit (£250).

Course Feedback

"I cannot recommend more highly the CELTA course at Foyle International. The professionalism, dedication and teaching from Kelly and Chris was absolutely first-rate. Whilst the course was very demanding, it was also greatly rewarding and proved to be excellent preparation for real teaching. After completing the course I was selected for the Irish JET programme to teach English in Japan, and have since ended up in International school teaching in Sweden. Brilliant course!"
