Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre

It has been a great experience! Although rather intense, the tutors, Mike Cattlin and Stephanie Wilbur, were very understanding of this heavy workload and were always at hand with any difficulties or questions I had. I consider myself lucky to have participated in this course, and I highly recommend it to every teacher out there who is willing to improve their way of teaching.

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed taking the CELTA course, the tutors were professional, great and helpful, and overall it was a great experience!

, CELTA student,

I was part of the first cohort of CELTA trainees at the IBU CELTA CENTRE as a trainer-in-training. It was a fabulous experience. CELTA is a very intensive course, but having supportive and competent trainers makes all the difference. I had tremendously patient mentors in the process of becoming a CELTA tutor.

, CELTA student,

This was a grueling, but yet very rewarding experience. Five weeks of intensive training, but lots of support by our in-house tutors, Ani and Iskra, who were with us every step of the way, encouraging us and telling us that things will get easier once we delved deeper into the course, and they truly did. The tutors were professional and available for every question we had, so the initial trepidation we had at the beginning of the course gradually disappeared by TP8 since we were already more confident in our knowledge and skills. This CELTA course was truly a memorable experience and I encourage anyone to not feel hesitant when embarking on this new adventure - it really makes you grow both as a person and a teacher. It was truly worth it!
