Help with Employment
Many of our CELTA graduates find work at ILSC-Montreal or at other ILSC schools in Canada, Australia and India. We are also contacted by other language schools both locally and abroad who are looking for qualified teachers and pass that information onto our graduates. We provide references when requested by prospective employers.
We have many CELTA students who come from outside Montreal to take the program with us. Most find their own short-term accommodation through services such as Airbnb. Montreal's accommodation is a lot cheaper than other North American cities, particularly if you're coming from the US - the exchange rate is very favorable!
These are short term rentals that CELTA students have used as well:
We can also assist with homestay, though this is more suitable for language students than for CELTA students who will need a bit more quiet due to the intensity of the course.
