Being trained under International House quality standards is a synonym of excellence and professionalism

IH Mexico runs a wide range of teacher training courses for those who want to get started in the profession, and those with years of experience who equally want to develop their practice further. We offer course at all different levels, from the early stages of development up to first degree and master’s degree level: TKT, CELTA, ICELT, IH CAM, and Delta.

We run around 20 CELTAs, 16 ICELTs and 2 Delta every year. We are the largest training centre in Mexico and the third largest IHWO centre in the world. We have part-time, full-time and on-line options, including Blended Delta and Online CELTA.

Help with Employment

If you're looking for a job as an English teacher either in the Mexico or abroad, you're on the right track taking the course with IH Mexico. We have seen our staff and trainees use their Cambridge CELTA qualification to go in many different directions with their careers, part-time jobs and hobbies, as well as travels.

First-time teachers have gotten jobs teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) to adults in language schools and international companies in Mexico and other locations in different countries overseas.
Experienced teachers have also taken the course and used their CELTA qualification for professional development and to expand their repertoire to teaching ESL students within their schools as well as to travel and work abroad.
Some teachers have also used the CELTA certificate to get volunteer and paid work teaching immigrant students in the the UK and the US and some have taught ESL in refugee camps overseas.

The possibilities for types of employment, types of students and job locations are endless.

Whatever it is you choose to do, taking CELTA at Ih Mexico prepares you for all of the above possibilities and more. Not only does the CELTA give you the practical, hands-on training that you need to be completely prepared and confident to walk into an EFL/ESL classroom anywhere in the world and teach English, but being affiliated with International House World Organisation offers world-wide recognition with language school employers who give strong preference to teachers who have successfully completed a CELTA training course.

There are several more ways Ih Mexico helps our teachers find work. It is our aim to make sure that each of our teachers has the ability to find teaching positions where they want and we are very proud of the places where our teachers go on to work.

With Ih Mexico the process of getting our teachers the right job starts before the course has even begun. Our trainees write out their resumé and bring it with them to the start of the course. Over the last week week of the course, our tutors give support to help trainees write their CV to send out to schools. One of the most powerful tools for finding work is the Ih Mexico School Database. This is a purpose-built database of information on schools in Mexico and around the world. So whether our trainees wish to teach English in Mexico or X’ian, Barcelona or Isreal, we have listings of all the major (and quite a few minor) schools in the district with contact details including email and postal addresses as well as phone numbers.

With the Ih Mexico School Database, our teachers are able to contact schools directly, bypassing the crowd who can only apply for teaching positions once they have been advertised. The best jobs rarely get advertised on the Internet and are taken by teachers who can apply directly to the principal of a school who does the hiring. Our teachers have access to the right people through the School Database. And access does not stop once a teacher has got their first job; our teachers have access to the Ih Mexico House School Database as well as job assistance and advice from our tutors for life. Remember, in the ELT profession, which is a versatile international field, you want to make sure your teaching qualification is just as versatile and international! We ensure quality training, experienced staff and long-standing internationally-recognized certification with CELTA. Combined with access to the Ih Mexico School Database and our expert assistance in job hunting, you will be well on the way to getting the job you want!

Please note: We do not charge our teachers extra for access to the Ih Mexico School Database or to give references. Furthermore, we do not accept payment from schools who wish to employ our graduates. As such, we never accept payment from either our graduates looking for work or the school hiring, and we would be very wary of any teacher training centre which did.


As part of the application process we will ask you if you need help with accommodation. If you do, we will send a list of housing options to all candidates coming from outside Mexico. The school's accommodation runs from 30 to 40USD per night, or around 400USD per month.

Refund Policy

Candidates need to make a deposit of 500USD within the first week of being accepted. Tuition fees are not refundable but can be transferred to a subsequent course.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre

I was a very beneficial course with the great help of my tutors.

, DELTA Modules 1 & 2 student,

It has been a life changing event in My life. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be a better TEACHER

, CELTA Online student,

Excellent tutors!

, CELTA Online student,

Before taking CELTA, I was worried since CELTA is a challenging course. However, the main course tutor and my tutors were always ready to help.

, CELTA Online student,

I have had a great experience to join this course. It was a useful course I have learned some effective ways and advanced techniques of teaching approaches. In addion,I could deal with learners ,teachers and tutors from different parts of the world having different nationalities ,customs and languages.

, TEFL - ITI Tefl student,

I have had successful training thanks to the support of the tutors.

, CELTA Online student,

Though I had a marginal time difference (+8hrs), I had a great experience interacting with learners and tutors from the other side of the globe. It would have been better should I not had caught the corona virus which put more pressure on me to complete my assessments with the surrounding circumstances.

, CELTA Online student,

The tutors I had were very knowledgeable and supportive for the most part. The course met my needs and was flexible enough to meet my schedule.

, CELTA Online student,

I have studied under three teachers who were quite supportive, and their comments were accurate and rewarding from learner's point of view. The procedures were smooth and efficient as far as I could know. I slightly expected a more relaxed atmosphere, but I had to work so hard to work on course units, assignments and teaching plans simultaneously, which gave me no repose. I comment on the facility though I did not use any rooms in Mexico, Zoom and Moodle applications functioned well except two brief occasions. I thank IH Mexico because I could meet all Mexican and Spanish speaking students with whom I could use some Spanish in a case. I express my gratitude toward all the people who contribute to the online course.

, CELTA Online student,

I had a great experience and am so grateful for the opportunity to work with such great tutors! Eliberto, Miguel, and Orlando were all very attentive and available. I feel that they were always professional and encouraging while giving constructive feedback. I would have liked updated materials for this online course, however, I am aware of how new this is. Thank you for making this an option.

, CELTA Online student,

great course, extraordinarily intense, but worth it!

, CELTA student,

Had a great time, although exhausting, the place needs more routers, the internet is terrible in some places

, CELTA student,

It was really a wonderful experience. Great tutors and amazing facilities.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience, with lots of things to do and learn. Tutors were great and willing to help.

, CELTA student,

It was an amazing course and the tutors were great! The quality of the house is really good. The only thing I would improve is the amount of computers used to print materials for classes, since it can get very crowded when several courses are running at the same time.

, CELTA student,

The best growing experience.

, CELTA student,

Everything was fine. Thank you

, CELTA student,

The tutors are amazing and experienced people who are always there to help the trainees in everything they need. The content of the course is awesome as well; however I would've liked to learn how to teach English to a person who has never, ever studied it before.

, CELTA student,

The course was challenging and interesting. It more than met my expectations for the Delta and I would highly recommend the course at IH Mexico City.

, DELTA student,

It was a great experience. I learned how to teach English in a very nice and friendly way.

, CELTA student,

One of the most memorable experiences of my life. Thank you Liz, Richard and Miranda.

, CELTA student,

I enjoyed taking the course quite much. My tutors were honest and professional at all times. The only inconvenience was not having Wi-Fi as we had most sessions in the building around the corner.

, CELTA student,

It was an amazing experience.

, CELTA student,

More or less satisfactory with regard to the instructors, however there were several issues regarding infrastructure. The internet service was terribly inadequate. The wifi did not work properly and there were not enough printers to satisfy the needs of the class. the printing queues were quite long at times.

, CELTA student,

It was great and intense, I would recommend it any time.

, CELTA student,

Fantastic course and great tutors. It really helps develop you as a teacher in a short time!

, CELTA student,

It was a worthwhile experience. I had the opportunity to improve a lot as a professional. My course tutors were much more than great. Really good professionals and human beings. They were always there to support us in different ways!!

, DELTA student,

The course tutors were amazing and very knowledgeable. The course fully lived up to my expectations.
