The Irish Academy is the only internationally recognised Cambridge English CELTA Teacher Training Centre throughout the Canary Islands. As a small family-run centre we offer full-time intensive CELTA courses throughout the year. And because we are small, we are able to give your CELTA experience a personal touch.
We know that doing a CELTA is an important step for you whether you are a school or university leaver starting out as a teacher, or an established teacher wishing to refresh your skills and methodology to help you to work in Bilingual or CLIL contexts, or as a professional in another field wishing to change career paths.
It is also important to note that as we collaborate with BEDA, the Catholic School Association, we often hear about available teaching and assistant positions first, and are also asked to place CELTA graduates in primary and secondary schools when they are recruiting.

Help with Employment
Along with a thorough input session on employment after the course, trainers are on-hand following the course to give advice on potential jobs on the island.
Residence Self-contained Apartments: These are located in the new university residence (ULPGC), 5 mins walk form the school.
Other Apartments: The Irish Academy is in contact with various landlords in the neighbourhood near to the school and so other apartments to share or for individual use may be available upon request.
Homestay: If you would like to live with a Spanish family, this is also an option. This type of accommodation is normally a single room with WIFI and half board provided. Prices are around 500 euros per month.
Las Palmas may be one of the largest cities in Spain but it retains a town-like intimacy and friendliness. It has one of the longest coastlines in Europe which provides some fantastic beach spaces to enjoy in the year-long clement weather.
