Job offer at the centers

Although we do not guarantee job placement for all candidates at our centre, we often offer a job placement subject to performance for at least one best graduating student. Usually, the offer is subject to availability of a position. Also, sometimes, this offer may be part-time or hourly jobs options.

Career guidance and counselling

While taking your CELTA, you will be free to approach our experienced trainers for issues relating to the teaching career and professional development. You may also consult any of our trained staff on further educational advancement or what courses you may want to pursue after your course.


We are always willing and ready to stand as referees or provide references for candidates to aid their job search. Through referencing, we can help push forward your skills and abilities to prospective employers.

Job-related training sessions

During the TESOL course, you will also enjoy a few sessions where you can discuss job-related matters and learn specific skills from experienced tutors who have also been on the journey you are about to start. You will learn how to create a great CV that lets you stand out among other applicants, tips on how to pass interviews, and how to relate with prospective employers.

Networks and connection

We utilise our local and international connections to ensure our TEFL trainees stay connected to opportunities and get suitable offers within a short period after completing the course. Additionally, we connect you to employees through several platforms on the internet.

The CELTA certificate is well recognised and approved in the United Arab Emirates, and is popular among ESL employers.
