Please advise! I got CELTA with a Pass :(

Unread postby pheonix » 12 Oct 2012, 01:32

Hi there,
I recently completed a CELTA with a Pass. I have been applying for jobs all around, but no one has come back with an answer, I have had very little experience teaching as a volunteer in New Zealand when i was studying for my bachelor's. However, by obtaining a " pass" will this cost me my career in teaching? Please help! It's very frustrating to be applying for jobs and most people asking for either a "pass b or pass A".. These kind of replies are very demotivating and discouraging personally :( I need some advise. Thank you

I think you can get a job with a pass. it may be because you are looking for a job when the academic year has already started.

I'm surprised most schools are asking for an A or B, in my experience only a tiny percentage of schools ask for that and most will be very happy with a CELTA pass. Which country are you applying in?
