Difference among courses?

Unread post by CELTASkelta » 13 May 2012, 20:37

How important is the particular organization with whom one takes the course?

Is it more important to take a course where you would like to teach, or in a "good" organization. And which, please are the good ones.



British Council?

Is Southern Cross any good?

Many thanks,

The organisation whose name is on the cert is much more important than the organisation that does the actual training, e.g. a CELTA in an unknown school is much better than an IH Cert (which most of their centres don't offer anyway) at IH. This is also much more important than doing your training in the country you want to work in.
