Taking a CELTA course is a great way for graduates to use their language skills and broaden their horizons.
CELTA or the Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults is the first step to becoming a teacher of English as a foreign language in this country or abroad.
It is an internationally recognised English teaching course and allows people to travel the world and use their English language teaching skills.
Plus the great thing is that currently the British Council are offering a scheme where those who have graduated from university in the last three years can apply to have their funding for this course subsidised.
There are 60 CELTA course places available that will be 50% funded by the British Council. The course is one month long and will be taught at training centres across the UK in 2012.
This special English teaching graduate scheme funded by the British Council will be particularly welcome at a time when it is becoming increasingly difficult for graduates to get work and use their skills.
Those who get a place on this CELTA course will be able to broaden their horizons and turn their teaching skills into a worthwhile career.
The deadline for applications is October 1st so there is no time to waste. To apply or find out more visit http://englishagenda.britishcouncil.org/english-teaching-graduate-scheme
If you are not one of the lucky ones who gets a place on this subsidised CELTA course then you could consider funding the course yourself at a quality language school. It really is a worthwhile and essential course if you want to establish a career in teaching English.
