“I am interested in teacher training in terms of leading teachers through CELTA. I have also had the opportunity to train CELTA trainers which is very rewarding. I enjoy getting feedback from trainees and hearing from successful CELTA graduates about how their EFL careers have developed after CELTA. It is great to hear about what they are doing now and the range of opportunities CELTA has given them.”

“CELTA is such a short and intensive course and it can feel a bit of a whirlwind experience, so I am always finding innovative and creative ways to communicate the key ideas, ensuring they are easily retained. Lately I have been studying Experience Design, looking at how to make teaching training a truly positive, memorable and beautiful experience”
