BSC Edinburgh is Scotland’s leading EFL/ESOL teacher training centre, and the only school in Scotland offering the advanced DELTA (Diploma) as well as our regular CELTA courses. As well as the usual group classes, our CELTA includes a unique one-to-one teaching module, with opportunities for assessed and unassessed one-to-one teaching. Trainees learn to make effective use of the latest teaching technology, and we provide careers guidance and support for job applications, during and after the course. Most of all, we take pride in designing our courses to foster a friendly, supportive and creative atmosphere, and to challenge and inspire you to become the best teacher you can be.

BSC Edinburgh boasts one of the best-equipped and most beautiful teacher training suites in the UK, with spectacular views of Edinburgh castle, a flourishing indoor garden, a lounge and kitchen area, a specialist library with dedicated printing and copying facilities, a study area with computers, and separate classrooms for teaching practice. Trainers are always on hand in the training suite, ably assisted by our mascot, Theodore the pig.
