Did you find out in the end in there are any courses near Waterford? Last time I checked it was mainly Dublin also

The Waterford schools mentioned offer ACELS approved English course but I don't think they offer teacher training which I presume is what people mean when they equire about CELT.

Hi there, I am looking to do a part time CELT course as i have a full time job, the only part time courses seem to be in Dublin School of English and also Dorset College. Has anyone been on either of these courses, I would appreciate some feedback ? I am ideally looking for the cheapest option but I also take the quality of the course into consideration. Also if anyone knows of any other part time options in Dublin region please advise?Thanks!

Celta

Hi there
I completed a CELTA course in IH Dublin in November..Brilliant course was 1 month and super intensive...v pressurised but well worth it!!
I know that IH Dublin do part time courses too..so check them out. I hear that it is very difficult doing the course part time...better to get it over and done in 1 month if you're able too. I was lucky I got funding from Fás that paid for most of the course as I was made redundant in May..Hope this helps

I received notification about the following event from an English language school that I worked with last year. It is from ACELS, which is the governing body of English language schools in Ireland and which awards the CELT tefl qualification. If anybody is interested in becoming a teacher of English as a foreign language, it would probably be worth your while going to it in the Teachers' Club (Parnell Square, Dublin) on Saturday 6 February 2010:


PS: As somebody who did the CELT, I regularly receive such emails from both the language school I did it in and the school I worked in last year. Most of these emails are notifications of jobs for teachers of English across the world. They were looking for teachers in Santander in Spain two days ago.

I posted a query about the part-time versus full-time options at IH in the other recent CELTA thread, no feedback yet.

Do you have anymore info on this, snowleapord? I can do either option.

Hi everyone, just finished reading the 9 pages of this thread (very informative, thanks to everyone!).

I'm hoping to do the 4 week CELT course but it costs the best part of a thousand euros so it will be some time before I can get the money together. I was wondering if there was any funding I could get? I went to my local employment services office today but they told me FAS will not fund anything to do with TEFL or the likes. I saw that Goiter posted that he/she got partial funding from FAS. Does anyone have any more info about this or about anywhere else I can try? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Don't know myself. I had a few things I wanted clarified when applying for me, phoned and found them to be very helpful. Maybe you could give them a ring.
