Becky Mitchell, CELTA graduate
I studied CELTA because I wanted a qualification that gives me the flexibility to work internationally and part-time. I enjoyed it enormously - it was interesting, hard work, stimulating and fun. I now teach English at a local language school but I hope to move to Hong Kong to teach next.
South Thames is such a pleasant working environment – the staff and students make a great team – my tutor made learning fun and gave invaluable positive criticism – a great teacher!
