Teaching and Training

Learn how to become a teacher on part-time and full-time teaching qualifications. Your teaching career is in safe hands when you study with us.

Our results speak for themselves. The success rates for most of our teaching and CELTA courses are higher than the national benchmark. In fact, on many courses over 90% of students achieve the qualification. Study CELTA, TEFL or develop your teaching career with post-graduate courses for the lifelong learning sector.

You'll find studying with us a rewarding experience too. And you don't have to take our word for it. Our student evaluations show high levels of satisfaction, with comments describing tutors as 'excellent', 'very supportive' and 'having great skills'.

If you want teacher training courses that support your progression, our courses and training lead towards qualified teacher status – QTLS. And they meet all Government and Standards Verification UK (SVUK) specifications and requirements for teacher training.

“The DTLLS has given me concrete foundations in teaching and helped me develop aims and objectives when teaching, as well as making me much more organised. My classroom management has improved dramatically. I would definitely recommend the course to prospective students. It has taken my career to another level and has led me to become a qualified assessor. I now plan to do my Internal Verifier qualification which will allow me to assess colleagues and ensure the teaching staff are delivering our courses to the correct standards.”
