    Hi all,

    I am currently having a little bit of a nightmare trying to figure out the best option.

    I have a degree and teaching experience in england (BA History Degree and 1 years experience as a secondary school TA) I have recently been awarded a place on the CELTA course to start September this year, full time. I would need to quit my job and save up the £1300 to take this course and am having some doubts.

    I would like to take a course such as a good TEFL course really, as opposed to jumping right in there at the CELTA deep end!?……can anyone offer advise?

    Regarding Tunisia, there are a number of language schools, however not a lot of them are good at getting back to me and only one organisation so far, has replied ‘Amideast’ who require a CELTA/TESOL minimum.

    I dont know what to do really? Anyone got any pearls of wisdom?

    Thanks x

    CELTA is undoubtedly a popular qualification especially in Europe but it is also a fairly intensive certificate program in terms of finance, workload and commitment.

    Bear in mind that in most places around the world the basic requirements for entry level teaching positions are a degree plus a TESL/TEFL certificate – not necessarily a CELTA.

    If money is an issue then you may want to consider training online. Quality online courses can provide a thorough grounding in a new career and the right tools to approach a new profession within a manageable amount of time and finances. They are a good option particularly if you have a limited budget to further your studies or if you have other work and/or family commitments that restrict the amount of time you have available to study.
