"It prepared me for what to expect during the CELTA course, and taught me basic (yet essential) terminology, methodology. The prep course also showed me by examples how it works in practice..."

CELTA and Delta Tutor and Assessor

"I’ve been training teachers for the Cambridge CELTA and Delta for many years and in many different countries. Over time I recognised that some trainees who were unfamiliar with certain teaching approaches would benefit from a short introduction to teaching ideas and concepts before they started a rigorous and intensive teacher training course like the Cambridge CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL."

Emma Louise Pratt / Course Tutor

"Through our contact in the English teacher training sector, we also saw this need for a course that helped prepare candidates for their training courses. This isn’t a course to train people to teach. It’s an orientation course to better prepare them for their English teacher training, which can be very intensive and stressful when you have no idea at all about teaching or education ideas today. We want to thank everyone who has contributed and especially the teachers of and Giralda Centre, Seville, Spain for letting me into their classrooms."


"The ELT Campus TEFL Preparation Course is definitely worth its modest price and the time one needs to invest in completing the course. Anyone planning to do a CELTA will greatly benefit from the basic orientation and understanding that the TEFL Prep Course provides. The videos offer a glimpse into what a 'real' ELT classroom is like, invaluable for those with no experience in particular."
