The facilities in the centre are great. The fact that there are projectors in the classrooms meant I was able to use technology to really enhance each of my lessons. When there were minor technological issues with computers, this was dealt with quickly and efficiently, which was very pleasing. Moodle is also used during the course, and after each input session, tutors uploaded information and powerpoints almost immediately, which was very useful for writing essays. I was able to check authors and ideas very quickly, to include in my assignments. I also loved using Office 365 on the course, it meant that saving work and working remotely was never a problem, as it’s all saved on the cloud!
I recommend this DELTA course to anyone: it’s very intensive and it means very hard work but with a good timetable and the support of the tutors you can complete it with a sense of achievement. Thank you guys! I appreciate all your hard work and your help and the good atmosphere on the course.
After researching on Internet, I knew CELTA is one of the most widely recognised certificates for teaching English. I didn’t have any teaching experience before, so I started from scratch. It’s been a lot of hard work, and haven’t had any free time. It was a good job it was a 5 week course. If it had been 4 weeks, I’d have gone mental. Now I’ve done the course, I know I want to carry on and find a teaching job.
Having a full teaching timetable while I was doing the DELTA I knew it was going to be hard work. However, thanks to the support of the tutors (not to mention my fellow teachers) I was able to complete and pass the course. Steve and the team are very professional and tremendously helpful, providing lots of guidance and a few laughs along the way.
