€10,000 Scholarships Available to Teach, Study, and Travel in Europe in 2017

Participating in a teacher training course at the English Teacher Training College is so much more than earning a TEFL certification. Not only do you have the opportunity to earn an internationally recognized teaching qualification, the Trinity CertTESOL or Cambridge CELT-P, you gain more than 220 hours of practical teaching experience in real Austrian classrooms. While honing your own teaching abilities, you are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of Austrian schoolchildren. In rural areas of Austria, children learn English from a textbook without ever having met a native speaker. You have the possibility to broaden the horizons of your students as you act as a cultural ambassador, sharing about your language and culture while learning about theirs. This rewarding experience doesn’t just benefit you and the children, but the entire Austrian school system. The English Teacher Training College offers training for Austrian school teachers where they can learn our fun, active learning teaching methodologies and how to incorporate more English in their classroom. It’s truly a win-win-win situation!

Only 100 Euros... Too Good to Be True?

What is included in the 100 membership fee? First off... why a membership fee? The way we are structured as a non-profit, every staff, Student Teacher, and Austrian Student become members of our organization. We request that Student Teachers pay this fee as a way of committing to the course. The 100 euros that each Student Teacher pays goes right back into the organization to help pay for teaching materials, accommodation, etc…

The Best Way to Teach English in Europe?

How Much Does It Cost to "Make" a Teacher?

Let's all take a moment to step back and have a look at the bigger picture. How exactly does this place work? Who is paying for everything? How is the course so heavily subsidized? Most of us got into teaching because we enjoyed working with people rather than objects. Many of us feel quite strongly that teaching is a calling, not just a job. But at the end of day, we need to pay the bills and keep the lights on.

What are the differences between TEFL, TESOL, CertTESOL, CELTA, CELT-P & TEFL-YL?

TEFL, TESOL, CertTESOL, CELTA, CELT-P, TEFL-YL - what does it all mean? What's accredited and what's not? Most importantly, what will help me get my dream job and allow me to travel the globe teaching English?
