The course is designed for individuals who are motivated and ready to learn from a variety of backgrounds. Teaching experience is not necessary, but a good command of both spoken and written English is essential to cope with the demands of the course. Participants must be open to new ideas and techniques while also being reflective and supportive. It is crucial that trainees are committed to functioning as a team.

As an academic manager that regularly interviews and employs teachers, qualifications like the CELTA are the bare minimum in terms of what we look for. Having done a course with Lexis before, I can vouch for their quality as well as the fact that they look beyond just an individual course, but look at teacher professional development over a teacher’s career.
