Why do this certificate course?

The English Language (EL) sector in Ireland is the most successful in the world, per capita, at attracting foreign learners to study English. There are roughly 200 centres in Ireland where EL providers will be looking for suitably qualified teachers this year. This is a unique opportunity for recent college graduates to find interesting and rewarding work. The demand for EL teachers means the English Language centres are willing to pay full scholarships for those willing to work with them for 6 months following the successful completion of the course. That means you can now take this course for little or no cost and have a full-time job lined up afterwards.
