The range of help that we provide includes:|
School contacts. IML has many contacts in the local community and in Almeria, Malaga and Marbella. We will endeavour to schedule job interviews with schools and academies in these areas and do our utmost to ensure that graduates are aware of any employment possibilities during and after the course.
Observation of experienced teachers at IML. Graduates get the chance to sit in on a range of exam based and general English classes to see how they are taught.
Simulated job interviews. Graduates get the chance to participate in mock interviews in order to prepare for real interviews.
Regular contact. When the course has finished, it is not just ‘goodbye´, we would like are graduates to keep in touch! We are interested in how they are developing as English teachers and on their different experiences in the TEFL world. We also welcome testimonials which are always very helpful to our current trainees.

|Course summary||The Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages is a 4 week intensive course which covers the essential principles of teaching English. It is aimed at candidates with little or no experience in teaching and it introduces ideas and information which are essential in starting to teach. Additionally, CELTA is ideal for teachers with no formal qualifications who wish to gain a recognized professional teaching award. The CELTA is accredited at level 5 of the Qualification and Credit Framework for England, Wales and Northern Ireland and it is also an international qualification, highly valued and well known all over the world.
There is a strong emphasis on putting into practice what is learnt on the course and candidates will have the opportunity to teach part of a class nearly everyday. We have a very ‘hands on’ approach and we really encourage candidates to apply what they have learnt at every stage.
