Impress employers

The Cambridge CELTA is a highly sought-after qualification by employers. Once you have completed your training with us, you are in the best possible position to find a great job in TEFL anywhere in the world. 

Employers worldwide know that you have received rigorous training from professionals and you are ready to start teaching their students. Our graduates regularly receive a higher hourly rate than those who have taken courses which are not accredited by Trinity or Cambridge. Combine this with our comprehensive and lifelong Careers Service and you are good to go! We have been providing training and job assistance since 1998, so you can be assured that we can help you too. 

Here is how we can help you find a great job in TEFL

Provide you with the most-recognised TEFL qualification worldwide

A Cambridge or Trinity-accredited certificate from Oxford TEFL will ensure that you generate the maximum interest and respect from employers around the world and find a great job in TEFL.

Reputation Worldwide

Oxford TEFL is recognised worldwide as one of the top TEFL training centres. We train more teachers each month than many of our competitors, and employers know and trust our solid reputation. This means our graduates often get preference over graduates from some other TEFL training centres.

Prepare your TEFL CV/Resume

We will help you write an eye-catching CV to impress employers and convince them you are a great candidate for the job. You can even send it to us before you start your course to get a head start. Don’t worry if you’ve never taught before – we’ll show you how to make your past experience relevant to your job search.

Keep you informed about TEFL vacancies

New job offers from around the world are frequently posted on our Oxford TEFL Jobs facebook page. During the course we’ll also let you know whenever there are job openings locally.

Send out your CV to our partners around the world

We have direct contact with select schools and recruiters in Barcelona and around the world. These organisations prefer our graduates over many other teachers as they know you are well prepared for teaching English.

Provide you with a list of employers worldwide (300+)

Our carefully curated database of TEFL employers worldwide makes it easy for you to get in touch with multiple employers in multiple countries.

Prepare you for job interviews

During the course, you will have a dedicated session to prepare you for interviews. You can discuss various questions you will likely be asked with your peers and our Careers Advisor. We’ll also go over the interview “dos and don’ts”, what to take with you and what to ask potential employers so you make a good impression on the day.

Recommend teaching online companies

We have first-hand experience teaching English online and we are also able to recommend some of the best companies and agents to work for. Whether you plan to teach English online as your main job, or simply to supplement your existing income, we will help you find a great job in TEFL teaching online.

Help you find private students

We can help you find private students by providing you with great resources, such as useful websites, and other ideas for attracting potential students. Additionally, we will help you market yourself to private students by using a variety of different methods like writing ads for online job boards and recommending different platforms, while providing you with a bank of useful teaching resources for free.

Help you prepare for demo lessons

Many employers ask you to prepare a demo lesson as part of the application process. We are there to support you by helping you plan your lesson and materials. You can use our library and facilities too!

Connect you with our graduates

We will put you in touch with our graduates working worldwide for advice and support on job markets. With over five thousand graduates (and counting), that’s quite a lot of jobs, experiences, classrooms, visa applications, culture shock and weird food!

Write a course report for you

Once you have successfully completed the CELTA, your Main Course Tutor will prepare a final report which summarises your development on the course. You can use this report as a reference and start applying for jobs while you are waiting for your official CELTA certificate to arrive from Cambridge.
