The four weeks of your CELTA course starts you off down the road to being a teacher. Workshops are like wayside inns where you pop in for refreshment and to meet and talk to fellow travellers...

Infographic | Who takes CELTA courses?


Image | Pre-course employment and previous experience of a sample group of trainees on a CELTA course at IH Barcelona in August 2014

What sort of people take CELTA courses at IH Barcelona -- who will be your classmates, in other words, if you take your course with us?

In the image, above, you have a sample class which is fairly representative: they are by no means all people straight out of college, people from around the world and from all walks of life, with and without teaching experience.

Our data from 2013 shows that 66% of our CELTA course trainees were women, 35% were non-native speakers of English and 39% had no previous teaching experience at all.

On ihes.com, our main site, you have the full infographic, and more details.
