If you already live in Africa the reasons for doing your CELTA in Rwanda are abundant. The country provides a central, peaceful location in which you can obtion the 'gold standard' in English language teaching qualifications, the Cambridge University 'CELTA' (Certificate in English Language Teaching) without having to go to the trouble and the expense of leaving the continent just to do a four week course.
Not only is the Rwanda University campus at Remera an ideal location for CELTA, but you will also find that the students you teach during your observed teaching practice will have a very familiar profile. They are exactly the kind of students you will most likely be teaching in your professional practice, if you are, in fact, not already doing so.
If you don't live in Africa at the moment you might like to consider Rwanda for your CELTA because, not only do you have the same rigour and training from your tutors as on any of our CELTA courses, but you will also be plunged into the fascinating context of East Africa. Education matters desperately in Africa and everyone you come into contact with will reinforce this message. What teachers manage to do in Africa with very few resources is truly inspiring and, as CELTA is all about how to use the resources you have available to you in as imaginative a way as possible, there is no better place to put this into practice than Africa.
Rwanda is a particularly suitable country to base yourself as it's now one of the most peaceful countries in Africa, it has a tragic and fascinating history, a stunningly beautiful landscape to explore and it has taken the most unusual decision to change it's official language from French to English. What better place to launch your career in English Language Teaching !
