Teaching House

Teaching House

Cambridge University approved the opening of Teaching House in 2007. With the aim to expand quality English-language teacher training in the United States, Teaching House has opened over 15 center locations and trained over 3,000 new teachers. Teaching House is now the largest provider of Cambridge CELTA courses in the world.

Ensuring the high standards of education that are set by Cambridge University, all Teaching House CELTA courses have a maximum of only 6 trainees working with each trainer. To fulfill this trainer/trainee ratio, the Teaching House staff include over 20 Cambridge University-approved teacher trainers as well as a strong support team based at our headquarters in New York.

In addition to the standard four-week CELTA course format, Teaching House has developed two new formats: the 10-week part-time course which is designed for people who work full-time during the day (the course is run on two evenings a week and on Saturdays); and, the 7-week semi-intensive course (the course is run three days a week), which is run in November and December of each year and designed for people who would prefer to take the course at a slower pace.

To assist graduates to find the best available jobs both in the USA and abroad, Teaching House maintains a host of platforms to help TH graduates throughout their teaching career. In 2009, Teaching House pioneered job assistance for graduates. TH Nomads (as graduates are called) are provided with assistance from TESOL Job Advisors through the Job Assistance Scheme upon graduation. Teaching House also maintains a well-regarded TESOL Job Listing where English-language schools around the world place adverts looking to fill teacher positions. TH also produces a suit of newsletters to keep graduates informed about ESOL News as well as keep graduates informed of the best teaching jobs available. In 2013 Teaching House created the TH Nomads Blog and greatly improved social media, so that TH Nomads are able to keep in contact, share tips about teaching in different countries and as a means to network.

In addition to providing English-language teacher training, Teaching House provides three services to the community: free English-language classes at all of our centers; free TESOL consultancy for other providers of free English-language classes to improve the quality of their instruction; educational grants to ESOL-based programs. For more information on these services, see our page on Charity Work. 

Teaching House’s graduates are found in language schools throughout the United States and across the globe, and whether you are interested in joining our group of graduates, looking to recruit a Cambridge University certified teacher, interested in free language classes or our other charity work, Teaching House is happy to hear from you.
