International House CELTA Training Centre in Phuket
Thailand’s most popular TEFL or TESOL course!
Every now and then something special comes along in the world of TEFL CELTA training. We at International House believe our course in Phuket is just that. By the way, every now and then is every July. The best known of the beautiful tropical islands that lie just off the coast of southern Thailand, Phuket is also the biggest; offering the type of attractions that have made it a world famous destination, able to cater to just about anyone – from the travel connoisseur to the backpacker on a budget. Whether it’s golden beaches lined with palm trees bent backwards from the stiff sea breeze, or the rugged terrain of the mountains with ‘jungle’ interior that takes your fancy, we feel sure that Phuket has just what you are looking for. But then we don’t really need to tell you that – it’s Phuket!
All you need to know about the pearl of the south of Thailand can be found in the Phuket Guide.
It’s not only Phuket that’s going to make up your mind for you when deciding where to train – it’s also the training centre. Our host centre for the course, the British International School, is one of the most prestigious International schools in the South East Asian region and your very first glimpse at the buildings and grounds will very quickly convince you that this is so. Strategically located in the centre of the island, the school provides easy access to all the main beaches and the airport, but with world-class recreational facilities available on campus, you might not want to leave! All training takes place in the main building with full use of the educational facilities and resources, including the school computer labs.
Just look at these pictures:
Rather sadly, and just like Christmas, the CELTA with IH Bangkok in Phuket comes but once a year! If only we could offer it more often…
The Phuket Plus package
Once again, the IH Bangkok boffins are able to offer you the opportunity to take advantage of our course, food and accommodation package – something that takes the organizational hassle out of preparing for the course leaving you to focus on the CELTA as you are meant to.
Each trainee is housed in a private room within the onsite halls of residence, each with an en-suite bath / shower room. Trainees who live on-site will also have the exclusive use of a communal lounge with satellite TV for those lighter moments and keeping up to date with world news. For the slightly more active there is a pool table and table tennis table in the common room. For those of you who are really energetic, there is a whole host of facilities that include a fully-equipped sports hall, tennis courts, a playing field and two swimming pools, one of which is Olympic size.
For just US$2,745 you receive not only your training and accommodation, but you are also catered for on a full-board basis 5 days a week. Trainee teachers are able to enjoy the wide range of both Thai and international dishes offered by the British International School refectory. There is even an option to purchase food at weekends if you like it that much. There is also a school shop that will cater for all your necessities – and the not quite so necessary munchies required during intensive periods of study!
As with all our packages you may of course decide to stay off site whilst taking the course, but if you can get a better deal than this – then it really would be Christmas!
