Teacher Training at Teaching House

All Teaching House courses are run by University of Cambridge-approved trainers, who are all highly experienced ESL teachers, having taught for a minimum of five years in a range of different countries. Our trainers have minimum qualifications of a CELTA TESOL and either the DELTA TESOL (Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults) and/or a Master's degree in TESOL. All Cambridge-qualified trainers have undergone a rigorous TESOL training process lasting several months and have been externally assessed by a representative from the University of Cambridge.

Teaching House staff also maintain an industry website called My Teaching House ( - a site for bringing teachers together to discuss relevant topics, download lesson materials, locate language schools, find new teaching positions and to access a range of other useful tools. The site has over 11,000 job contacts.

The combination of our high-quality course standards, our affiliation to the International House World Organization and the accreditation provided by the University of Cambridge ensures that our teachers continue to obtain desirable positions whether they choose to teach English in the United States or abroad.

Teaching House runs three different TESOL teacher training courses, all of which are accredited by the University of Cambridge:
