TEFL & TESOL Courses in Melbourne (3)
Melbourne Training Associates
We founded MTA to create an environment where high quality teacher training and language training are prioritised. We are proud of the high standard of our courses; we do more than provide you with the generic materials and training that most leading institutions operate with today.
We provide tailored language development for individuals and small groups, timetabled to suit, with online components, tutorials and a flexible learning environment. At most language schools the students fit into the class; at MTA we create the class to fit the student. Our classes are smaller and we have the expertise to create materials for our students’ own specific development. Because of this we are able to meet our students’ needs faster and more effectively, leading to excellent results.
We are also passionate about foreign languages and embracing multiculturalism. We speak French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish. Our awareness of how languages work has been gained through teaching across the globe. Our extensive teacher-training experience, both in Australia and overseas, means that we are up-to-date with new methodologies and relevant advice for the ‘international’ teacher. Our language classes are currently delivered to both skilled migrants as well as new arrivals to Australia seeking asylum in this country.
At MTA we are committed to moving towards paperless education, by using a combination of new technology and new approaches to teaching which focus on the students themselves as a resource.
Teaching House: Melbourne Centre
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.

ATA TESOL College has been servicing the ESL industry since 2003. We are an award-winning TESOL College for being the largest and best private TESOL provider in Australia
Our motto: "Do what you've always done and you'll get what you've always got"
In this constantly changing industry, we can't afford to rest on our successes and we are constantly reinventing ourselves to cater to changing international requirements and graduate needs. One way this is demonstrated is with our ever increasing and diverse range of electives that add value to our courses and thereby our graduates, by increasing their knowledge base and marketability when teaching both in Australia and overseas.
We are successful because we listen to our customers, graduates and the industry itself and make sure we are flexible enough to move with the times.
Our greatest asset is our customers. Without YOU, we wouldn't exist. Therefore, our goal is to offer you the best possible course and resources we can so as to produce excellent teachers. These teachers who not only need to learn English in theory, but most importantly need to know how to use the language effectively in everyday situations.
Our most popular programs are our 120-hour Advanced TESOL Certificate program and the 240 hour Professional TESOL Certificate Program. These programs continue to grow rapidly in popularity, and have gained overwhelming worldwide respect and recognition. In the past four years thousands of students have completed our programs. This respect and recognition is shown by the ever-expanding number of schools and recruiters hiring our graduates.
We offer excellent educational value and flexible study options and are successfully producing world-class English language teachers who are highly sought after internationally.
