Why do a CELTA in Eastbourne?

Updated: Jan 25

Why do a CELTA course in Eastbourne?
The UK's sunniest place!

Eastbourne is one of England's most attractive settings to study a CELTA course in, whether for the scenery, the friendly atmosphere or the modern while affordable amenities. There are lots of reasons to consider Eastbourne as a place to do your CELTA and here are a few:

  1. The stunning location: Eastbourne is located at the end of the South Downs Way, a beautiful 100-mile long hiking route across the chalky South Downs hills and valleys, including the gorgeous Seven Sisters cliffs just outside Eastbourne. There are countless nature walks and hikes that can be done just a short distance from Eastbourne. And Eastbourne itself is set beside three-miles of beach, with a beautiful historic pier and all the seaside fun you'd expect from a British resort town.

  2. The arts scene: Eastbourne has long been visited by artists, and is home to one of the South Coast's most famous art galleries, the Towner, as well as numerous small galleries and studios. This gives the town a quirky and creative vibe.

  3. The convenience: Eastbourne is very easy to get to, located just a 90-minute train ride from London Victoria station and within easy reach of London Gatwick Airport. It's also a short journey to other south coast towns popular with tourists such as Hastings and Brighton.

  4. The accommodation options: As a classic British seaside resort, Eastbourne is teeming with small hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs. There is something to suit every budget.

DC Teacher Training are delighted to be offering CELTA courses in Eastbourne and we are happy to be working with the very well-regarded Eastbourne language school, ELC to deliver these courses.

A CELTA is an English teaching qualification, accredited by Cambridge, which we are offering both part-time and full-time in our Eastbourne location. The full-time course runs Monday to Friday from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm for four weeks, while the part-time course runs for 12 weeks, on Saturday mornings and Monday and Wednesday evenings. Both courses result in a certificate which will open doors all around the world, as CELTA is the most recognised English teaching qualification in the world.

Dr Connor O'Donoghue hails from Ireland and he started teaching English as a foreign language in Poland in 2003 and he became a CELTA trainer in 2008. He has taught and trained in Ireland, the UK, France, Italy, Slovenia, Macedonia, Poland, Russia, Kazakhstan and Vietnam. Connor also holds a Masters and a PhD in Education from Trinity College in Dublin. He has previously managed large teacher training centres in Vietnam and in London before founding DC Teacher Training.
