Founded in 2011, The English Teacher Training College is a not-for-profit Austrian College with a dual mission. Firstly, we aim to provide a practical education in teacher training for trainees from the English-speaking world based solely on the candidate's academic merit and potential as teachers and cultural ambassadors, and not their ability to pay for a training course. Secondly, as a charity outreach, to promote language learning, cultural exchange, and understanding between English-speaking countries and Austria by placing hundreds of teachers from English-speaking nations in Austrian classrooms, we aim to reach all Austrian children with a free, fun, native-led day of active English learning by the year 2020.
We provide internationally recognized qualifications, including both the Trinity College London CertTESOL and the Cambridge University CELT-P.
Unique to the courses we run is that due to our close ties with Austrian schools, we provide trainees with over 250 hours of practical teaching experience in classrooms, meaning they come out of their chosen course not only certified but fully competent and experienced teachers, and are highly desired by future employers.
