MTA is proud to have received excellent feedback from our students.

CELTA is the best hands-on course for any aspiring ESL teacher!

Doing the course at MTA has given me confidence and a strong base for creating engaging and productive lessons. The tutors were extremely professional, dedicated and full of passion for teaching.

My CELTA qualification proved invaluable when applying for my current position as a corporate trainer in Malaysia.

The experience gained whilst with MTA was crucial to building my professional character as a soft skills ESL teacher. Barbara, Niki and Scott will impart you with the knowledge and share with you the wisdom of masterful educators.


With my CELTA qualification, I found it easy to secure ESL work in Chile.

The course is very interesting and enjoyable. Niki is a perfect role model for any new teacher. She is extremely inspirational and has filled me with the confidence to teach any student at any level of English. Thank you Niki.

The CELTA course provided by Melbourne Training Associates has been without a doubt, one of the most rewarding and beneficial undertakings of my professional development.

The knowledge, insight and confidence I have gained as a result have allowed me to teach a range of learners in a variety of settings and launched my teaching career in China. The mentoring, support, education and training I received on the course was invaluable and I would wholeheartedly recommend this course to those considering a challenging, engaging and exciting step in their career or professional development.


During my CELTA at Melbourne Training Associates I received plenty of one-to-one tuition and feedback, regarding both assignments and teaching practice.

After finishing the course Barbara, Niki and Scott have continued to support me by helping me find work and keep me posted on job possible opportunities


I’m off to France!

Managed to get a job as an English teaching assistant in a high school; I think it will give me a taste of teaching, and let me see if it is the thing for me. Thanks again for helping me pass the course!

CELTA will give a great start to a first time teacher or a boost to one with experience already.

Your teaching will improve in leaps and bounds and so will your confidence.

The course was comprehensive and very practical and the tutors very competent and supportive.

The course provided useful tools to use as a teacher for effective learning and the tutors showed how these are used in the classroom in real-life situations.


When I got enrolled with MTA it was like just another academy.

As time rolled on and things became tougher I realized it was not only me, but the entire staff who wanted me to succeed. The never- failing support of the staff was appreciated. I think it was a wise choice to choose this academy.

“CELTA got me work in Russia”

I chose to study at MTA because this was the clearest pathway to CELTA. In choosing MTA, I received so much more from this journey:
the support and encouragement was invaluable in developing my confidence as a teacher, by modelling passion with professionalism, the staff gifted me with an inspiring life-lesson and as I became the student-teacher, the creative presentation of theory to practice became relevant and cohesive. I have since completed a 10 month contract with International House – BKC Moscow teaching children, teens and adults, General and Business English classes.
MTA equipped me with a wonderful teaching tool-box that enabled me to not only succeed, but to enjoy the experience!
