As one of the world’s oldest cities with a history dating back over 3,000 years, Athens is a major draw for international visitors. The city is also a hotspot for English language teaching jobs, making it equally popular with people looking to take a CELTA training course. During your stay you can explore all the city’s famous landmarks, such as the Acropolis and the Parthenon, and enjoy some of the best beaches in the region.

Athens is known for its warm welcome and for being one of the safest capital cities in Europe. It also enjoys a warm and pleasant climate, a rich cultural heritage, and countless outdoor cafes, restaurants and taverns where you can sample the local cuisine at prices that are considerably lower than most other European capitals.
Many trainees who choose Athens as their training center find time before, during, or after their course to visit one or more of the stunning Greek islands that are close by. Santorini and Mykonos are popular as they are only a 30 minute flight away, while Hydra and Spetses are only a two hour journey by hydrofoil.
Our central location means you will be close to all the city’s main attractions and close to all the main transport links so you will have no trouble exploring far and wide. In the immediate area of the school are some popular landmarks including the House of Parliament, the National Library and the Academy of Letters, as well as all the amenities you will need during your stay.
The Athens center has been in operation for many years and in that time more than 3,000 trainees have passed through its doors and gone on to teach all over the world. The center is both modern and well-equipped with all the facilities required of an educational center. The Athens CELTA course continues to be very popular due to its:
- High quality tutoring and extensive support during and after your course
- Outstanding track record of results
- Strong social media presence which is used for the benefit of our trainees and alumni
- International PLN (Personal Learning Network), a resource that is available to our alumni for life
- Experience working with thousands of teachers from around the globe
