CELTA Jobs in Italy
The recent and quite sudden increase in the demand for CELTA qualified teachers in Italy has meant that there are a number of CELTA positions in Italy and worldwide. Most countries require that you have a minimum of a Bachelors degree but it is still possible to gain a CELTA position in some countries with no degree if you are a native speaker.
There are many web sites that offer details of CELTA Jobs that are available worldwide including this one. Unlike some other sites though, ESL Junction will not charge you for this or any other service. Below you can find more information about Italy
If you have something that you would like to contribute then please contact us. There is a severe lack of information on the internet about CELTA Jobs in Italy so please help us to help other CELTA teachers by contributing.
