Madrid has long been one of the most popular cities in Europe for teaching English abroad as there are always jobs available. If you are looking to find a good quality teaching position as soon as you graduate, then Madrid is the perfect choice for your CertTESOL training course.
Studying and working in the Spanish capital is a real pleasure as it is one of the friendliest cities in the region and a true multicultural center where people of vastly different backgrounds live and work together. You will also find there are plenty of things to occupy your free time no matter what your interests. Art lovers can feast on dozens of famous museums and galleries, while at night you can enjoy the diverse entertainment options. Live music, dance clubs, local cuisine, fine wines, theatre, Madrid has it all.
When exploring the city center you will probably be happy on foot, but if you want to see more of the city you can jump on any of the public transport options including the Metro, buses, suburban trains, or even the public bicycle rental service (BiciMad).

With over 60 years of teaching experience between them, the tutors at the Madrid center certainly know what they are talking about. They will guide you through the CertTESOL course and help you find employment upon graduation. As the course is recognised by the British Council, graduates can apply for British Council teaching jobs that are available in countries worldwide. The CertTESOL is also welcomed by many other international educational organisations that provide English instruction to students of all backgrounds and ages.
The Madrid training center is generally regarded as one of the most reputable in the world as it meets a QCF Level 5 high-quality standard and it allows trainees to further specialize in either teaching business English or teaching young learners.
Worldwide, Lifetime Job Placement
Another major reason why the Madrid center stands out is its lifelong job support service. All our graduates can take advantage of our extensive support services for as long as they need them, regardless of where in the world they would like to work. On top of this, we also guarantee a 1-year teaching job to any graduate who chooses to stay and work in Madrid. These positions are at state/public or chartered bilingual schools and come with good pay and conditions and the option to renew the contract after the first year.
As most housing agencies in Madrid charge fees and security deposits that can amount to as much as 1500 euro, the center’s own recommended accommodation is a popular alternative. For a fee of 625 euro for the four week period of the course you will have a private room in an apartment that is shared with an ex-student or a local Spanish person who attends the free English classes that we run during the training course. All the apartments we use are located in safe and pleasant neighbourhoods that offer local services such as supermarkets and restaurants. They are also within a short journey of the training center.
We are also happy to help you find any other style of accommodation that you prefer, whether it is a hotel, hostel, guest house, homestay or even an Airbnb. As we know the local area like the back of our hand, we can offer sound advice on the best places to stay depending on your individual needs.
