The city

Warsaw is the capital of Poland and a dynamic and forward-looking city of just under 2 million which is full of diversity and opportunity. At the heart of Poland, with good transport links to other parts of the country and beyond, Warsaw has a good range of all the educational, cultural, recreational and commercial facilities that you would expect to find in a modern European capital. It is also a major international tourist destination and an important economic hub in Central Europe.

The British Council Warsaw – the centre and its facilities

The British Council in Warsaw is home to a thriving English language teaching centre. All the teaching staff, some of whom you will have the opportunity to observe teaching our regular classes, have only two things in common; they are all qualified and highly professional. Most are also highly experienced and Delta qualified but, as a CELTA centre, we believe it is important for us to provide opportunities for recently qualified teachers too. We’re located in the heart of the city, near the central train station and a metro station. All our classrooms are designed for purpose, spacious, light, air-conditioned and well-equipped. There are interactive whiteboards and computers in every room. In short, we believe we have some of the best facilities available.

The CELTA Course in Warsaw

Our CELTA tutors have been successfully running CELTA courses in Warsaw for over 10 years and all of our tutors are actively involved in courses throughout the year. However, we strongly believe that it is important to maintain professional diversity and so our tutors don’t work exclusively on CELTA courses. Our involvement in other professional activities, whether that be teaching or working on other teacher training projects, helps us stay fresh and motivated. Our trainees are now teaching English all around the world but we often meet ex-trainees at conferences, many return to complete their Delta course with us and some are now teaching colleagues at the British Council.
