In Response To: Re: CELTA vs. S.I.T. (Matthew)

As a former Director of Studies managing students and teachers and as a former ESL school director, I noted that graduates from the SIT TESOL Cert entering the classroom right off the course tended to be calmer and more focused on the students whereas the CELTA graduates largely had more performance anxiety. Of course , that settled down after a few weeks and I am a fan of the CELTA and Trainity Cert too, BUT, I think the SIT reflective element really helps teachers focus more on student needs and have a less harried experience on the course. Having run both courses at different times in my academic supervision career, I'd say that SIT TESOL trainees seem much less stressed but achieve similar outcomes. Also , I believe that SIT brings the added attraction of credit towards a graduate TESOL qualification.
