ABSTRACT: Celta courses are often described in colourful terms by the people who pay good money to take part in them, but what is it like for the trainers? More particularly, how can you become a Celta tutor, how can you get through the approval process, and how can you not only survive, but actually enjoy, your first Celta training year?
Join Anthony Gaughan as he provides answers to these questions, tips and tricks to make your training life less stressful, and some cautionary tales to help you avoid trouble.
