    St. Giles gave me the tools to start a new job career in teaching English. I gained enough knowledge to have me confident in my future plans. The school is spacious, clean and organized. The staff is friendly and professional. Overall it was a good experience.

    I took the one-month CELTA intensive course at St. Giles NYC in July 2017. It was a challenging but enjoyable experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. The trainers were very professional and clearly knew their stuff. We were a small group of CELTA trainees, which was a big plus for me. I felt the trainers were able to give each trainee more time and attention. Overall it was a great experience.

    I completed a Trinity course at St Giles Eastbourne in 2008, and thought I should post a review here as no one else seems to have done!I had been teaching for two years before taking this course, and of all the things I learnt on the course, perhaps the most important thing was the realisation that I should have taken the plunge and done the course earlier!I wont write too much about the course itself, that information can be found anywhere, but I will say a few things about St Giles, and my course experience there.The two tutors worked perfectly well together, with a good balance between their personalities, skills and approaches. I was actually quite inspired by them really, and wished for the charisma of one, and the knowledge of the other. A good team I think.St Giles Eastbourne is a nice school, conveniently located on the outskirts of the town, small enough for the experience to seem personal, big enough that you get a chance to meet and teach a variety of students in a nice setting. The only downside, and I should mention one really…is that with a full complement of 12 trainees, the training room felt a little small sometimes. But that really is my only gripe, and its a small one at that. On that basis, I am going to score 5 stars in the ratings box above in the first 4 categories, but slip to 4 stars on the lesson plan guidance. This is because I personally need more time to think over any changes to my lesson plans…Generally my lesson plans were reviewed in the morning, with changes to be made for my afternoon lesson. I guess I wanted more time than this, but this might be just me…in fact, I think it is just me….I’ve then given another 5 stars, before slipping down to a 3 star for the job placement. I have given this a slightly below average rating as during the job placement input session we were introduced to a recruiter for ILA. The positions she was offering were for degree holders…and at that time, a number of the people in the room didnt hold degrees, so I felt jobs many of us couldnt apply for didnt really help. I didnt discuss any further options with St Giles, but in fairness to them, this was possibly because I already had work lined up. Facilities and resources I gave 4 stars, as the training room was a little small as mentioned above.Overally though…I really enjoyed my St Giles Trinity experience, and couldnt recommend them or the course high enough. Having spent a month learning how to teach at St Giles, I felt a lot better equipped to teach and have improved a lot as an EFL teacher. St Giles Eastbourne is a great place to take a Trinity course, and is highly recommended IMO!
