ILA Vietnam is a foreign-owned education and training company that offers a broad range of educational programs and services. In 2013 we educated more than 35,000 students at ILA centres in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Da Nang and Vung Tau becoming a clear leader in the Vietnamese market. Our range of CELTA certificate courses, DELTA certificate courses and YL Extension courses are offered all year round.
Our trainers are experienced teachers who have taken rigorous training and assessment before being specially approved to run and manage the teacher training courses offered by Cambridge English. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from a variety of teaching contexts to the training process, as well as a great deal of enthusiasm for the profession. The feedback from course graduates often suggests that it is the tutors who really make our courses what they are: learning experiences that rate among the most rewarding of their professional lives
Tara is the manager of the Teacher Training Department and can often be found training on our CELTA and YL extension courses.

After undertaking the YL Extension course herself in 2011, she became Academic Coordinator at ILA centre 1.
She has gained valuable experience in assisting teachers with professional development ever since. She successfully completed her DELTA early in 2012 and subsequently became Academic Manager of ILA Danang before moving back to Ho Chi Minh City to become Teacher Training Manager.
