Pay It Forward:

Our Scholarships


Ever feel like you could be going places, just need a hand to get started?


Here at The ELT Skills Academy we know we couldn't have succeeded in building our business alone. 

We have been fortunate to have mentors and lots of support, but know this isn't always true for everyone. 

To support people who might not have the same opportunities we have had, we run regular scholarships and volunteer our time on a weekly basis.

Find out more about both below.

Pay It Forward


Each year we gift free scholarship places on each of our courses. 

This opportunity is open to anyone who:

  • is committed to building their own freelance teaching business right now.
  • values community and supporting others.
  • is intending to "pay it forward" in their own way in the future.
  • is willing to share their business building story with our community in the future. This could be a vlog or blog post, social media take-over or another form if you have something in mind.

Upcoming scholarships will be announced via our social media channels or you can sign up to our mailing list to be among the first to hear when they are released.
