Training and Professional Affiliations in Peru

Updated 13 March 2014

If you are in Lima, there are many congresses and conferences for you to attend. If you are in the provinces, there are opportunities to go to conferences, just not as many as in Lima. Peruvians stress training sessions, so your school may offer these free to their employees. If not, try to attend a conference, as it allows you to do some networking.

Try to have a section on your CV that lists a few of the recent conferences that you have attended. There are lots of sample CVs and resumes out there to help you create a great one.

You can read more about training sessions in the article Conferences and Training in Peru. In addition, there are quite a number of professional affiliations that you can join. Some offer discounts for conferences and others publish newsletters.

One tip to remember is that speaking Spanish will help you greatly. You'll be treated differently than if you speak English all the time, it'll help you assimilate to Peru, and it'll make networking easier. If you're looking to learn Spanish, check out Fluenz Spanish, Rosetta Stone, and Synergy Spanish.

  1. Sharon, the course the Britanico offers in not the CELTA.

    The Cambridge CELTA or Trinity TESOL are not available in Peru at all.

    If somebody wished to take one of these courses (and I strongly recommend they do as most other courses will not be recognised by reputable institutes) they should take them before the come to Peru.

  2. Hi,
    Britanico does offer the course, but only to its teachers.
