ELSTA is an association for educators in Ireland only.  


We are an association for the school sector (early childhood education, primary education, post primary education, further education and we work in collaboration with some partners in higher education.

We are not an association for adult education or whose remit it is to teach adults English.


If you work as a TEFL teacher please apply to join ELT Ireland here. If you are a volunteer English teacher, work abroad or work remotely teaching abroad, please be aware we can only accommodate our members who work in the school sector in Ireland. 


We do not cater for private English language teachers and tutors or volunteers, unfortunately as we are a voluntary organisation and there are many teachers/school staff for whom we must prioritise in our limited time.

We do not offer career advice for people interested in coming to work in Ireland as teachers. 

Thank you for your understanding.

This is a membership form for educators in Ireland only who would like to join ELSTA.
