CELTA (originally CTEFLA) is the most widely recognised initial qualification for those wishing to start a career in ELT (English Language Teaching) and the minimum required qualification for most serious ELT schools. CELTA is designed for those with no previous ELT experience, or those with some limited experience who feel the need for formal training, new ideas and an approved certificate. It is intended for native English speakers, or non-natives of near-native proficiency.

CELTA is a highly practical course which provides initial training in English language teaching to Adults. Successful CELTA candidates will gain a thorough basic grounding in all areas of modern ELT. It aims at laying a firm foundation on which a teacher can build with experience. The course combines classroom methodology and grounding in language and learning issues with guided and assessed teaching practice. It presents a view of the principles underlying language teaching and deals extensively with the analysis of English from a learner's perspective.

CELTA courses in Seville are full-time 4-week intensive courses of approximately 120 hours, of a very 'hands on' nature, complying fully with the UCLES guidelines and syllabus. You will be teaching from day 2 of the course.

The CELTA demands a great deal of work, both during and after course hours, so you should not take on other work during this time.

CELTA Entry requirements

Cambridge regulations state that candidates must:

  1. be at least 18 years old by the end of the course
  2. have the potential to develop the necessary skills to become effective teachers
  3. have a competence in English, both written and spoken, that enables them to follow the course and complete all the assessed elements successfully.

There is no formal academic entry requirement for CELTA. However, the recommended minimum entry requirement is that candidates should have formal qualifications which would allow entry into higher education in their own country. Most candidates have a first degree. If you are unsure about your eligibility, you can take our CELTA entry eligibility test.

Take a look at our English level comparison tool to see if you qualify to apply.

CELTA Selection Procedure

Selection of candidates is based on the completion of the application form, pre-interview tasks and an interview. Interviews are conducted at the School in Seville, by telephone or via Skype.

Acceptance on the course is by no means automatic: a rigorous selection process is undertaken in the interest of candidates in order to ensure their suitability and a high degree of success on the course.

Acceptance is at the discretion of the centre.

As demand is always high you should submit your application at least 3-4 months prior to the course you wish to take.

There is also some consultation time with the tutor online during the week (an hour or so) once the teaching period has commenced.

CELTA Course Assessment

Assessment of the Cambridge CELTA course is continuous. Progress in practical teaching ability is of the greatest importance, but all aspects of performance and work done on the course are taken into consideration for the final grading, including the candidate's written work, professionalism, and suitability as a future member of staff in an ELT context.

  • Candidates are constantly informed of their progress during the course by written commentary and oral feedback on their teaching practice and written assignments, and by tutorial. This may be formulated in terms of passing and failing.
  • Candidates who successfully complete the CELTA course will receive the Cambridge Certificate. The grades possible are Pass A, Pass B, Pass, or "No Certificate Awarded". In addition, the Teacher Training Centre issues a graded certificate-report. This report describes the candidate's performance in some detail and serves as a vital document to prospective employers.
  • The teacher training centre in Seville cannot enter into either discussion or correspondence concerning results or assessments. Should a candidate wish to lodge any form of complaint, the appropriate channels for doing so will be indicated to them.
