What is the CELTA course?

CELTA is the most highly recognised and regarded initial English teaching certification worldwide. It’s awarded by the University of Cambridge’s English Language Assessment, meaning you can rely on the CELTA's quality and accreditation. Every year, more than 10,000 people the world over complete a CELTA course.

It is the most widely sought after TEFL/TESOL certificate by employers worldwide.

CELTA Course Aims

The main aim of the CELTA course is to provide introductory training if you have little or no previous experience of teaching languages. It may also be suitable if you have some experience, but little previous training.

CELTA Course Entry Requirements

  1. The minimum age is 18
  2. Applicants must have a standard of education which would allow entry to Higher Education.
  3. They must also have an awareness of language and a competence in English, both written and spoken, that enables them to follow the course and have the potential to develop the necessary skills to become an effective teacher and to complete successfully the written assignments and the assessment of teaching practice.

CELTA Course Content

The course is highly practical in emphasis and will require a lot of hard work and commitment from you.

It is designed to enable you to:

  1. develop your language awareness
  2. appreciate the cultural and individual needs of learners
  3. become familiar with the principles and practice of effective English language teaching
  4. develop basic skills for teaching adults
  5. identify and exploit appropriate resources and materials
  6. identify opportunities for future professional development

You will be kept fully informed of your progress and will have the opportunity to discuss your work in detail during your individual tutorials.

The CELTA is awarded to those who pass each of the two assessed components of the course:

  1. Planning and teaching
  2. Classroom-related written assignments

The assessment is validated by an external assessor, appointed by Cambridge, who visits the course to assess the general standard of the course work. There is no final practical or written examination.

With your certificate we provide a written report, indicating your strengths and weaknesses, and certificates and reports are sent out approximately one month after the end of the course, when the results have been validated by Cambridge.

CELTA Course Formats

The full-time course lasts four weeks and is highly intensive.  Teaching practice and lesson observation take place at the Centre.
