CELTA is one of the most widely taken qualifications of its kind. It is highly respected and gives you the skills you need to teach English and pursue a highly rewarding teaching career anywhere in the world.

The CELTA course is designed to help you develop effective and principled teaching practice. As well as receiving input from your tutors about key topic areas related to teaching English, you will also have substantial hands-on teaching practice to turn theory into practice. CELTA courses are designed by individual centres, based on specifications produced by Cambridge English Language Assessment.

  • Learners and teachers, and the teaching and learning context
  • Language analysis and awareness
