Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA)

The CELTA course provides initial teacher training, leading to a Certificate in English language Teaching to Adults.

CELTA is ideal for people without previous teaching experience who want to teach English as a Foreign Language (EFL).

CELTA provides further training for PGCE / Cert Ed teachers with no previous training in English as a Foreign Language (EFL).

CELTA is popular with overseas qualified teachers who want to update their methodology and learn about new teaching strategies.

The University of Cambridge CELTA is the only independently moderated TEFL training certificate and is highly regarded by employers round the world. CELTA provides practical teaching experience, where trainees learn by doing.
