CELTA is the gold standard teaching qualification!

CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is a qualification for teaching English as a foreign language.

Assessment

Candidates are assessed throughout the course. There is no final examination.

1.

Teaching practice - Trainees teach for a total of six hours, working with classes at two levels of ability. Assessment is based on overall performance at the end of the six hours.

2.

Written assignments - Trainees need to complete four written assignments: one focusing on adult learning; one on the language systems of English; one on language skills; and one is a reflection of your own teaching.

ES documents

Entry requirements:

To be eligible to apply for the CELTA course, candidates need to:

  • Be 18 years old or above
  • Have an education equivalent to University entry
  • Have an English level of C1+/C2 or IELTS 7.5 (with min. 7.5 in writing & speaking)

Celta courses always bring together a wonderfully diverse group of people, each with their unique strengths and challenges. The CELTA course is not a competitive course, which means that trainees help, support and learn from each other throughout the course, creating a very positive and supportive learning environment. Another unique point about the CELTA course is that it makes you instantly employable internationally. It's a passport to employment or better job opportunities globally.
