The Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) is an initial training course in English Language teaching (ELT). It is one of a number of Cambridge Assessment English certificates and diplomas provided for teachers.
The Cambridge CELTA teacher certificate will help you live and work abroad as well as make it easier for you to get a teaching job anywhere in the world. The Cambridge CELTA course is an internationally recognized course that gives you the necessary skills and knowledge to teach English as a second language to adults. The training is provided by fully certified and experienced Cambridge CELTA teacher trainers.
As CELTA is awarded by Cambridge Assessment English, part of the University of Cambridge, it is internationally recognized, highly respected and it presents a benchmark for quality. The CELTA is the most widely recognised and accepted TESOL certificate.
Another excellent feature of the CELTA, lacking in other trainings, is the teaching practice. On the course, you have an opportunity to teach real students of English, receive feedback on your teaching, as well as observe other teachers – some more experienced, some with little to no experience – teach, and think about their teaching. You will start thinking about teaching in more technical terms and, under the guidance of your tutors, work on becoming a more efficient and more confident teacher!
Who is CELTA for?
CELTA is designed as a pre-service, initial teacher training course for applicants with no previous experience. It may also be suitable for applicants with some experience but little formal training in the field of ELT. It is also suitable for people who have already taught English but have no formal teaching qualifications and teachers of other subjects who wish to retrain as English language teachers. Although designed for native speakers of English, it is also open to non-native speakers who have native speaker competence in both spoken and written English.
