CELTA (Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults)
CELTA is a pre-service course giving you a thorough grounding in all aspects of teaching the English language to adults. One of the most widely taken qualifications of its kind, thousands of people each year choose CELTA to open up a world of exciting English language teaching opportunities. Part of the University of Cambridge and validated by Cambridge English Language Assessment, the Cambridge CELTA course is internationally recognised and accepted by teaching institutions worldwide.
CELTA is ideal for those who:
- have little or no teaching experience
- would like to learn how to teach English to speakers of other languages - the certificate is an essential first step in a career teaching English to speakers of other languages and a minimum requirement for teachers in some countries
- want to increase opportunities of living and working abroad
- wish to obtain a highly respected and internationally recognised qualification that is part of the University of Cambridge and a real benchmark for quality
