What is the CELTA course?

CELTA –the Certificate in English Language Teaching to Speakers of Other Languages– is the most highly recognised and regarded initial English teaching certification worldwide. It’s awarded by the University of Cambridge Assessment English, meaning you can rely on the CELTA’s quality and accreditation. CELTA will allow you to travel around the world, teaching English to speakers of other languages.

What is the CELTA course?

  • It is the most frequently sought after qualification for TEFL jobs worldwide.

  • Moderated by the University of Cambridge.

  • We have highly qualified, experienced trainers, including two CELTA assessors on staff, who also moderate other centres and courses around the world.

  • It is a course only offered by Authorised and well-established Teacher Education centres.

  • It is recognised as a Level 5 Qualification by the British Curriculum Authority, so it follows an authorised syllabus.

  • It is moderated and assessed by Cambridge ESOL every time a course runs, not just on an occasional basis.

Will the fact that I’ve taken CELTA Online appear on my certificate?

No. CELTA Online leads to exactly the same certificate as the face-to-face CELTA. Assessed outcomes are the same for all trainees, so there is no need for separate certification. We will also issue a second and separate certificate for the extra 50hrs of work you will engage in exclusively focused on developing your new online teaching English: Certificate in Teaching English Online.
