CELTA stands for Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults and is the industry standard English language teaching certificate. It is accepted by employers worldwide and is accredited and externally moderated by Cambridge English, part of the University of Cambridge. The CELTA is the most recognised route into the English language teaching profession for people with little or no experience of teaching English as a foreign language.

The syllabus consists of five units of learning that deal with specific topic areas in the teaching of ESOL.
We do all we can prior to the course to ensure candidates stand the best possible chance of successfully completing the award. The pre-course process includes:
The full-time course is very intensive. Expect your days, evenings and most of your weekends to be taken up with planning, teaching, reflecting on lessons and completing four written assignments. It is strongly advised that you have no other professional or personal commitments during the course. From the beginning you will be an active participant in your own training and development.
If successful, a few days after the course, you will receive an electronic version of your end-of-course report, which contains your final recommended grade. This acts as a reference from your course tutor and can be used to start applying for jobs until the hard copy of your CELTA certificate arrives from Cambridge English. You can expect the official certificate to arrive within two months of completing the course.
Your tutors are all qualified to Diploma level in the Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and as such possess years of experience in the field of ELT. In addition, they are certified by Cambridge English and regularly undergo training and professional development to ensure they continue to improve. They combine professional expertise with an enthusiastic and encouraging approach to training.
The CELTA assessment is made not only on your ability to teach and your language awareness, but also on your overall professional attitude and behaviour. You will be assessed by the course tutors but the course will also be moderated by an external assessor who visits the course for quality assurance purposes.
The overall assessment aims for each unit are that you should be able to:
The certificate will be awarded to candidates who meet the course requirements and whose performance meets, or exceeds, the criteria in both assessment components. The outcome of the course is decided on a continuous assessment basis, there is no final examination.
