Who’s it for?

People who want to start teaching English as a foreign language & who would like an internationally recognised qualification.


It’s also the ideal course if you’re already teaching and want to gain a formal, internationally-recognised qualification. Awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment (part of the University of Cambridge) it’s the industry standard certificate course, with genuine global recognition.

The CELTA course is very practical and you’ll be teaching from week one. It’s really rewarding and, although it requires a lot of effort, your course tutors will always be there to provide guidance and support.

If English isn’t your first language, you’ll need to be an advanced speaker, with a minimum level of C1 or higher, so you can teach our B2 students. If your level isn’t quite high enough, you can study the same practical content as the CELTA on our ITTC Certificate in TESOL course.
