CELTA is an introductory course designed for people with little or no previous English language teaching experience or training. CELTA provides you with the opportunity to teach English as a second language all over the world. CELTA will give you the skills and confidence to teach English to adults whether you’re a recent graduate or looking for a career change.
You don’t need previous English language teaching experience. The course will give you new teaching techniques and a qualification to confirm your ability to do the job properly.
You should be aged 20 or over, though we will accept candidates aged 18-19 at our discretion.
Your educational standard should be equivalent to that required for entry into higher education. If English is not your first language you need to have a minimum language level equivalent to C2 on the Common European Framework (CEF).
Acceptance onto a CELTA course is conditional upon successful completion of an application form (which includes a Language Awareness Task) and an interview conducted by IH London.
CELTA training will help you:
There is no final exam. Assessment is based on teaching practice and written assignments. You need to pass both elements to be awarded the CELTA Certificate
Please note: This is a demanding course, there is a lot of work outside of timetabled hours which mostly consists of lesson preparation and written assignments. You must have the motivation to become an effective teacher and complete assignments and assessments throughout.
Download the application form and language awareness task, complete and save it, and return it to email@example.com. For any other enquires please call Jess or Charlotte in Teacher Training at IH London on: 020 7611 2414/ 2417
Our courses are regularly oversubscribed and they fill up fast. We strongly recommend applying early to avoid disappointment.
Once we have received the form we will respond to you within three working days to advise you of the results and discuss the next steps. Acceptance on to the CELTA is dependent on a successful application interview.
