What is the Cambridge CELTA?

The Cambridge University Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) is the most widely-recognized qualification in the world for the Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages or TESOL. Over ten thousand people take the CELTA course each year.

The CELTA is an introductory course for teachers who have little or no previous English language teaching experience. It is also taken by teachers who already have some classroom practice in teaching languages but little previous training. It is also increasingly taken by US or Canadian instructors who do have greater experience in the field but wish to gain employment outside North America, Korea or Japan, and at the same time refresh their technical skills and contribute to their personal development. Teachers with an MA in TESOL or Applied Linguistics also look to the course to provide the practical component so often lacking in a university-bound curriculum.

What are the entry requirements for the course?

Applicants should:

  • be at least 20 years old at the start of the course
  • have a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry into higher education
  • have a competence in English, both written and spoken, which will enable them both to follow the course and teach at a range of levels
  • have the potential to develop the necessary skills to become effective teachers of English and to successfully complete the written assignments and the assessment of practice teaching.
