Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) is a qualification that gives teachers all the training they need to be highly successful language teachers and opens doors to exciting teaching opportunities all over the world.
First introduced in 1998, the CELTA is taken by over 10,000 trainee teachers every year and is accepted by the majority of language schools, and thousands of universities and teaching organisations around the world.
Because CELTA places equal emphasis on both the principles of language teaching and practical teaching, it shows potential employers that a teacher has successfully completed a challenging programme of training, exploring not only the theory of teaching but also gaining
valuable experience of teaching real classes . As a result, teachers who have the CELTA are favoured over teachers with the majority of similar qualifications.
