CELTA - Cambridge English Language Assessment's Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults is one of the world's foremost initial qualifications for people who wish to become professional teachers of English language. It is accepted throughout the world by organisations which employ English language teachers.

Cambridge English Language Assessment works with international ELT organisations to ensure the acceptance of Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) globally. According to Cambridge English Language Assessment more than 10,000 candidates complete a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) course each year.

The Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) course will be your passport into TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

ELT (English Language Teaching) was once commonly referred to as TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) but there was never a qualification known as TEFL.

The Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) is the most widely accepted initial teaching qualification.

CELTA candidates come from all walks of life. Many are recent university graduates, but others are already qualified as teachers of other subjects or are professionals in other fields looking for a change of career or a career break.

Most candidates see CELTA as the starting point of a long-term career in English Language Teaching (ELT). CELTA is suitable for those who wish to work in the field of ELT either within or outside their own country. Some candidates may have a short-term motive for teaching English and enrol on a CELTA course to gain the confidence and skills to teach English professionally.

CELTA is also suitable for students working on gap year programmes which include teaching English to adults.

Applicants do not need to have English as their first language, but must have a standard of English which will enable them to teach at a range of levels.

There is now quite a well-established career structure within the field in the UK. As a newly qualified teacher, you might consider looking for a job which will provide you with support for two to three years then consider taking the next-level qualification DELTA (Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults). After this, you might think about moving into teacher support in the role of senior teacher. After gaining some more experience, many teachers go on to do an MA in ELT before moving into teacher training or ELT management.

Course Feedback

I took this course in May and have stayed in touch with several of my coursemates since. We are all in agreement that even though it could be challenging at times, it was absolutely worthwhile and has made us into much better teachers than we would have been without it. The tutors provided constructive feedback while always being very encouraging, the theory side that they delivered was engaging and genuinely useful (not always my experience with professional development courses!), and even several months later they have been happy to continue giving support with careers advice, and sometimes my general questions about living in Vietnam as a foreigner. The course administrator Minh is also excellent and the whole course feels very well organised, which is essential as there is a lot to fit in to a relatively short space of time. The building is located in a nice district of HCMC a short distance from the city centre, and the classrooms have all the modern equipment e.g. smart boards that you would expect. I really can't recommend this course highly enough to anyone who wants to be an EFL teacher, whether in Vietnam or elsewhere. It will give you a really good foundation for English language teaching as a career, and if you're new to the country it's a great way to meet people and get advice on the general EFL landscape here from people who actually know what they're talking about. It's also pretty good fun :) Definitely worth a couple of sleepless nights!

, CELTA student,

I learned a TON and I think that this course was well worth the value. The instructors kept it interesting and challenging! Definitely would recommend!!

, CELTA Online student,

The CELTA course has been a great experience for me! The tutors really support you every step of the way! Initially, I was worried about being able to pass as I've never taught before, besides a short period of tutoring, but I was able to quickly grow during the 1-month course and I'm even teaching in Vietnam a couple of months after receiving my CELTA certification! The tutors were the best part of the course for sure.
