What is CELTA?
CELTA is the Certificate of English Language to Speakers of Other Languages. It’s an English language teaching qualification for people with little or no previous experience teaching English.
Who is CELTA for?
It’s for people who want to become English language teachers:
- with a very high level of English (equivalent to IELTS 7.5 in all skills or CEFR C1) who are interested in a career teaching English
- who are at least 18 (it is generally recommended that candidates should be over the age of 20)
- who have the potential to develop the necessary skills to become an effective teacher and to complete the written assignments and practice teaching successfully
- who normally have a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry to higher education.
