The Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) course provides practical, initial training in teaching English as a foreign language. No previous experience is necessary; this course will help you develop all the essential skills you need.
The CELTA qualification is awarded by Cambridge English, part of Cambridge University and is the most widely recognised TEFL qualification in the world.
You can gain your CELTA qualification face to face in Norwich, fully online or as a mixed-mode course. You will have sessions on methodology and language awareness, extensive teaching practice and have experienced tutors on-hand to help you every step of the way. You will also teach a real class for six hours, observed by experienced trainers who will give you feedback on how to develop your teaching.
As well as the supervised teaching practice and taught sessions, you will observe other classes, undertake four written assignments and have at least one individual tutorial. This step-by-step approach will broaden your knowledge of language and methodology, giving you all the skills you need to walk straight into the classroom.
