Frequently Asked Questions

What is CELTA?

is an initial qualification for people with little or no previous
teaching experience and opens up a whole world of exciting teaching
opportunities. Because it is awarded by Cambridge ESOL, part of the
world-famous University of Cambridge, you can rely on its quality and recognition.

Over 10,000 people successfully complete a CELTA course each year.

How does CELTA relate to TEFL/TESOL?

or 'TESOL' are terms often used to describe qualifications for English
Language teachers. CELTA, the most widely taken initial TESOL/TEFL
qualification of its kind in the world, was previously known as CTEFLA
and the 'RSA certificate'.

Who is CELTA for?

is suitable for a wide range of people. It is the ideal qualification
for those who want to start English language teaching anywhere in the
world. It is also suitable for people who want a career break or change
and for those already teaching English who have no formal qualification.

What does CELTA involve?

can take CELTA full time (typically four to five weeks), or part time
(from a few months to over a year). Your chosen course:

  • teaches you the principles of effective teaching
  • provides a range of practical skills for teaching English to adult learners
  • gives you hands-on teaching practice.

There are five main units of learning:

  • Learners and teachers, and the teaching and learning context
  • Language analysis and awareness
  • Language skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing
  • Planning and resources for different contexts
  • Developing teaching skills and professionalism.

will be assessed throughout the course, with no final examination. An
external assessor, appointed by Cambridge ESOL, moderates each course.
There are two components of assessment:

  1. Teaching practice
    will teach for a total of 6 hours, working with classes at two levels
    of ability. Assessment is based on your overall performance at the end
    of the 6 hours.
  2. Written assignmentsYou
    will complete four written assignments: one focusing on adult learning;
    one on the language system of English; one on language skills; and one
    on classroom teaching.

To be awarded the certificate you must pass both components. There are three grades — Pass, Pass 'B' and Pass 'A'.

Who recognises CELTA?

is accepted throughout the world by organisations which employ English
Language teachers. The Cambridge CELTA has been accredited by Ofqual
(the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) at Level
5 on the National Qualifications Framework for England. Cambridge ESOL
also works with international ELT organisations to ensure the
acceptance of CELTA globally.

Am I eligible to apply?

Ideally you should:

  • have a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry into higher education
  • be aged 20 or over
  • have a standard of English which will enable you to teach at a range of levels.

may still accept you if you do not have formal qualifications at this
level but can demonstrate that you would be likely to complete the
course successfully. Some centres may, at their discretion, accept
applicants aged between 18 and 20.

How do I apply?

courses are designed by individual centres, based on specifications
produced by Cambridge ESOL. They are available at over 286 approved
centres in 54 countries, providing almost 900 CELTA courses every year.
Contact your chosen centre directly for detailed course information.
