Why do the CELTA?

You’re going to embark on a journey into a new career and whether you go on to teach for 9 months or 9 years, you’ll enjoy the experience so much more if you know what you’re doing.

This is exactly what the CELTA will do for you; it will give you the confidence, experience and know-how to teach good, effective lessons, which means both you and your students will enjoy them.

In this regard, the CELTA course stands out head and shoulders above other TESOL courses:

  1. The CELTA is strictly regulated by Cambridge University, who ensures the course tutors, the curriculum and the center adhere to its high quality standards. You can trust the quality of any Cambridge University CELTA course.
  2. CELTA teacher trainers are the best in the field of TESOL: they have years of teaching experience and have trained extensively to become a CELTA teacher trainer. Cambridge University prides itself on the quality of their approved trainers.
  3. On the CELTA course, no trainer is responsible for more than 6 trainees at any time. Therefore you always receive the individual attention and detailed feedback you need to learn and progress quickly as a teacher.
  4. Due to the value given to Cambridge University within the TESOL industry, and the role CELTA has had in training teachers for over four decades, no other course is as highly respected as the CELTA program nor will open as many teaching opportunities.

As you research online and learn about the exciting opportunities that await you, you’re probably feeling a little nervous. You’re ready to go out in the world and teach, but you’re not quite sure what to expect. Maybe you’re questioning if you have what it takes to do your job well.

Let us put your mind at ease. Here is what the CELTA course will do for you:

  • Provide you with the ability to take on teaching challenges with confidence
  • Train you with the skills and knowledge of TESOL fundamentals
  • Give you the hands-on experience of working with real language learners so you leave the course with teaching experience not just TESOL theory.
  • Help you find the best employment opportunities with competitive pay and benefits

When you finish your CELTA course, you won’t just have a prestigious certificate to show for it (though you most definitely will have a prestigious certificate). You’ll have the confidence and the experience to handle any classroom situation and you’ll have the tools to continue developing your skills. Whether you go on to teach business professionals, undergrads, adults or children, you will earn the respect of your students through your abilities as a teacher.

And the most rewarding part of the CELTA course is knowing that all the hard work you put into the most respected and rigorous TESOL course in the world has resulted in smiling students who are motivated and inspired to work hard in your lessons, in positive feedback from your school director and having the confidence to walk into any classroom in any country and teach a great lesson.

No application fee:

There is no fee to apply for the Teaching House CELTA, and applicants are in no way committed to taking the course after submitting an application.

CELTA Trainees can choose to buy a methodology book and grammar book, but these are not required (information on these books will be provided during the application process). This is completely optional, and we have copies of these books available at all of our face-to-face centers.
