Teaching House Oxford — Offering the premier CELTA certification in the city.


“And that sweet city with her dreaming spires, She needs not June for beauty's heightening, Lovely all times she lies, lovely to-night!” – Matthew Arnold

Have you been contemplating studying Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) in Oxford? Teaching House is proud to offer CELTA (Certificate in English Language Training) — the world’s most renowned English teaching qualification — out of its magnificent Oxford grounds. 

The ideal place to study for an Oxford TEFL certification

Teaching House Oxford is ideally situated in a magnificent heritage building in leafy North Oxford. The city centre is just a 10-minute walk away, with all of its world-famous attractions, including the Radcliffe Camera, the Bodleian Library, the Sheldonian Theatre, Christ Church College and the historic Covered Market, just to name but a few.


The college was established in 1979 and provides a wide range of English language and teacher training courses. Our students come from all over the world, with over 70 nationalities represented at the College in a typical year. Our English language courses are accredited by the British Council, and we are a member of English UK.

Our facilities include a well-equipped library, Wi-Fi access and a garden cafe/restaurant. All trainees also have complete access to computers, printing and photocopying facilities.


Become CELTA qualified and live out your life adventure


If you’ve made the decision to teach and travel abroad, adventure awaits you. Before you pack your bags and live out your dream, you first need to decide which TESOL training you’re going to pursue. Inevitably, your research has led you to the CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults).


From the University of Cambridge, CELTA is one of the most widely distinguished TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) courses globally, and this qualification is very highly regarded by employers. CELTA will give you a solid teaching foundation to help you move forward and excel in your career as an English language teacher.


CELTA training helps you:

  • Gain more skills and confidence to teach
  • Get hours of real teaching practise – and practical experience
  • Receive helpful, constructive feedback from peers and tutors‍

Our Oxford TEFL CELTA course will empower you to:

  • Present your teaching materials in an easily understood way
  • Encourage a fun, engaging and interactive classroom experience for your students
  • Analyse and reflect on your teaching methods
  • Prepare for lessons in a structured and principles-led manner
  • Manage your classroom and engage your students
  • Be the best teacher you can be


Nothing quite prepares you for life as an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher like CELTA does. CELTA teaches you how to deal with unexpected classroom situations, foster engagement from shy students and develop your own personal approach to teaching. You’ll also be taught different methods for presenting language, along with techniques for creative and organised teaching, concept checking, lesson procedures, and whole class feedback.


If you’re ready to get started, the premier provider of the CELTA in Oxford, Teaching House, will help you get where you need to go.


Begin your teaching journey with TEFL in Oxford 

As a qualified English language teacher, you can enjoy a fulfilling, rewarding and successful career wherever you are. EFL teachers are sought after all across the world — and after studying TEFL in Oxford, who knows where you may land. 

Looking for other teaching options or want to study Oxford TEFL online? At Teaching House, we also offer CELTA as an online course, allowing you to learn in a place that’s convenient for you. Be sure to consider our TEFL Certification Course, too — a CELTA equivalent certificate developed in-house by Teaching House to provide an even better course experience.
