What is CELTA?

The University of Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults has long been recognised as a first-class introduction to the English teaching profession. It assumes no previous experience of teaching and is ideal for those who want to teach English in language schools in the UK or abroad. Language Link has run teacher training courses for over 20 years, and has run the CELTA since its creation in 2001, turning out hundreds of graduates who have gone on to teach all over the world. Our experienced teaching team has also trained many qualified teachers as CELTA trainers themselves.

The qualification gives you:

  • An initial qualification as an English Language Teacher which is recognised by the British Council and international teaching organisations.
  • Knowledge of the English language, its grammar, phonology and lexis
  • Up-to-date methodology of language teaching to adults (i.e. age 16+)
