TEFL around the world with CELTA

CELTA is an introductory course designed for people with little or no previous English language teaching experience or training. CELTA provides you with the opportunity to teach English as a second language all over the world.

The Cambridge ESOL CELTA is highly regarded internationally and has been accredited at level 5 on the National Qualifications Framework.

CELTA will give you the skills and confidence to teach English to adults whether you’re a recent graduate or looking for a career change.

Our IH TESOL Certificate is designed for non-native English speakers who want to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL). You must have a minimum English language level equivalent to C1 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
