Learn to teach English full-time, part-time, or online
Every year we train over 500 new teachers and they begin their exciting journey inspiring others and connecting people from all over the world.
The CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is a structured and practical introduction to teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL). Once you have completed the course, you will have the qualification, knowledge, practical experience and confidence to begin working as a teacher anywhere in the world.
Part-time CELTA: perfect for qualifying around other commitments, with evening and Saturday classes over 12 weeks
Blended CELTA: combine face-to-face learning with online studying at times that suit you over 13 weeks.
CELTA course dates
The interview process was great. They were very flexible with the time of the interview and it took about 40 minutes. The interviewer was very friendly and welcoming. I found out later on that day that I was accepted for the course.
