About the course:

CELT–P: Certificate in English Language Teaching – Primary

CELT-S: Certificate in English Language Teaching – Secondary

It’s a practical English teaching qualification that gives teachers the relevant skills to get the best from learners. The practical component helps provide hands-on experience to the participants.

The course helps teachers to create strategies for the key challenges of teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) in a secondary school context, such as classroom management with large classes and motivating learners.

Teachers build on their teaching knowledge and skills, through a combination of online study and observed teaching practice with an approved trainer.

Who is this course for?

CELT P/S is an ideal course for people applying for a teaching job in non-native countries, especially places like Middle East and Turkey.

CELT S is especially helpful for teachers who want to teach English to O/A level classes or GCSE students. Those teaching English to early years at a university may also apply.

CELT P is useful for English language teachers for young learners.
