The Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) teaching award is an internationally recognised teaching qualification which follows a four-week curriculum designed by the University of Cambridge.
CELTA is considered to be an international benchmark English language teaching certification and the only qualification accepted by many language schools around the world.

CELTA candidates should be at least 20 years old and have a first degree or equivalent. The language entry level is an advanced level of English and candidates need to be able to display a fully accurate and fluent spoken and written model of language.
