The Cambridge CELTA is the world's most recognised English language teaching qualification and is an essential first step in a career in TEFL. Successful participants will be able to use this qualification to teach in schools in Australia and overseas. Our four-week full-time and 10-week part-time initial teacher training courses lead to the award of the internationally recognised certificate.


The course is designed for individuals who are motivated and ready to learn from a variety of backgrounds. Teaching experience is not necessary, but a good command of both spoken and written English is essential to cope with the demands of the course. Participants must be open to new ideas and techniques while also being reflective and supportive. It is crucial that trainees are committed to functioning as a team.
