The Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) is an initial qualification for people with little or no previous English teaching experience and is awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment, part the University of Cambridge. You may be considering a career in English Language teaching and view CELTA as an entry into a good teaching position in another country, or you may want a qualification that provides a sound basis in the fundamentals of language teaching practice and gives you the confidence to take control in the classroom.
