Certificate in English Language Teaching (CELTA)

Canterbury Christ Church University · Faculty of Arts and Humanities

Entry requirements

Candidates should normally have, as a minimum entry requirement, a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry into higher education. For non-native speakers of English, applicants should demonstrate a high level of both written and spoken English such as an IELTS score of 6.5 or level C2 on the CEFR.

Many candidates who come on courses have experience of teaching or training in other or related fields and some have a little, usually informal, experience of teaching foreign students. The certificate should enable you to find employment in private language schools and some state institutions either in the UK or overseas.
