Cambridge English Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) - Part-time

General Students05

Course outline

The course is designed as an initial training course for those with little or no experience of teaching languages and those with experience who need a qualification to progress their career.

CELTA enables you to teach EFL (English as a Foreign Language)/ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) both in the UK and abroad.

The CELTA course is at Level 5 (intermediate) of the Framework of Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ) and Level 5 of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

We will help you develop: 

  • a deeper awareness of the English language’s grammatical systems 
  • familiarity with the principles and practice of effective teaching to adult learners of English
  • skills and techniques for teaching adults in the language classroom
  • familiarity with appropriate resources and materials for use with adult learners of English

We usually have two intakes per year with a September and a March start. We sometimes run an additional course subject to demand. Contact celta@ncn.ac.uk for details of the next intake.
