If you are interested in teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) then a CELTA course can be a great way to start. Teaching English can be a highly rewarding career, offering you the chance to live and work abroad.
In order to be able to teach English to adult foreign language speakers you will need an internationally recognised teaching qualification and CELTA is one of the best.
A CELTA course is the initial stage of TEFL and is the most widely taken course of its kind in the world, with over 10,000 people successfully completing this course each year.
The course is aimed at people with little or no teaching experience, so it is a very good place to begin if you want to teach English to speakers of other languages.
CELTA will give you the best chance of getting a teaching job, as it is so well respected. The course is awarded by Cambridge ESOL, part of the world famous University of Cambridge, so you can rely on it being recognised around the globe.
The Cambridge CELTA has been accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) at level 4 on the National Qualifications Framework. Cambridge ESOL also works with international ELT organisations to ensure the acceptance of CELTA globally.
CELTA gives you the important basic principles of teaching, supplies you with practical skills for teaching English to adult learners and above all gives you teaching practice so that you will become familiar with a teaching environment.
Concorde International run CELTA trianing courses throughout the year. The next one begins on 13th April 2015 and is open for applications. All you need is a good standard of English, to be aged 20 or over and ideally have the equivalent to a university applicants standard of education.
