Teacher Training


The Cambridge Assessment Certificate in English Language Training to Adults (CELTA), is the most recognized initial English Language Teaching qualification in the world. The original course was designed by the founder of International House, John Haycraft, in London in 1962 and it has been constantly revised through the years as new methodologies and approaches have become popular, making the CELTA course the most innovative teacher training course. The CELTA preparation course is intended for a range of candidates, including primarily:

  • candidates who are entirely new to teaching;
  • candidates who have taught languages but with little or no previous training;
  • candidates who have taught other subjects and wish to take up language teaching.

The CELTA course may also be suitable for candidates who have received previous training in language teaching but feel the need for an up-dated course, for a more practical qualification, or for a more internationally recognised certificate.

Successful candidates will be able to avail of International House World Organization Recruitment Services, which interviews and places teachers in 60+ International House language centers worldwide.

Selection of Candidates

  • Applicants must be at least 18 years old - it is generally recommended that candidates should be aged 20 or over, but those aged between 18 and 20 may be accepted at our discretion.
  • Applicants must demonstrate that they have an appropriate level of education, experience and abilities that will enable them to take the course and subsequently take up language teaching. They should have, as a minimum entry requirement, a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry into higher education.
  • Only applicants who have a realistic chance of being successful on the course will be considered, although applicants must understand that acceptance onto a CELTA course is not a guarantee of successful completion of the course.
