CELTA – Teacher Training


The CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is recognised all over the world, and it is the entry-level qualification most requested by employers. Whether you are a new teacher with no experience starting out on their career or a teacher who wants to further develop their skills and gain a recognised qualification, this is the ideal course for you.

It is only 4 weeks long but it will prepare you really well for the classroom by introducing you to the principles of effective language teaching, and by giving you a range of teaching techniques and opportunities for practical experience. It will equip you with the skills and confidence you need in the classroom during the course and beyond.

International House Torquay will provide you with the ideal setting to take the course. It is a busy language school, giving you the opportunity to see qualified teachers in action, and the tutors on the course are all very experienced CELTA trainers who have been delivering successful courses together for many years. We also run a Language Awareness course for those trainees who feel they need a little extra help before they start the CELTA. For those travelling to do the course, affordable accommodation can be arranged close to the school.
