CELTA Courses - How to Apply

Entry requirements:

Two A-Levels or equivalent “high school” qualifications that would allow you to enter University.

You must be aged 18 or over at the start of the course.

If English is not your native language we normally expect Cambridge CPE or IELTS 8.5.

Application Process:

1) Please complete our CELTA application form including the pre-interview task and send it to us. Please note the application must be handwritten so we can check your handwriting!

2) We’ll then look at the pre-interview task to check your language awareness. If it meets our requirements, we will invite you for an interview. This can be done by telephone or Skype if you are not able to come to the school.

3) If the interview is successful, we will offer you a place on the programme.

Enrolment process and conditions:

If, after the interview, you are accepted on the course, you’ll need to pay a deposit of £200 to secure your place and sign our terms and conditions. We ask you to pay this within seven days of receiving the offer letter in order to help us organise the courses.

On receipt of the deposit we will send you a comprehensive self-study task and reading list to help you prepare further.

The full balance of fees should be paid no later than three weeks before the course begins. Failure to make payments by the due time may result in the place being given to another applicant.

No refunds are made under any circumstances unless a replacement trainee is found. Similarly no refunds can be given in any case of late arrival, early departure, withdrawal after course commencement, illness or other mishap.

If LTC has to cancel a CELTA course for any reason a full refund will be given, less any bank charges your bank may deduct.
