Cambridge CELTA Course

The Cambridge CELTA course prepares you to start teaching English to adults anywhere in the world. This is the ‘gold-standard’ initial teacher training qualification for working in good quality language schools.

If you want to work in English Language Teaching either in Britain or abroad, the Cambridge ESOL CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) is one of the most widely recognized ELT (TEFL) qualifications in the world and the most well established. It is, for example, the minimum standard for teaching in British Council schools around the world and the JET programme in Japan.

LTC Brighton has been a centre for the CELTA programme for over 20 years. We currently offer the programme on a 4 week, full-time basis 6 times per year.

With a pass rate of 100% for students completing the course over a number of years the programme has a very good reputation locally and we have trained well over 1000 people to teach English.

The course is designed for native and non-native speakers of English with little or no experience of ELT and is an extremely practical introduction to the theory and methodology of English Language Teaching. We also offer advice on everything from initial funding for the course to how to find a job once you have qualified.
