Course details


CELTA is an international recognized teacher training course that will give you the qualification you need to teach English as a second language in English and non-English speaking countries. CELTA courses are run at Cambridge English Teaching Awards approved centres worldwide. Certificates are awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment. Course tutors are experienced English language teachers who have taught in a wide range of professional situations and are accredited CELTA trainers. All courses are externally moderated by Cambridge English, ensuring that standards are maintained. NZLC offers a unique 5-week course instead of the more commonly seen 4-week course. CELTA is suitable for native speakers of English, but is also open to non-native speakers who have native speaker competence in both spoken and written English. Applicants must fulfil the following requirements: be aged 18 +; be a native English speaker or have an equivalent level in English (C1+ to C2 or Advanced CAE ‘A’ or ‘B’ grade or IELTS 7.5); meet the academic Requirement (University Entrance (UE) or equivalent); have the potential to develop the necessary skills to become effective teachers and to complete successfully the written assignments and the assessment of practice teaching. Most English speaking countries and non-English speaking countries are very keen to employ Cambridge CELTA trained teachers. CELTA ensures that you have a globally recognised qualification that is accepted as a standard in most parts of the world. Additionally, because of the shortage of teachers with the CELTA, you will be able to be far more selective about where you choose to work and to command better terms and conditions. The CELTA qualification also gives you access to a range of further study options as your career develops – after a few years of practice you can take the Cambridge Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (Delta). This course will help you move into academic management, teacher training or materials development, for example.
