If you’re looking to start a career as an English teacher, getting your CELTA qualification with the British Council could be the ideal starting place.
CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) is an initial qualification for people with little or no previous teaching experience and is one of the most widely taken qualifications of its kind. It is recognised around the world and is a requirement for any teachers looking to work with quality language teaching institutions such as the British Council.
CELTA is awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment, part of the world-famous University of Cambridge.
WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE THIS COURSE FROM THE BRITISH COUNCIL?
