The Cer­tifi­cate in English Lan­guage Teach­ing to Adults (CELTA) is a qual­i­fi­ca­tion which opens doors around the world. The Cam­bridge ESOL qual­i­fi­ca­tion is seen as the stan­dard in English Lan­guage Teach­ing and the min­i­mum re­quire­ment for teach­ing jobs in pri­vate schools and uni­ver­si­ties through­out the world. The course at­tracts a wide range of peo­ple in­clud­ing re­cent univer­sity grad­u­ates, pri­mary and sec­ondary school teach­ers and peo­ple look­ing for a ca­reer change. One of our past grad­u­ates, Roshaan Hid­dle­ston re­ports, ‘‘I would highly rec­om­mend the CELTA course to any­one who wants to be an English as a Sec­ond Lan­guage Teacher. ‘‘I did the CELTA course at CCEL in 2008 and it fully pre­pared me to feel con­fi­dent in the class­room, whether it was stu­dents with be­gin­ner level English or ad­vanced. ‘‘I learnt about course books, how to use them and how to adapt them de­pend­ing on the level of my stu­dents. I even learnt things about the English lan­guage that I didn’t know my­self! ‘‘The tu­tors were very ex­pe­ri­enced, very will­ing to help and pro­vided use­ful feed­back and ad­vice that I still fol­low to this day. ‘‘I am now priv­i­leged to have th­ese tu­tors as my col­leagues as I cur­rently work at CCEL af­ter trav­el­ling and work­ing over­seas, in par­tic­u­lar the Mid­dle East. ‘‘Hav­ing the CELTA qual­i­fi­ca­tion meant that I could pick and choose from a num­ber of well­paid Teach­ing English jobs around the globe. ‘‘It’s been 5 years since I did my CELTA train­ing and I’m still very pas­sion­ate about teach­ing English and hope to travel and teach English in the near fu­ture.’’ See CCEL’s ad­vert for 2014 course dates. Par­tic­i­pants need to be a min­i­mum of 18 years of age and have a stan­dard of ed­u­ca­tion equiv­a­lent to that re­quired for en­try into higher ed­u­ca­tion.
