The University of Cambridge CELTA course is the most recognised introductory teacher training qualification both in Ireland and internationally. The course is aimed at those with varying levels of experience ranging from little or no experience to those who wish to do a refresher course.
The CELTA certificate entitles the bearer to teach the English language to non-native speakers both in Ireland and abroad. It ensures that you are provided with an insight into the professional life of a functioning school and brings you into direct contact with overseas learners. Please see www.cambridgeenglish.org for further information. This certificate is now the benchmark qualification for employment in the quality EFL sector in Ireland and abroad. CES has delivered teacher training courses since 2004. During this time, CES has successfully trained more than 1000 teachers and as a result has a reputation for an outstanding level of teacher training.
Each course is moderated by a Cambridge English approved external assessor to ensure the highest possible standards are maintained.
