CELTA is the original TEFL course and gives you training which leads to a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. CELTA is for people without experience or for teachers with no previous formal training. 


Getting a CELTA certificate will help you find your first teaching job. The course is highly regarded by employers who know that teachers who successfully complete the course have a sound knowledge of teaching English. If you have a CELTA,  it means you have been observed and assessed giving lessons to real students.


Courses have a minimum of 120 contact hours as well as homework tasks which include lesson playing, self-evaluations of your lessons and written assignments. If you pass the course, you will receive a Cambridge CELTA certificate and a detailed progress report. 
If you do CELTA at International House Madrid, you will get
•    a free online pre-CELTA preparation course
•    free IT training
•    access to our digital resource library
•    post-CELTA job assistance
•    discounts on Spanish classes and our in-service teacher training


Other courses and mini courses
