The course was quite challenging and energy-consuming, but also rewarding and, for me personally, life-changing. I had wanted to take the CELTA for such a long time, and was exhilarated to be given this opportunity. CELTA improved my teaching in terms of showing me how not to teach, and training me to become more student oriented. I am so grateful to our professional and devoted CELTA trainers for their support on our CELTA journey. I will wholeheartedly recommend the course to all of my colleagues.
Sonja Đukić, November 2020 CELTA Online course
The course was a fantastic experience. I started with limited experience as a one-on-one tutor and end the course with a confidence about teaching I didn’t imagine I would have.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone in my life who was serious about teaching English. The more of yourself you can give the more you can get from this course, and I feel like I got a lot. Thank you very much.
Nikola Žegarac, November 2020 CELTA Online course
I went through a full-time, 100% online, 5 week CELTA course at IH Belgrade, Serbia.
The CELTA instructors at IH Belgrade not only knew what they were doing but did their best to help the trainees. Thanks to their experience and support I passed the CELTA.
Needless to say, I’m very pleased with my experience at IH Belgrade and may well return for a DELTA next time.

The CELTA is an intensive TEFL qualification designed for people with little or no previous English language teaching experience or training. It is highly regarded and recognised internationally and can lead to a thoroughly rewarding and life enhancing experience through helping students achieve a vital language skill for their own life goals.
Why should I do the CELTA?
There are many choices when it comes to TEFL qualifications. They range in price and course content, whether they are delivered online or in person, and whether they are certified by an official body. The CELTA is an established qualification, recognised globally and highly regarded across the TEFL industry (not only in International House schools). It will equip you with the essential requirements needed to land your first TEFL job and offers opportunities to develop your skills later if you choose to advance your teaching career.
Taking the CELTA with International House also means you can benefit from all the support and materials that we offer to our students. This extends to our alumni community too when they become teachers. We host a Wellbeing Season in March, with workshops focusing on tips and advice on the mental wellbeing of teachers, and a Teachers Online Conference in May, with a series of sessions on anything teaching-related, including young learners, classroom games and technology.
Is the CELTA officially certified?
Yes, the CELTA is certified by Cambridge Assessment English and as a result is highly regarded internationally and recognised by Ofqual at level 5 on the Qualifications and Credit Framework.
Now approximately 4,000 teachers take a CELTA with IH every year. And it is recognised on all continents.
If I take the CELTA, can I get a job with International House?
Absolutely. IHWO Jobs board is updated on a regular basis with career opportunities from around the International House network, from EFL teachers to academic managers. Once you have gained your CELTA qualification, you can get started with TEFL!
I’ve done the CELTA… what’s next?
International House offers opportunities to further your knowledge and experience, whether that’s by taking the DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages) for experienced language teachers, or by specialising by taking an online course through the IH Online Teacher Training Institute. You can specialise in teaching Young Learners and Teenagers, teaching one-to-one, or in Business English. You can improve your theoretical knowledge of teaching by taking the IH Certificate in Advanced Methodology. You could eventually become an academic manager. Some certificates are also offered in our schools.
But you can also choose to take your teaching skills and transfer them over to another sector or career path, such as writing and developing course materials, marketing, teacher training, academic management, or something completely different!
First good news is that you will have a teaching qualification which is ranked as number one by employers worldwide.
Also, we will prepare you for your teaching life after CELTA as we have excellent professional development and career advice sessions during the course and will send you updated information on international job prospects.
You can always rely on us to give you a reference which is essential when looking for a teaching position.
Although CELTA qualification means that you can teach adults, in nearly all countries and schools it is a requirement for teaching all age groups, including young learners.
You will also get information on all conferences, workshops and webinars you can attend to continue with your professional development.
We will give you advice on other training courses you might like to attend in order to specialise or work as a Director of Studies.
You will become a member of our CELTA teachers group and will be able to exchange experience with our great CELTA teachers worldwide.
