(Certificate in English Language Teaching – Primary)

Reasons to Choose CELT-P:

Ideal for teachers who speak English as a second language.

  • Flexible and convenient study options.

  • ‘Theory to practice’ assignments enable teachers to apply what they have learned to their own classes.

  • Teachers gain two Cambridge English certificates: CELT-P and TKT: Young Learners.

Primary school teachers can develop their classroom skills and teaching confidence with CELT-P. It’s a practical English teaching qualification that gives teachers the relevant skills to get the best from 6–12 year-old learners.

The course helps teachers to create strategies for the key challenges of teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL), such as developing learners’ listening and speaking abilities in large classes.

Teachers build on their teaching knowledge and skills, through a combination of online study and observed teaching practice with an approved trainer.

CELT-P is at Foundation to Developing stages on the Cambridge English Teaching Framework.
