Reasons to choose CELT-S:

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-S and TKT: Module 1.

Secondary school teachers can develop their classroom skills and teaching confidence with CELT-S. It’s a practical English teaching qualification that gives teachers the relevant skills to get the best from 11–18 year old learners.

The course helps teachers to create strategies for the key challenges of teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) in a secondary school context, such as classroom management with large classes and motivating learners.

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

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