The Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA), accredited by Cambridge English Language Assessment, is an introductory course in teaching English to adult learners for candidates with little or no previous English language teaching experience as well as those with experience but little previous training. The qualification is recognised at English teaching companies all around the world and is very often a pre-requisite to employment as an EFL teacher.
Completing the CELTA at the Apollo (Hanoi) is without doubt the best decision I made when selecting a training facility and location. – CELTA Student 2019
As CELTA is an introductory course to English teaching, you don’t need any other EFL/ESL qualifications to be accepted. You usually need to have a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry into higher education as well as a high advanced/proficiency level of English. If you decide to stay in Vietnam to teach, you will need to have a Bachelors degree in addition to the CELTA.
CELTA is an intensive course. Course hours are approximately 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday, but evenings and weekends should also be kept free for lesson planning and assignments.
