CELTA, (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) formerly known as Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults, is an initial teacher training qualification (a certification for teachers) allowing you to teach English as a foreign language (ESL, EFL) in Dubai or abroad.
The CELTA certification course is KHDA approved in Dubai.
CELTA certification is one of the most widely accepted TEFL qualification for English language teachers, delivered by Authorised Centres on behalf of Cambridge Assessment English, one of the prestigious universities in the world. It is registered as a Level 5 Qualification with Ofqual. The course is designed for candidates with little or no previous teaching experience.
Employers in Dubai (and worldwide) are aware of the CELTA course content and know what to expect when hiring a CELTA certificate holder. Hence with a CELTA certification, you stand a better chance of getting a teaching job in any of the public and private schools in Dubai.
In the view of CoVID-19 situation, we are currently conducting Online CELTA course, which holds the same value and reputation as the face-to-face course at a discounted price.Check the dates and prices below..
