CELTA is the English Language Qualification for Employers
Around 70% of job adverts for English Language Teachers require the CELTA qualification. This is one of the key findings from a recent survey by Cambridge English into English Language teaching jobs. All UK language schools accredited by ISI, Trinity or British Council require CELTA or Trinity Cert as a minimum teaching qualification.
The survey looked at 500 English language teaching (TEFL) job adverts posted across 23 international industry employment websites , with the objective of gaining an insight into employers expectations globally and the level and variety of usage of English language teaching qualifications.
The survey data showed 91% of adverts in the UK asked for a CELTA (157 out of 173 adverts). Many of the advertised job titles included CELTA e.g. CELTA English Teacher or CELTA/TESOL Teacher.
Tim Banks, Global Manager Teacher Development for Cambridge English said; "This survey proves that employers value the CELTA qualification and have confidence in the quality of training it gives English language teachers. Students tell us that they choose CELTA because it is so well recognised around the world and it will help them get a job. I'm very pleased that this survey shows they are right."
CELTA is an English language teaching qualification produced by Cambridge English, recognised by employers accross the globe. Each course provides the knowledge, skills and hands-on teaching experience employers value in a new teacher.
