Who is the course for?
The CELT-P course is for teachers currently working in primary education with learners aged 6-12 who would like to refresh and build their knowledge and skills. The course leads to a recognised qualification from Cambridge English.
With CELT-P, teachers can show that they:
- have developed their understanding of, and ability to respond to, the specific needs of primary school learners
- have extended the range of approaches for developing their learners’ language skills
- have become more aware of ways to make effective use of resources to support learning in and beyond the classroom.
Why should I choose CELT-P?
- It is ideal for teachers who speak English as a second language.
- I can do the online tasks whenever I have time.
- ‘Theory to practice’ assignments help me to apply what I have learned to my own classes.
- I gain two Cambridge English certificates: CELT-P and TKT: Young Learners.
