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’s 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.
