Who is the course for?
The CELT-S course is for teachers currently working in secondary education with learners aged 11-19 who would like to refresh and build their knowledge and skills. The course leads to a recognised qualification from Cambridge English.
With CELT-S, teachers can show that they:
- have developed their understanding of, and ability to respond to, the specific needs of secondary 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
