The CELT-S course is for teachers currently working in secondary education with learners aged 11-18 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.
Why should I choose CELT-S?
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-S and TKT: Module 1.
