University of Cambridge CELTA Courses

The CELTA (University of Cambridge TEFL) course is the most widely recognized English language teaching qualification worldwide, and International House Dublin is the longest running CELTA centre in Dublin! We offer both full and part-time courses, all of which are externally assessed by a University of Cambridge ESOL moderator, thus ensuring that all of our candidates receive the best standard possible for your teacher training programme.

The CELTA course is aimed at a range of candidates including:

  • Candidates entirely new to teaching.
  • Candidates who have taught languages, but with little or no previous training
  • Candidates who have taught other subjects and wish to take up language teaching.
  • Candidates who have received previous training in language teaching, but feel the need for a refresher course, for a more practical qualification, or for a more internationally recognized qualification.
