CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) is an initial qualification for people with little or no previous teaching experience and is one of the most widely taken qualifications of its kind. It is recognised around the world and is a requirement for any teachers looking to work with quality language teaching institutions such as the British Council.
CELTA is awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment, part of the world-famous University of Cambridge, and the British Council Centre in Bahrain is currently the only centre in Bahrain accredited by the University of Cambridge to deliver it.
