Are ALL CELTA courses run through Cambridge

Unread postby CELTASkelta » 25 May 2012, 19:18

Hello Friends! I have just gone through the ENTIRE Cambridge list of CELTA course sites without finding what I need.

Still I see other places listed in Cactus.

Are ALL real CELTA courses run through Cambridge or are there other licensors? If there are others, are there "good" and "bad" ones? I have not been able to find a shorter (less than 12 weeks) PT course in a place that I really want to go, via Cambridge, so I'm looking for other places to look. Are there any, for CELTA specifically. (I'm going to post separately but what about recommendations for a truly awesome TEFL cert?)

MANY thanks,

CELTA is the Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. The other obvious option would be the Trinity CertTESOL, but you are not going to find a part time course of less than 12 weeks anywhere. This is because part-time courses are for people still doing full time jobs and no one could manage, for example, a full time job and an 8 week CELTA as CELTA takes up every working hour of 4 weeks in the full time version.
