The Language Centre
Teach English anywhere in the world
The Language Centre at Saint Mary's University offers a suite of internationally-recognised Cambridge teacher training courses including the Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), Language for Teaching, and the Certificate in EMI (English as a Medium of Instruction). CELT-P (primary) and CELT-S (secondary) courses will be available soon.
The Cambridge CELTA course is the essential TEFL/TESL qualification that is trusted by employers, language schools and governments around the world. The CELTA gives you the knowledge, hands-on teaching experience and classroom confidence to qualify as a teacher of English as a Second Language (ESL).
CELTA is great for recent graduates, people who are changing career, or teachers who want to gain a formal qualification and may want to progress to qualifications such as Delta. To apply for the CELTA click here.
The Certificate in EMI Skills is for university professors, lecturers, tutors and researchers whose first language is not English, but who use English to teach students, present academic papers and interact with colleagues.
Language for Teaching
The Language for Teaching courses are ideal if you are a teacher working in primary or secondary education, with learners 6-18 years. The course helps you with your general English and English for the classroom, giving you the language you need to teach with confidence.
This course is designed for English language teachers currently working in primary education (6-12 years old) to improve their teaching skills and classroom performance and leads to a recognised qualification from Cambridge English.
The Cambridge CELT-S is designed for English language teachers currently working in secondary school education and teaching 11-18 year olds. It will help teachers improve their teaching skills and classroom performance and leads to a recognised qualification from Cambridge English.
All tutors are Cambridge-approved teacher trainers. This means that in addition to holding the highest level of English language teaching qualifications, they have also undergone extensive training to become a trainer.
