CELTA Applications

Applying for the Cambridge CELTA

Before applying…

Please ensure that you have read the official (and unofficial) Entry Requirements and that you fully understand the selection procedure set out below. On reading the latter, you may be surprised at the need for the rather lengthy selection process, especially given the relatively few official entry requirements.

One aim of the process is to assess each candidate’s ‘language awareness’ and ‘potential’ (see entry requirements); we wish to point out that although neither teaching experience nor previous advanced study of the English language is required, we will attempt to assess your ability to consult a grammar book / teaching resource in order to analyse a piece of language.

A second reason is that the process should afford you enough time to really consider whether the Cambridge CELTA is the course for you, and to allow time for you to ask questions of us.

There are 3 easy steps to a place on the IH CELTA 100% Online, or in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Koh Samui, or Chengdu (China).

Step 1:

Step 2:

Send your completed CELTA Application Form back to us at celta@ihbangkok.com. Once we receive your application and check to make sure it is complete, we will send you a list of times for you to choose from in order to set up an interview with one of our trainers.

Step 3: 

Choose an interview time that works for you and successfully complete the interview process with one of our CELTA trainers.

Remember the interview is for you to:

  • Make sure you understand the content and workload of the course.
  • Highlight your strengths and weaknesses and how best to prepare.
  • Clear up any queries about the course, centre or any practical issues.

If you have any questions or difficulties, please email us at celta@ihbangkok.com.
