It’s designed to enhance their theoretical knowledge and insights into teaching and learning, and it aims at helping teachers improve their own practice, develop self-analytical skills, and prepare for higher-level qualifications such as the Cambridge DELTA.

Yes. The course is developed by the International House World Organisation and moderated by Cambridge Assessment English, part of the University of Cambridge. Certificates include the Cambridge logo, adding value and international recognition to the qualification.

IH CAM (International House Certificate in Advanced Methodology), Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Speakers of Other Languages) and Cambridge DELTA (Diploma in English Language Teaching to Speakers of Other Languages) are all internationally recognized qualifications for English language teachers. The IH CAM is developed by the International House World Organisation, one of the most reputable English language teaching institutions in the world, whereas CELTA and DELTA are developed by Cambridge English, part of the University of Cambridge. All courses are moderated by Cambridge English. They differ in terms of their focus and level.

 

The IH CAM is an advanced professional development course that focuses on theoretical knowledge, improve practical teaching ability and self-analytical skills. It is suitable for experienced teachers wanting to increase their professional competence and get ready for higher-level training courses, like the Cambridge DELTA. The course seeks to link theory and practice via action research and reflection on your real classes. Entry requirements include having at least 1 year of teaching experience post CELTA or 2 years of teaching experience after other TELF initial teacher training programmes, being a practicing teacher and having access to a general English class of adult learners and having a minimal level of language proficiency equivalent to CEFR C1 (if English is not your first language).

 

CELTA is a practical teacher training course that focuses on the development of teaching skills and techniques. It is suitable for individuals with little or no teaching experience. It’s mainly focused on teaching practice. Entry requirements include being over 18, having a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry into higher education (you do not need a degree) and having a minimal level of language proficiency equivalent to CEFR C1 (if English is not your first language).

 

DELTA is an advanced level qualification that focuses on the development of teaching expertise. It is suitable for experienced teachers who want to improve their teaching skills, knowledge and understanding of the field. It’s focused on both theory and practice. Entry requirements include being over 18, having a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry into higher education (you do not need a degree), having at least 1 year’s teaching experience and having a minimal level of language proficiency equivalent to CEFR C1 (if English is not your first language).

 

Overall, CELTA is an initial teacher training course, IH CAM is more advanced, and DELTA is the most advanced.

The IH CAM is a professional development qualification for experienced English language teachers. It is designed for individuals who have already completed a TEFL qualification, such as the Cambridge CELTA, and have at least 1 or 2 years of teaching experience. It is the ideal course if you want to expand your theoretical knowledge and skill base with a more advanced programme but don’t feel ready yet for higher-level courses like the Cambridge DELTA.

Yes. You should have at least 1 year of teaching experience if you are CELTA-qualified or have at least 2 years of teaching experience if you received any other TELF teacher training.

No. You should only have a proficient level of English, equivalent to CEFR C1 or above if English is not your first language.

Yes. You should be currently teaching a general English class of adult learners. Your reflective tasks and assignment will be based on these learners.

No. You don't need to be an expert as long as you know how to use familiar computer applications for video calls (e.g. Skype, Zoom, etc.), office work (e.g. Word, Power Point, etc.) and file sharing (e.g. iCloud, Google Drive, etc.). Some training is provided and your tutors are always there to support you. In terms of equipment, you only need a computer, a microphone, a webcam and a stable internet connection.

There’s no difference except for the mode of studying. This is because the syllabus is exactly the same. Of course, if you take the TKT preparation course online you attend classes on Zoom. From wherever you are!

Only the intensity! Both options follow the same syllabus and assessment, just at a different pace. The full-time option lasts 1 week (from Monday to Friday) and it’s ideal if you have the time to drop everything and fully focus on your course. The part-time option lasts 4 weeks (on Saturdays) and it’s convenient if you have to manage multiple commitments at home, work or school. Both courses will require you to work independently for an additional 4 weeks after the course before submitting your portfolio for assessment.

The IH CAM course covers a range of topics which give you a deeper understanding of theories of language learning, language learners, language skills and systems. Sessions include input related to:

 

- second language acquisition and approaches to teaching
- lesson frameworks, planning and materials
- language systems (grammar, vocabulary, phonology and discourse)
- receptive (listening and reading) and productive skills (speaking and writing)
- learner errors
- testing

 

The assessment is based on your attendance and contribution to the course, and a portfolio comprising of homework tasks and a final reflective assignment of 1,500-2000 words based on your real classes. The portfolio is moderated by the IH Assessment Unit and the grading of the course is Pass or Fail.

Quite busy! Whether you study full-time or part-time, a day on the course usually includes a series of sessions on theory and practice, and trainer input on how to conduct research for your portfolio.

It's very simple! Choose your preferred course and send your application through our website. No payment is required at this stage. After we receive it, we will arrange a selection interview. You will attend an online interview with an IH CAM trainer who will review your application and ask you about your motivation for wanting to take the course. This is to ensure that the course is a suitable match with your needs and wants. If you are accepted, you can start the course!
