The Cambridge CELTA is an introductory teacher training course designed for candidates with little or no previous English language TEFL teaching experience, enabling them to get the skills, knowledge and hands-on teaching practice needed to be a successful English language teacher. It is also suitable for teachers who have teaching experience but have had little or no formal teacher training. International House Newcastle is one of the few CELTA centres in North East England.

As CELTA is awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment, part of the University of Cambridge, it is internationally recognised, highly respected and considered a benchmark for a solid foundation for teaching English as a foreign language. The CELTA teacher training course is recognised by EFL organisations worldwide and the certificate is the most highly respected of its kind in the world.

Whether you are fresh off the CELTA, or need some new ideas and inspiration, this one week intensive teacher training course aims to provide you with the skills, resources and methodology for teaching young learners (YLs) and teenagers.

There are 10 sessions of 2 hours each as well as 5 hours of consolidation project work, which can be completed in the format of your choice and focus on your particular needs and interests.

The sessions are presented by way of loop input, demonstrating ideas and activities that can be taken straight into a classroom and covering content that will provide you with sustainable teaching skills.

At the end of the course you will receive a certificate of attendance, and a graded written report issued by International House Newcastle.

The DELTA is designed for teachers with a minimum of 2 years' experience who want to progress their careers and apply for senior positions in the English language teaching profession.

If you have substantial experience in teaching English to speakers of other languages, and are ready to progress in your career, you need the Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults (DELTA). The qualification is ideal if you wish to extend your professional experience and accept new responsibilities as it not only demonstrates a commitment to the profession, but is also proof of your ability. You may be looking for an opportunity to increase your understanding of the principles and practice of English language teaching to help improve your overall performance in the classroom. As part of this process, DELTA courses encourage you to analyse your existing practices and beliefs. They also help you to apply the results of your learning and reflection both to your current professional life and to contexts beyond your present and previous teaching experience.

With a blend of one-to-one classes, a personalised methodology programme, observation and feedback, this is an excellent way to improve your teaching techniques the IH way!

Courses for individual teachers starting any Monday
- 10 hours each week the teacher will participate in English language classes
- 3 hours of loop input awareness raising
