The Training Center The Wellington CELTA Teacher Training Center is the only centre in Wellington delivering this prestigious course. Situated in the heart of Wellington's Central Business District, its facilities include classrooms, lecture rooms, student common rooms, kitchen and a computer suite. The Wellington Training Center continues its legacy by providing the most supportive and prestigious environment in Wellington for studying English language and training English teachers. This is achieved by setting the highest possible academic standards, and creating an environment where each student/trainee feels like they are part of a large international family. The 3 directors of the Training Center are all teachers themselves, with more than 70 years of teaching experience between them. CELTA Course Information The CELTA course (The Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) is a practical, hands-on teaching qualification. It is administered by Cambridge University ESOL and is the minimum teaching qualification for many language schools worldwide. The CELTA course provides candidates with a mix of hands-on teaching experience, teaching methodology and practical classroom techniques. It is an initial teaching qualification, so no previous teaching experience is required to undertake the course. CELTA is also popular with teachers who have some initial experience in NZ or overseas, but lack a formal teaching qualification. CELTA is a standardised course, which means you can take the course anywhere in the world and be assessed by the same criteria and cover the same syllabus. This is an important safeguard for both you as a candidate and also for employers, as a pass on the CELTA course is recognised throughout the world and continues to stand for quality and innovation in language teaching.
