The University of Cambridge CELTA Course is the most widely recognised English language teaching qualification worldwide. Our school is the longest running CELTA Centre in Dublin and we offer both full time and part time CELTA Courses. Each CELTA course run at International House Dublin is externally moderated by a University of Cambridge ESOL Assessor. This guarantees that all of our candidates receive the best standard in course content, trainers and facilities.

The CELTA course is aimed at a range of people including:

>> First-time teachers

>> People who have taught languages, but with little or no previous training 

>> Teachers who wish to take up language teaching

>> People who have received previous training in language teaching but feel the need for a refresher course, for a more practical qualification

This is a wonderful opportunity to enhance your skills, and to have a qualification that allows you to travel with an internationally recognised qualification

Successful candidates will be able to join the International House Alumni network and take advantage of recruitment opportunities in the 160 International House centres, in over 50 countries worldwide. Visit to see where your CELTA could take you.


CELTA is the most widely-recognised EFL qualification worldwide.  In fact, 7 out of 10 employers worldwide ask for CELTA, according to a survey of 500 English language teaching job adverts posted across 23 international industry employment websites during April 2015.  CELTA is regulated by Ofqual at level 5 on the Qualifications and Credit Framework in the UK.  This is equivalent to level 6 on the National Framework of Qualifications for Ireland.  See for more details on equivalence.  IH Dublin is accredited by Accreditation and Co-ordination of English Language Services (ACELS), part of QQI.  We are also accredited by EAQUALS, a leading professional association for language education throughout the world and Marketing English in Ireland.
