We offer full-time intensive and part-time Cambridge CELTA courses. The top qualification in TEFL, the Cambridge CELTA will provide you with the skills, knowledge and resources you need to start your career in TEFL. It is a passport to work and travel all over the world. You will need a high level of commitment to succeed, and you will experience great personal and professional development.


The tutors have been fantastic throughout the course on so many levels. They have been wonderful demonstrators, teachers and guides.

Everyone who I had dealings with at the college: other teaching staffs, admin staff and learning centre staff have been so helpful and supportive.

This is the most enjoyable and challenging course that I've ever done. It also makes a big difference when you have teachers as good as the ones on this course. We were warned that the workload would be high, but it really was immense.

Please note: If you succesfully completed a level three course at LSC in 2017-18 and want to progress to an HE course then you don't need to complete a UCAS application. Use the 'Apply' button to apply direct to the College.
