CELTA Course - Tripoli, Libya

Cambridge ESOL Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA)

The British Council is delighted to announce the running of a Cambridge ESOL Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) teacher training course in 2010.
The course runs from Sunday 21st February to Monday 22nd March with a two-day break on the 2nd & 3rd of March.
The 120-hour-course includes the following: input sessions, supervised lesson planning, and teaching practice with extensive feedback, tutorials, peer observation and the observation of experienced teachers.
The input is given in the form of workshops designed to be as "hands on" and practical as possible.
Further information on the course is available from the Cambridge website at

Eligibility for the course

  • To be eligible for the course, you should have native speaker or near native speaker-like ability in English. For anyone assessed using CEF levels, this means a good C1 level. The course is extremely difficult, and not suitable for anyone who does not have this level of English. The demands of the course in teaching, language analysis, and discussion and in assignment preparation are extremely high.
  • You should be aged 20 or over with a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry into higher education.
  • Teaching experience is not essential but is an advantage.
  • You should be aware that the course is full time and will require 100% focus for the duration.


The cost of the course is 3080 Libyan Dinars. This will include all course fees, materials and certification from Cambridge.

Open Evening

On Thursday 14th January, the British Council Tripoli is hosting a CELTA Open Evening. This is a chance for potential candidates to come and see a presentation about the CELTA and to meet people who took the course recently. . If you think the course is suitable for you, you can then ask for an application form. The evening will run from 7-9 pm with a buffet. The event is free, but limited to the first 50 people who reply. If you want to attend, please contact by 10th January. You will be contacted after this date to confirm whether you have a ticket for the open evening.

Application procedure

After 10th January you can apply to for an application form, or visit us for a hard copy. This will need to be completed and returned to us by 21st January. Successful candidates will then be called for an interview. We expect interviews to take place between 25th and 31st January with successful candidates being notified within 2 working days. There are only 10 places available on the course but should demand from suitably qualified candidates exceed supply then we will certainly consider running another course in late 2010.
