What is the relationship between CELTA and the 'RSA' and 'TEFL' certificates?

Cambridge ESOL is a division of The University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES). UCLES took over the RSA certificates and diplomas for teachers in 1988. Some people still refer to the 'RSA certificate' but they mean CELTA, which is now one of the Cambridge ESOL Language Awards. (Cambridge ESOL Teaching Awards is the English language teacher-training unit at UCLES).

'TEFL' is a general term that is sometimes used to refer to qualifications for English language teachers; CELTA is by far the best-known and most widely taken initial qualification of its kind.

Quality and fairness

Cambridge ESOL places great importance on the quality of all its examinations and assessment services. To help ensure that all CELTA courses are run to the same standard

  • All CELTA centres are approved by Cambridge ESOL;
  • All courses are moderated by an external assessor;
  • Cambridge ESOL holds regular standardization meetings for centres and assessors.

CELTA courses are run in accordance with an equal opportunities policy to ensure that they are accessible to all candidates who meet the entry requirements.
