This course was previously known as English Language and English Language Teaching.
This course will give you the skills and qualifications to meet the UK Government's teacher-training requirement, and work in further, adult and community education in England and Wales. Youâll have the opportunity to take the CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) qualification, accepted world-wide by employers of English language teachers.
Do you want to gain a deeper understanding of a bridge language for many cultures all over the world, and help others learn it too?
Many employers now require a high proficiency in English, meaning English language teachers are in more demand than ever, both in the UK and overseas.
This course will help you explore the nature and mechanics of the English language. Youâll be introduced to many issues in applied linguistics and language studies, like semantics, phonetics and phonology, and learn to apply them to a range of contexts.
You can choose to study the entire syllabus for the Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) - both methodology and teaching practice modules. In these components, which must be completed in one year, youâll take part in supervised lesson planning, observation and assessed teaching practice, with feedback from experienced CELTA tutors.
On our other modules, youâll follow the evolution of the English Language and its teaching through to the modern day, and learn to collect and analyse the 'real' language you hear in everyday life.
Youâll have the choice of investigating areas such as newspaper and advertising language, or political rhetoric, and youâll even get the chance to study a foreign language from beginner or elementary level.
Finally, your major project will allow you to research the topic of your choice under the supervision of an expert English language tutor.

Youâll demonstrate your progress through a combination of assessment, such as unseen examinations, in-class assessments, essays, portfolios, and assessed presentations. Most of our modules include a practical element, as well as other opportunities to show your learning, like non-assessed discussions and presentations, language laboratory work or class exercises.
If you take the CELTA component, your teaching practice assessment will be based on classroom-related written assignments and the continuous assessment of your lesson plans and teaching.
