IH London

London, UK

We are currently running CELTAs fully online - you'll be in a virutal classroom with your classmates in real time - it's not like taking a self study online programme. You'll even have online teaching practice - developing really useful skills at the moment that are not usually on the CELTA! 

If you'd prefer to apply for a face to face course, we look forward to welcoming you to our fantastic school soon!

IH London opened in 1959. We are the no. 1 Language school in Central London, judged by the latest British Council inspections and reported in the EL Gazette (2019). Every year we, IH London, teach over 500 new teachers and enable them to embark on exciting new journeys across the globe to inspire and teach others

IH London was started by John and Brita Haycraft, and its classrooms saw the very first CELTA courses back in the 1060s. Since then we have moved premises a couple of times, and are now very centrally located in Covent Garden. 

The centre is now a charitable trust, and is most well-known for English language courses and teacher training. We have, from our beginnings, been a leading contributor in the ELT field and we strive to continue to make a significant contribution to the international language education community.
