This groundbreaking course was first advertised in The Spectator in October 1962, and rapidly set the standard for teacher qualfication in ELT, with thousands of teachers worldwide becoming IH-trained.From 1977 to 1988 the certificate was administered by the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) and became widely known as the "RSA". In 1988 the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES) took over responsibility for the administration of the certificate and it was renamed the Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language to Adults (CTEFLA).In 1996 it was updated and re-named the CELTA. The original IH Certificate - now much updated - is still run at IH schools around the world and is content-equivalent to its sister qualification, the CELTA.International House Dubai will find general English for adults courses business English classes offical exam preparation courses KET PET BEC IELTS.
