Since then, the ELTU has evolved into one of the largest departments of its kind in the UK. Today, as well as continuing to provide pre-sessional support to over 1,000 students every year, the ELTU’s scope has expanded to offering a wide range of services for a variety of organisations, including Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) teacher training, English for both specific and general purposes and English language teaching consultancy. The ELTU is: • Accredited by the British Council • An authorised centre for both Cambridge language examinations and CELTA courses • An active member of BALEAP (British Association of Lecturers in English for Academic Purposes).
