Why CELTA with The London School of English?
The LSE group's association with Cambridge University examinations dates back to 1996 when along with the British Council we initiated the process that led to the country's inaugural FCE & CAE exam session.

In 2002 we were Ukraine's first accredited CELTA centre pioneering a qualification that has since grown both in esteem and acceptance throughout the entire country.

2014 saw the opening of not only Odessa's first permanent CELTA centre but also the region's only Cambridge examination centre based here in our language school; the city's largest.
