At ELTA, English Language and Training for Adults, in Dublin, Ireland, trading as ELTA, The School of Spoken English, we are expert providers of spoken English training. We are also a leading provider of teacher training for non-native speakers of English. ELTA was founded in 2004 and was accredited by the Department of Education in 2007. Our spoken English programme is delivered via the Callan Method and we are the first and only Callan Method school in Ireland to have been accredited by the Department of Education of the Government of Ireland, which was the accrediting body in 2007 and remained so until 2012. Since 2012 , the inspection and accreditation of English language schools in Ireland has been carried out by QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland), ‘an independent State agency responsible for promoting quality and accountability in education and training services in Ireland’ (from www.qqi.ie) who continued to accredit ELTA. When the Callan Method Organisation introduced its own accreditation scheme in 2013, ELTA was the first school in Ireland to be accredited by them.
