The CELTA course is a practical introduction to TEFL.

It aims to provide you with the knowledge, experience and confidence to start work as a TEFL teacher.

Taking the CELTA course will help you to

  • understand the principles and practice of effective teaching
  • acquire a range of practical skills for teaching English to adults
  • learn about the different roles of learners and teachers
  • understand why adults learn English
  • identify resources for teaching, testing and reference purposes
  • identify professional development opportunities

The course comprises instruction, teaching practice and reflection and contains the following components:

  • input sessions on language awareness, student awareness, classroom management and lesson planning
  • small group teaching practice with students at different language levels
  • detailed feedback and discussion sessions with tutors
  • observation of qualified teachers and your peers

The main topics you will cover in the CELTA course are:

  • learners and teachers, and the teaching and learning context
  • language analysis and awareness
  • language skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing
  • planning and resources for different contexts
  • developing teaching skills and professionalism

To receive a CELTA certificate you will need to complete the course and meet the assessment criteria for all written and practical assignments. You will be assessed on 6 hours of teaching practice and 4 written assignments. There are three passing grades: Pass A, Pass B and Pass.

Throughout the CELTA you will need to spend a substantial amount of time on lesson preparation and written assignments outside of timetabled hours.
