What is the Celta?

The Celta (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is the most widely recognised and respected initial teacher training course internationally. 

The certificate entitles one to teach English to non-native speakers both in the UK, Ireland and abroad. Throughout the course you will become familiar with teaching techniques and gain teaching experience with genuine language learners.

Please see www.cambridgeenglish.org for further information.

Who is Celta for?

  • Both English speakers and non-native English speakers with no teaching experience who are keen on travelling and teaching English.
  • Those with some teaching experience who want to upgrade their knowledge and certification.

Why do Celta?

By the end of the Celta course at CES, successful candidates should be able to do the following:

  • Plan clearly staged lessons which lead to the achievement of teaching objectives.
  • Effectively implement these lesson plans by teaching classes appropriate to the level and language needs of learners.
  • Analyse language for the purposes of teaching and understanding basic EFL terminology.

Components of the Celta course

Similar to all Celta courses around the world, one needs to do six hours of Teaching Practice at two levels of English. There are also four written assignments which need to be completed along with six hours of observation of trained and experienced teachers.

Full-time online CELTA course (5 weeks) 

Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm

This is a fully accredited 5-week fast-track online course which prepares candidates to teach in both a regular classroom as well as online. No previous experience is needed in using the Zoom platform as training is given as part of the course. 

Sessions are delivered by our tutors in an interactive and practical manner through Zoom. These sessions are designed to help candidates acquire and put into practice the knowledge and techniques which are needed when teaching in a regular classroom environment as well as in an online classroom.  Preparation time is timetabled in every day when our tutors give guidance on how to prepare for and plan lessons. Teaching Practice takes place through Zoom with these lessons occurring in the morning or afternoon.

Class feedback is done afterwards.  

Part-time online CELTA (10 weeks)

Our 10-week CELTA course is fully online using the official Cambridge platform and Zoom. Trainees complete work using the Cambridge platform for course material.  

The course demands approximately 20 hours of your time per week. Teaching Practice is carried out either at the weekends or evenings during the week depending on the centre.

Full-time face-to-face CELTA course (4 weeks)

Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm

This is the fastest way to gain your fully accredited CELTA qualification with CES. Choose to complete a 4-week face-to-face course on location in one of our three CELTA centres (Dublin, Edinburgh and Leeds).

Sessions are delivered each day by our experienced tutors focusing on teaching skills and theory before candidates have an opportunity to apply this in teaching practice. While this course is delivered in a face-to-face format, adaptations and considerations needed for online teaching are covered during input sessions.  Teaching Practice is held daily with each day ending with feedback with your tutor. 
  

As with all CELTA course formats, candidates must complete 6 hours of Teaching Practice, 6 hours of observations and 4 written assignments. 100% attendance is expected for input sessions and Teaching Practice.
