Testimonials. CELTA, Perth, AustraliaThe CELTA course has prepared me to be a better teacher by breaking the tasks down into very definite areas, both in terms of lesson planning, language and knowledge. We had plenty of teaching practice and got very
thorough feedback.

I really enjoyed the classes we took with the lecturers. They were well planned, well paced, interactive and relevant, with plenty of opportunity to speak out as a student. I also found the CELTA trainers to be very knowledgeable, pleasant and organised. They were very supportive and energetic.

- Julie Durant - CELTA Course / Perth, Australia

CELTA Course Content and Assessment

The course consists of:

  • a minimum of 106 contact hours between participants and course tutors (This includes lectures, tutorial support, lesson planning, etc)
  • a minimum of 6 hours teaching practice supervised by a course tutor, feedback on teaching practice and peer observation)
  • a minimum of 8 hours directed observation of lessons taught by experienced teachers
  • In addition to the scheduled timetable, the course also requires a minimum of a further 50 hours for required reading, research and preparation of lessons and assignments.


Course assessment, which is continuous and integrated, is based on classroom teaching practice and on written assignments. The certificate is awarded to candidates who satisfy all assessment criteria and complete all course requirements.

An external assessor, who is appointed by Cambridge University, visits each course in order to observe practice teaching and to inspect candidates' portfolios of written work. Their role is to standardise grading, recommend final grades and monitor the courses. The University of Cambridge awards final grades and issues Certificates to successful candidates.

The full-time course is very intensive and requires total commitment. In addition to course hours you should allow between three to four hours each evening for lesson preparation and writing assignments and one weekend day would also be required. You should also be in good health and be able to manage the stress arising from an intensive course of this nature.

Employment with CELTA

The CELTA Certificate is the TEFL qualification with the highest recognition worldwide; it is also the preferred one by employers. Part of the CELTA course content is devoted to provide you with useful information about how, where and when to look for teaching work in Australia and all around the world.

After successful completion of the CELTA course, graduates can elect to receive emails about job opportunities in Australia and around the world from the Teacher Training department. There are numerous jobs that come through each day!

Bear in mind than in Australia, in order to teach English, you will be required a degree on top of your CELTA. If you don’t have a degree and want to teach English with your CELTA you will have to look for work opportunities outside Australia.
