CELTA Online Blended Course

As a guide you should plan for a time commitment of 80 – 120 hours over the length of the course. This time is divided between lesson preparation, assignment completion and additional reading.

Online Units: 31 units. You should expect to spend on average 2 hours to complete each.

Assignments: 4 assignments of 750 – 1000 words each, timetabled throughout the course.

Teaching Practice (TP) Schedule

You will be required to attend the Academy for the Teaching Practice component of the course. During the TP program you will teach English language students for 6 hours, spread out over 8 lessons in the 12 days scheduled for TP in weeks 17 & 18 of the course, Monday to Saturday. You will also observe the lessons taught by others in their TP group and take part in lesson preparation and feedback.

The Cambridge CELTA Online Blended Course is an excellent alternative to a face-to-face course if you require a more extended program time or are not able to attend a face-to-face course due to location or other restrictions. With the online course you can access the materials at a time which suits you best, thus allowing you the flexibility to plan your CELTA work around your other professional and personal commitments. The course leads to the same CELTA qualification as the face-to-face course and all CELTA courses are assessed and moderated according to the same criteria.

Course Features:

  • The course aims to achieve the same objectives as face-to-face courses - that being the development of effective, principled teaching practice.
  • The course is blended with both online and face-to-face elements.
  • Teaching Practice (TP) is face-to-face and the interactive online materials have a strong practical emphasis.
  • Candidates are provided with online interactive tasks, guided video observation and forum discussion.
  • For each course there is an Online Course Tutor (OCT) and Teaching Practice Tutor(s) (TPT).
  • All Teaching Practice takes place face-to-face at the Training Center over an intensive 2 week period (weeks 17 & 18 of the course)

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.

CELTA Course Introduction and Aims

  • gain the recognition needed to work in accredited language centres both overseas and in Australia
  • be provided with a sound practical basis for teaching General English to adults
  • receive a report from the Training Center upon course completion.

CELTA Entry Criteria

Candidates must:

  • have reached a standard of education equivalent to university entrance level
  • be 20 years of age or be currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree programme
  • be competent in written and spoken English in order to follow the course successfully
  • complete a written application and pre-interview task
  • attend an interview.

Note: Acceptance is not automatic. In the case of an unsuccessful application, the Training Center cannot enter into correspondence or discussion concerning the reasons for a place on the course not having been offered. This rigorous selection process is undertaken in the interest of candidates and to ensure a high level of success on the course. Successful applicants will be given a comprehensive pre-course learning task to be completed prior to the course commencement.

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.

How Not to fail your CELTA Course.

  • Why do people fail the CELTA course? CELTA is not hard in the sense that the material is difficult to understand. The course is often considered difficult because it is very intensive and there are many deadlines to meet in the space of a month. The first, and perhaps main reason that people fail, is stress.
