Do you want a career change to English teaching? Do you want to travel the world? Or maybe you want to progress your ELT career?
When it comes to teaching English, the CELTA is one of the most respected and internationally recognised TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) qualifications.
As teaching practice is the main component of the course, CELTA qualified teachers are in demand by many reputed language schools across the world.
If you want to broaden your horizons and have access to more job opportunities, the CELTA will offer you real teaching practice and the core knowledge of teaching English as a foreign language.
The CELTA face-to-face course is taken in a classroom where you will need to be at the CELTA centre for the duration of your course. It’s important that you can commit to the required time of the course at the centre, whether is it a full time or a part time CELTA course.
The CELTA can be taken 100% online. CELTA courses are taking place throughout the year in different time zones, so search the timetable that suites you best! It doesn’t matter if the course is based in a European time zone for example, and you aren’t, if the schedule suits you, you are free to apply!
The most popular way to take a CELTA.
The intensive full-time courses last 4 – 6 weeks, depending on the training centre e.g. Monday – Friday, 9am to 5pm.
Part-time courses can last between 2 - 4 months, depending on the training centre.
This means fewer class hours per week e.g. Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Mixed or blended CELTA courses enable you to take the part of the course online and part of it on location at a English teacher training centre.
