These courses are fully online and do not require face-to-face attendance
Teaching practice with real students will be done online.
You will use two platforms that the school will advise you of.
For the first time and for a limited period, the CELTA is now 100% Online. This is due to ongoing disruptions regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that you don’t have to put your teaching career on hold – you can take the CELTA from the safety of your own home!
These CELTA Centres in Europe are now accepting applications:
These courses will be ideal for applicants who reside in Europe or Africa. It’s important that you pick a time zone closest to you as you will need to be present during the Zoom teaching practice and input sessions. If you aren’t, it will have an implication on your grade, so make sure you are committing to a schedule that is best for your homelife.
The main difference is that your will complete the teaching practice via online using a video conferencing tool, such as Zoom. There will still be input and lesson planning sessions, which you will do using Moodle and live sessions.
You will still be learning the same CELTA content and it is necessary for you to undertake a minimum of six hours of teaching practice, which will be assessed and moderated by a qualified CELTA Tutor. You will also need to complete four written assignments which need to be submitted by the end of the online CELTA course.
No, just like CELTA Online Blended courses, your certificate will not reference where or how you took the CELTA. It notes that you have completed it and it will be awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment (a part of the University of Cambridge).
The eligibility requirements are the same as taking a face-to-face CELTA. This includes:
It’s also important that you have the following at home:
Three are a few steps to applying for a CELTA course.
First – make sure you have committed to a time zone that is suitable for you.
Second – clear 15 minutes of your schedule to fill out the initial application form.
Third – wait for a member of the StudyCELTA team to get in contact with you, confirming they have processed your application and sent you a pre-interview task. This shouldn’t take more than 24 hours (unless it’s a weekend) but do get in contact with us if it’s longer.
When you have completed your pre-interview task and sent it back to us, we will screen it and, if successful, you will get an invitation to an interview.
