CELTA 100% Online hosted by Brisbane

For a limited time only due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is now possible to complete the CELTA fully online from the safety of your home.

How does the CELTA 100% Online work?

The fully online CELTA meets all of the Cambridge requirements and your certificate will be exactly the same as if you had completed the face to face version of the course.

The first month of the course does not include any teaching practice sessions and will allow you to get used to learning in a virtual environment and train in using it effectively. Input and teaching practice will be 'live' and through the video conferencing platform, Zoom. You will be teaching real students who will be logging into the lessons via Zoom and your classes will be assessed and moderated by an accredited CELTA tutor. Part of the assessment also includes four written assignments that you will need to complete throughout the course.

Will it say that I took the CELTA "Online" on my certificate?

Your certificate will state that you have completed the CELTA and it will be awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment (a part of the University of Cambridge). It will not state what format or how you took the CELTA.

What are the requirements for taking the CELTA 100% Online?

The eligibility requirements are still the same for taking the CELTA 100% Online. These requirements are:

  1.  That you are 18 or over
  2.  That you have a high language and grammar awareness or have an English language proficiency score of an IELTS 7.5 or a high C1

CELTA Course Content

The course is divided into:

1. Language Analysis

These sessions:

  • develop an ability to analyse language in terms of meaning, form, sound and usage
  • mainly focus on grammar and pronunciation

2. Methodology

These sessions cover:

  • different approaches to language teaching
  • techniques for presentation and practice of new language
  • classroom management
  • lesson-planning
  • use of commercially produced and authentic materials
  • developing listening, reading and writing skills

How Much Time Does an Online Blended CELTA Take Each Week?

The Online Blended CELTA has face to face components over a period to be determined (see dates and  fees). The online component is divided roughly into about 2 modules per week with each module taking 2-3 hours. You can expect to do 4-6 hours each week just for online work and then probably 2-4 for outside reading and assignments.

CELTA Course Assessment

Assessment is continuous and is based on:

  • performance in Teaching Practice
  • an ability to evaluate one’s own lessons
  • the quality/punctuality of written assignments
  • lesson plans
  • participation in all aspects of the course
  • attendance, which is expected to be 100%

It is possible to pass the course at three levels: Pass A - Pass B - Pass

The final grades are awarded by the tutors and ratified by the visiting Cambridge assessor after the 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 intense and there are many deadlines to meet in the space of a month (or 10 weeks in its extensive form). A lot of concepts that are possibly quite new to the candidate are introduced in quick succession and candidates have to be ready to assimilate the information and apply it quickly.

The CELTA qualification is the most prestigious and well-known of all the TEFL courses. It is recognised all over the world, not only in Australia. This means that with the CELTA qualification, numerous TEFL job opportunities are available worldwide.
