CELTA Course Formats in Perth - Full Time, Part Time, Online Blended and Fully Online

When deciding on taking a CELTA via Perth, it's important to pick a timetable that is suitable for you. The different types of CELTA courses are as follows:

CELTA Full Time

The CELTA Full Time course is typically four weeks long, Monday to Friday and is usually between 9am - 5pm. You will need to be at the centre in Perth to complete the entirety of this CELTA course. This is an intensive and immersive course where you will need to dedicate four weeks of your time to the CELTA. We strongly suggest you do not work or have other commitments while completing the full time CELTA course in Perth.

CELTA Part Time

CELTA can also be taken in a part time format, which is great if you live locally and have other commitments. The part time course will be at the centre and usually run over 10 - 15 weeks and they typically run either on a Saturday or in the evenings (check the course information).

CELTA Online Blended

This is a more flexible way of taking the CELTA. The Online blended course is a mixture of online learning and classroom learning and can be taken over 12 - 16 weeks (check the course information). Typically, you need to complete approximately two weeks of classroom learning, whether that is in a two week block or spread across the course e.g. two evenings per week. The classroom learning will be for your teaching practice, guided lesson planning and feedback sessions. The rest of the CELTA is self-study and can be done at home.

The CELTA can now be taken online via Perth to ensure schools, tutors and student's safety during Covid-19. There are two ways to taking the CELTA -- full time or part time.

CELTA Online Full Time

The full time online CELTA means that you need to complete the course in 4 - 5 weeks. Typically, the timings are the same with the courses being Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm. It is very similar to the standard full time course except all components will be done via Zoom and the Cambridge Open Source learning platform (Moodle). Zoom will be for your live, assessed teaching practice, Guided Lesson Planning (GDP) and Feedback sessions.

CELTA Part Time

The CELTA Part Time Online course can taken over 10 - 15 weeks. This is a more flexible solution as you commit fewer online live learning hours per week and the rest is self-study. Again, you will need to use the video conferencing tool, Zoom, and Cambridge Open Source learning platform (Moodle) to complete the course. Zoom will be for your live, assessed teaching practice, Guided Lesson Planning (GDP) and Feedback sessions.

About the CELTA Course in Perth

CELTA Course Perth Introduction and Aims

CELTA provides a qualification for teachers without previous training, little or no experience as a language teacher, or without a NEAS (National ELICOS Accreditation Scheme) recognised English language teaching qualification. The CELTA is recognised throughout the world and is a pre-requisite to teach in many institutions overseas and in Australia.

You can read everything you will need to know about the Cambridge CELTA course here.

CELTA Course Aims

Successful candidates will:

  • gain specialist knowledge in the field of English Language Teaching with methodology based on best practice in English language teaching institutions worldwide
  • 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 centre upon course completion.
  • successful candidates receive their internationally recognised Cambridge University ESOL CELTA certificate

CELTA Entry Criteria

Candidates must:

  • have reached a standard of education equivalent to university entrance level
  • be 18 years of age
  • 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 centre 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 course commencement.

CELTA Course Perth: 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.

CELTA Course Assessment

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 the University of Cambridge, 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 preferred 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 to have 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.
