Daily CELTA course timetable

The full-time daily timetable consists of three hours of input sessions, two hours of teaching practice and a feedback session in which the lesson is discussed with the tutor and other group participants.

In addition, two to three hours need to be set aside daily for lesson preparation and homework. The participants also observe qualified teachers presenting regular classes.

The course is highly intensive and demands full commitment from participants throughout. Applicants should not undertake the course if they have any work or study commitments or health conditions that may jeopardise their ability to complete it.

The assessment, which is continuous and integrated, consists of two components:

Planning and Teaching

In this component candidates are required to practise teaching for a total of six hours, working with learners at a minimum of two levels. By the end of the six hours supervised teaching practice they should have demonstrated successful achievement of all the teaching practice assessment criteria.

Classroom-related written assignments

This component consists of four written assignments, each with a total of 750 – 1000 words. These assignments are internally assessed and externally moderated.

Trainees are informed of their progress during the course by written feedback on their teaching practice and by mid-course tutorial. All course participants receive a report from the teacher training centre which analyses the trainee's performance, and is a useful reference for employment. Successful course participants are awarded a CELTA certificate on the basis of assessment by all the course tutors and validation by an external assessor. Candidates who meet the course requirements and who demonstrate they have met the pass criteria for all assessed components will be awarded a Pass.

Pass (Grade B) is awarded to candidates whose performance on the written assignments meets the specified criteria, and who have demonstrated in their teaching practice a level of ability and achievement significantly higher than that required to meet pass-level criteria in relation to classroom teaching skills.

Pass (Grade A) is awarded to candidates whose performance on the written assignments meets the specified criteria, and who have demonstrated in their practice a level of ability and achievement significantly higher than that required to meet pass-level criteria in relation to planning for effective teaching and classroom teaching skills.

Candidates who fail to meet criteria in any or all assessed components will be awarded a Fail.

The CELTA certificates take up to twelve weeks to arrive to Indonesia from the UK.
