The Full Time CELTA in Bergamo

The full-time course is very intensive and lasts 4 weeks for 5 days a week from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm. In the morning, your tutors will deliver workshops on various aspects of the English language and teaching techniques, followed by teaching practice in the afternoon. You will be teaching real students and you will receive feedback on your lessons from your tutors and your colleagues on the course.

The Part Time CELTA in Bergamo

The part-time course is less intensive but equally demanding. It usually lasts between 20 and 22 weeks with at least 120 contact hours of required attendance. Lessons usually run every Monday from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm.

Written Assignments

There are 4 written assignments which focus on:

  • Analysing and responding to learners needs
  • Analysing language for teaching purposes
  • Teaching language skills
  • Reflecting on classroom teaching


Below are what is required to be able to qualify for the course:

  • Being 18 years of age
  • English CEFR level C1 or C2 / IELTS 7.0  / Cambridge C1 Advanced (CAE)
  • Having a good standard of education (2 ‘A’ levels or a good high school leaving certificate – consider that some employers may require a degree)

The applications are screened by our tutors: you will be asked to complete a written task which focuses on language awareness and other issues relating to teaching English. If the task shows that you have the appropriate level of English and the potential to develop your skills to pass the course, you will be shortlisted and invited for an interview. Successful candidates will be notified shortly afterwards.

Given its intensive nature, it is highly recommended that you do not take on other commitments while on the course – especially the full-time course.
