Take the CELTA Online via Rome

For the first time, Cambridge Assessment are allowing CELTAs to be taken online. This is due to the ongoing pandemic and ensuring trainees safety and welfare are put first.

The accredited CELTA centre in Rome are now offering the CELTA online. Applications are now open!

How will an Online CELTA course work?

The syllabus and content will be exactly the same. The only difference is that you will be learning the content and participating in seminars, teaching practice and feedback sessions through the video conferencing platform, Zoom.
The courses will be delivered over a five week period from Monday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm.

How will I be assessed on the Online CELTA?

Just like the face-to-face CELTA courses, you will be assessed through:

  • Participating
  • Four written assignments
  • Most important, completing six hours of teaching practice
  • The teaching practice will take up most of your grade. This aspect will be conducted through zoom where you will be teaching a class of English Language Learners. They will understand you are a trainee teacher.

    While you are teaching, you will be moderated and assessed by a qualified CELTA Tutor. They will continually offer constructive feedback throughout the CELTA course to aid your teacher development.

    Will it say on my CELTA certificate that I took the course online?

    Your CELTA certificate will not disclose how you took the course and will look exactly the same as a trainee who had completed the course face-to-face.

    What kind of jobs can I obtain with an Online CELTA qualification?

    By taking the CELTA Online, your CV is instantly more employable. Most reputable schools recognise this qualification and actively employ candidates who have a CELTA along with a bachelors degree.

    If you are looking for a TEFL career where you can travel around the world, this qualification will help you. From working in schools, colleges, summer camps to online, the CELTA will open more doors to jobs.

    Teaching Practice

    Each candidate teaches for a total of six hours, working with classes at two levels of ability but three levels is normal with larger groups. When you change levels you also change tutor. Assessment is based on overall performance at the end of the six hours. You will teach for between 30 minutes to 1 hour with other candidates in a 1.5/2/2.5 hour lesson. The maximum number of students is 12 in any class. You will be observed by your tutor and the other candidates while you teach. This is followed by oral feedback with your tutor and the other candidates, and then written feedback from the tutor. Oral feedback is a time to be open to critical analysis of each lesson. Feedback is fundamental for your development, a moment to reflect on experience and learn but not always easy to do. Due to the fact that you teach with other candidates, group lesson planning is paramount. Although an hour is planned for this in your 9-5 day we recommend that you set aside time to plan with other candidates outside this time. As a rule of thumb, study time, beyond the timetabled 9-5 day, is at least half an hour for every hour on the timetable.


    You are also required to observe 6 hours of professionals teaching, three of these are made available to you online and 3 are live at our centre. You may have to observe the live lessons outside the 9-5 timetabled day.


    Over the duration of the course you are required to complete 4 assessed assignments ranging in length between 750 – 1,000 words.


    Attendance of 100% is expected on the CELTA. As CELTA is a course-based award, absences may hinder a candidate’s chances of successful fulfilment of the assessment criteria.
