The course consists of several parts:

Before each lesson you teach, you will have one-on-one contact with your teaching practice tutor.


You will also observe professional English language teachers throughout the course, as well as sit in on teaching practice lessons from your peers. You will be involved in the feedback process for your peers’ practice lessons.


After observing your peers teach, you will provide them with feedback on their lessons. Your tutor will guide feedback sessions and contribute with his/her own suggestions and comments.

You will also receive feedback from your peers and tutors on your own practice lessons.

Input Sessions

These are led by course tutors and cover all key aspects of English language teaching such as methodology, lesson planning, learning an unknown language, teaching grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary. Course assignments will also be set and discussed during these input sessions.

Written Assignments

You will complete four written assignments during the course. Each of these assignments will be between 750 and 1,000 words, not including extra materials, lesson plans, samples of students’ writing,and results of questionnaires. In addition to these written assignments, you will have to submit lesson plans, observation sheets and self-evaluations for observed and taught lessons.

The CELTA assessment is made not only on your ability to teach and your language awareness, but also on your overall professional attitude and behaviour.

Assessment of candidates is by the course tutors and is continuous but the course will also be moderated by an external assessor who visits the course for quality assurance purposes.

CELTA is awarded to candidates who have completed the course and who have met the assessment criteria for all written and practical assignments.

  • Plan and prepare lessons designed to develop their learners' overall language competence
