CELTA 100% Online Hosted via Barcelona (Passeig de Gracia and Universitat)

The CELTA can now be taken 100% online, ensuring candidates can continue their teaching training from their safety of their own homes.
The Barcelona (both Passeig de Gracia and Universitat) CELTA centres offer full time and part-time 100% online CELTA courses, meaning that from the comfort of your home you will be able to get a world-class qualification that enables you teach English in a classroom and also in an online environment.

How will the Cambridge Online CELTA work?

The Passeig de Gracia online CELTA course uses the Cambridge Moodle platform, with Teaching Practice sessions using live video conferencing, and additional work taking place in candidates own time using Moodle. The Universitat centre has all sessions (including input, feedback and Teaching Practice sessions) live via video conferencing, to offer the face-to-face CELTA experience online.

Even if you do not have any previous experience using video conferencing platforms Zoom, the Barcelona CELTA centres will help you get used to the online platform. In addition to this, you will also be taught how to use some of the latest tools in teaching English online which will give you a great advantage if you plan to do this in the future.

You will be learning the same content as you would on a face-to-face CELTA course, which will be the core methodologies and principles to teaching English in a classroom, which can also be adapted online. The course will also include language and grammar methodology, choosing materials and practical teaching experience.

Will the CELTA 100% Online course be examined differently?

As the content will be the same, you will still be assessed and moderated by a qualified CELTA trainer. You will need to complete a minimum of six hours teaching practice and you will need to complete four written assignments during the course.

How will the online teaching practice run?

At the beginning of your course, you will be divided into small groups of around six and an experienced tutor will guide you on how to teach a class.

For your assessed teaching practice, you will be teaching classes of around six to twelve students. You will have access to one-to-one tutor support and you will be given feedback from your tutor and your peers. You will also get the opportunity to observe your peers, learn from them and offer them feedback.

Part Time Online CELTA courses via the Barcelona centres

For those unable to commit to the intensity of a four or five week course, the online part time CELTA is an easier and more flexible solution. With our Barcelona (Passeig de Gracia) centre's part-time online CELTA, you need only to commit just 15 – 20 hours per week of study, which usually spans over 14 weeks. With the Universitat centre's part-time online CELTA, the course length will vary from around 9 weeks to 13 weeks, depending on the course.

Teaching Practice sessions will be on specific days and will depend on the course dates you choose. For both the Passeig de Gracia and Universitat centres there are typically two schedules available.

For the Part-time CELTA, you can work through the content week by week. You will need to dedicate at least 5 hours per week to the input sessions and you will need to attend the teaching practice during the schedule you have chosen, which will be six hours per week. There will also be additional home study, so you will be expect to complete 15 – 20 hours per week in total, depending on how much home study you allocate.

About the CELTA Courses

The CELTA course is the original "TEFL" course and provides initial training leading to a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA). It is intended for those without previous experience who wish to enter the profession and for teachers with no previous training in this field.

Success in the CELTA Certificate has enabled many candidates to obtain their first teaching position: the CELTA course that we offer in both our Barcelona (Passeig de Gracia and Universitat) centres is highly regarded by employers as providing sound initial training and a strong basis from which to develop as a teacher of English.

CELTA Course Content

The CELTA course covers the following syllabus:

  • Language Analysis and Awareness
  • The Learner, the Teacher and the Teaching/Learning Context
  • Planning for Effective Teaching
  • Classroom Management Skills
  • Teaching Procedures and Techniques
  • Resources and Materials
  • Professional Development
  • Classroom Observation
  • Teaching Practice

CELTA Teaching Practice

Teaching practice is an integral part of the course. This is organised in small groups of 5-6 trainees with volunteer students at two or three different levels. After each teaching practice session an evaluation of the session is led by a course tutor. At the Barcelona (Passeig de Gracia and Universitat) centres, trainees are expected to liaise within their groups outside course hours in order to plan teaching practice classes, according to guidelines provided by course tutors.

CELTA Course Assessment

Trainees are continuously assessed in all the syllabus areas, including written assignments, and with particular emphasis on their teaching ability and potential. At the end of the course successful candidates receive the Cambridge Certificate and a Progress Report.
