WHAT IS CELTA?
CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) is the most recognised initial English Language Teaching qualification in the world. It is designed for people with little or no teaching experience, but it can be taken by more experienced teacher who require a formal qualification.
The core elements of the CELTA course are
- Teaching practice, hands-on classroom practice gives you the tools to start teaching straight away
- Seminar input, where you have the opportunity to understand the theory and techniques behind Communicative Language Teaching
- Observation of experienced teachers and of peers provides an opportunity to learn from colleagues
- Assessed written assignments give you an opportunity to reflect on your teaching and the principles behind it.
