We provide all the support you need online and offline in order to successfully obtain your Cambridge CELTA certificate.

The format

As a participant of this course, you will complete online work with the support from a tutor and attend our school in Barcelona on 12 Saturdays (over 16 weeks). There will be breaks during the course so that you can complete your assignments.

You can expect to spend a minimum of five hours a week studying online. You will complete interactive tasks, participate in guided video observation and contribute to the forum discussions. Your tutor will also join you in the forum discussions and provide online tutorials. You can revisit and revise from the materials throughout the course. One of the great things about this is that you can complete the work in a place and at a time which suits you.

In the first week you will observe a tutor. Then you will teach one 45-minute class on each teaching practice day and observe your peers teaching three 45-minute classes. During the course there will be breaks to complete assignments and work on your lesson plans.

The schedule on Saturdays will be:

09.30—10.00 Feedback, planning and set up of the day’s classes

Assessment

The Online CELTA is assessed and moderated using the same criteria as the intensive 4-week face-to-face course and leads to exactly the same qualification. The University of Cambridge requires candidates on all CELTA courses teach a total of six hours during the course. This teaching is observed and assessed by course tutors and is divided into 8-10 separate classes for each candidate.
