ABOUT THE COURSE

CELTA - the Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults - focuses on teaching and learning strategies for EFL/ESOL and is mainly practical. In addition to your taught sessions, you will need to allow extra time for independent study, assignments and lesson preparation.

The course is an intensive programme of study to which you will be required to fully commit. This is a very practical course with a focus on hands-on teaching practise so that upon completion, you will feel confident beginning or continuing your career as an ESOL teacher with all the skills and knowledge you will need. Many of our students have even gone on to become teachers on the ESOL courses we offer at CONEL.

WHAT WILL I STUDY?

Topics covered can include:

  • Learners and teachers and the teaching and learning context
  • Language analysis and awareness
  • Language skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing
  • Planning and resources for different teaching contexts
  • Developing teaching skills and professionalism

WHAT WILL I NEED?

You will need to be:

  • aged 18 or over
  • a proficient English language user (between CEFR Level C1 and C2 or above)
  • educated to the standard required for entry into higher education

If English is not your first language, you should be able to provide recent evidence that your spoken and written command of the English language is adequate for the course - e.g. a recently obtained English language qualification or test result awarded no more than two years prior to the proposed date of enrolment and equivalent to a minimum of Cambridge English CAE Grade A/IELTS 8.0 in all sub-scores.

All applicants must have an interview and assessment to confirm that the course is suitable for them.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

CELTA is assessed through written and assignments and practical teaching. There are four written assignments (each 750–1,000 words), which focus on:

  • analysing and responding to adult learner needs
  • analysing language for teaching purposes
  • teaching language skills
  • reflecting on classroom teaching

Your teaching practice will also be assessed, over a total of 6 hours, working with adult classes at a minimum of two levels of ability. Assessment is based on your overall performance.

WHAT WILL IT COST?
