CELTA is an introductory course for people with little or no teaching experience in English language teaching. Candidates with some experience but little or no formal ELT training are also considered.
CELTA courses are of an extremely practical nature. They are approximately 120 hours in duration and comprise methodology, language analysis, lesson planning, practice teaching and feedback, the observation of practising teachers and writing.
There are a few steps to being accepted on to the course.
The first step is to submit the application form. We then review it and if you are suitable we call you for an interview. The interview comprises a pre-interview task to establish your ability to analyse aspects of language and for us to ascertain your overall language awareness. This is reviewed by a tutor and then the interview takes place to establish your suitability for the course.
The entire process usually takes about two hours and can be conducted in person on campus, online, or a combination of both.
We charge an adminstrative fee of €50 for the interview. If accepted on the course, this is taken from your overall course fee.
