Lesson preparation:

lesson preparation is initially supervised by the course tutors, but you are encouraged to work more independently as the course progresses. By the end of the course you should have a basic toolkit which allows you to teach effectively in an EFL classroom.

Observation:

you will observe a minimum of six hours of classes of experienced teachers (this may include two hours of audio material).

Our teachers

Our teacher trainers are experts in their field and use a variety of effective educational methods and strategies throughout the course. This means trainee teachers benefit from an outstanding learning experience themselves before applying the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own classrooms.

Real teaching experience

CELTA is taught in our schools, so you will become immersed in a real teaching environment. Teaching practice takes place in our classrooms, with enthusiastic people from the local community that want to improve their English (Edu-action offers all lessons with trainee teachers free of charge to students).

What is provided?

All teaching and learning resources for the course are provided, including stationery for teaching practice and books for your written assignments from the Learning Centre. You will also have access to photocopiers, computers, and printers, and will be given training in how to use interactive whiteboards. You will have access to a wide range of facilities at our schools, including a dedicated CELTA classroom.

Please note that the course is very intensive

Most participants tell us that they spend 2-3 additional hours at home each evening researching language, completing written assignments and preparing lessons. This course provides you with a basic toolkit for teaching English and covers a lot of ground; although we look at some language analysis, and tutors will support you, the assumption is that you will research grammar and language issues for lessons outside the sessions.

You should ensure that you do not have other time consuming commitments during the course and are in good physical and mental health before embarking on the CELTA.
