About the course

The CELTA course from September 2017 will be available for an Advanced Learner Loan.

Online CELTA involves an induction evening, 6 hours of teaching practice onsite over 9 sessions and 2 observations of experienced teachers.  You will be assessed on your teaching practice and four written assignments.  Course units, background reading, lesson planning and group discussion are carried out at home or online with regular contact with tutors. The final qualification is identical to that awarded for the face-to-face course.
