Study Celta face to face OR online ?

How does the 100% Online CELTA course work?

Up to now, “Online CELTA courses” have been blended courses, meaning partly online and partly face to face. Our new 100% Online CELTA course does not require any face to face training at all. 

You will complete all of the training, teaching practice and assignments online on Zoom. There is a dedicated input session on Zoom and your interview will also be via Zoom, so you will get firsthand experience of using Zoom even before the course has started. 

This is an intensive course so you can expect to receive 30 hours of training per week and spend an additional 15-25 hours studying in your own time. Wherever you are in the world, you will have access to this course and to the opportunities which will open up for you upon successful graduation from the CELTA.

Online Training

  • Sunday to Thursday, you will attend dynamic, practical training sessions online, led by our team of experienced CELTA tutors.

  • We also provide one dedicated input session on teaching in “real” classrooms and three video observations of these type of classes as part of your training.

What is the difference between Fully Online CELTA and Online CELTA?

The difference is in the format of the courses. On the blended Online CELTA, input is delivered online while lesson planning, teaching practice and feedback are face to face. On the fully online CELTA, lesson planning, teaching practice and feedback are also delivered online.
