The Cambridge CELTA is the world's most recognised English language teaching qualification and is an essential first step in a career in TEFL. Successful participants will be able to use this qualification to teach in schools in Australia and overseas. Our four-week full-time and 10 week part-time initial teacher training courses lead to the award of the internationally recognised certificate.

The course is designed for individuals who are motivated and ready to learn from a variety of backgrounds. Teaching experience is not necessary, but a good command of both spoken and written English is essential to cope with the demands of the course. Participants must be open to new ideas and techniques while also being reflective and supportive. It is crucial that trainees are committed to functioning as a team.

The course follows the Cambridge CELTA syllabus. Teaching techniques are practised by the course participants in regular teaching practice sessions with adult students of English.

Topics covered:

  • The general principles and techniques of teaching and learning a foreign language
  • The English language: linguistic form, function, meaning and phonology
  • Teaching and learning the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing
  • Classroom techniques: presentation, practice, checking learning, error analysis, correction, classroom management, group work and pair work
  • Lesson planning; course planning; timetables
  • Different learning and teaching styles at adult level, adult learners' motivations and learning styles
  • Other factors that affect learning such as adult literacy
  • The evaluation and use of published and non-published resources and materials along with learning how to adapt authentic materials into concrete learning tools
  • Professional development: evaluating one's own strengths and weaknesses, preparing to become a teacher, colleague and employee

How am I assessed?

Candidates are assessed continuously throughout the course and there is no final examination. Each course is moderated by an external assessor, who is approved by Cambridge ESOL.
