The Online CELTA

Cambridge Assessment has granted that CELTA can finally be taken 100% online.

The course will have the same content as the full time, part-time, and online blended options. The main difference is that classes will be live-streamed through a video sharing platform.

Just like the face-to-face CELTA course, there will still be real teaching practice assessed and moderated by a certified CELTA Assessor.

What the Experts are Saying

“The ELT Campus TEFL Preparation Course is definitely worth its modest price and the time one needs to invest in completing the course. Anyone planning to do a CELTA will greatly benefit from the basic orientation and understanding that the TEFL Prep Course provides. The videos offer a glimpse into what a 'real' ELT classroom is like, invaluable for those with no experience in particular.””

Steve Oakes, Co-Author of Speakout English Language Coursebook Series by Pearson and Teacher Trainer

“As an experienced CELTA and YL-extension teacher trainer I’m so pleased to finally have an opportunity to refer potential candidates to a TESOL/TEFL Preparation Course. Many trainees coming onto CELTA do not realise the intensity of the course which often negatively affects their overall performance. Now ELTCampus offers a solid preparation course that familiarises candidates with many of the concepts we go into and put into practice during the CELTA course. For some less confident candidates this course, which covers key concepts, essential terminology and provides an insight into communicative language teaching in practice, can make the difference between a pass or fail and it can even be the difference between a pass and a strong pass.”

Anna Hasper, Teacher Trainer, Course Materials Writer

“The course would be helpful for all applicants of CELTA-like TEFL courses including the Irish CELT because in my experience the greatest obstacle to confident, coherent lesson planning and successful course completion has been the difficulty in acquiring and maintaining a grasp of the central principles of modern language teaching.”

Tony Penston, Teacher Trainer and Author of "A Concise Grammar for English Language Teachers" and "Essential Phonetics for English Language Teachers"

“I wish there had been an orientation course available before I did the CELTA course! I was already a qualified teacher. I am a native speaker of English. I thought this should be the easiest topic to teach to date. It was the most difficult! I had no idea about terms like "graded language", "language skills", "TTT", or "choral drilling" etc etc. Three fellow CELTA students pulled out in the first week! If you are thinking of doing any type of TEFL course , even if you already have a teaching qualification, I would strongly recommend taking the "TEFL Preparation Course" with the very dedicated teaching team at ELTCAMPUS to give you an insight into all the new terminology and teaching skills you will have to learn. They can also help you to save time, money and the biggie....Stress!”

Marianne Jordan, Pronunciation Consultant and Content Writer for Pronunciation.Club

“The TEFL Preparation Course for CELTA by ELTCampus was shortlisted for the Innovation in Teacher Resources Award, 2016.”

Pre-CELTA Course Made Me More Confident I found the course extremely useful, and I feel more confident about completing the CELTA certification. I have been doing some preparation for understanding English grammar on my own. but completing this pre-CELTA course that helped me focus on teaching. It helped me understand the mindset I need towards teaching. It really helped me. Visual, Interactive, Audio and Written Content I really enjoyed the various ways the information was presented to me. It was visual, written, interactive, aural and I could see a classroom. Being able to see a classroom in action was very useful. The quiz to determine primarily what kind of learner I am was very interesting too! I think it’s important for me to think about the way I learn and my past learning experiences to work towards understanding how to teach better. I also found the hand-drawn images during the course really fun and especially the little sound effects and the cheering by the little drawn people! Providing a certificate of completion at the end of the pre-CELTA course was a good idea, because I feel a little more accomplished. I feel ready to tackle the next challenge that is CELTA. Alana

  • Is there an online CELTA course that I can take?

    Under normal circumstances you can't take the CELTA entirely online. The CELTA course requires you to complete observed teaching hours and participate in observing other teachers. The formats of the CELTA course are normally face to face or part time for people living in the area near the CELTA centre wit some online component. However, with the Covid-19 pandemic, the CELTA can now be taken entirely online.

  • Will this course get me accepted onto a teacher training course such as the CELTA?

This isn't our style. We believe in learning and the journey you are about to take as a teacher. This online preparation course covers the basic concepts, but cannot guarantee a place for you on a course such as the CELTA or Trinity Cert TESOL. These courses have strict requirements. You'll be assessed on your initial pre-interview tasks that you complete when you apply. Then you'll have an interview. The tutors are checking not only your English language level - both spoken and written - but also things like your level of language awareness, aptitude to be a good teacher and readiness to be taught.
