CELTA training is available in four different formats:
Please, see below for the calendar.
CELTA Full Time

CELTA Part Time
A path that counts the same number of hours, mainly on Saturday (with the addition of a few Fridays or Sundays) and spread over several months, to allow you to combine study and work.
Suitable for those who work or are busy studying during the week and can devote themselves to the course only on weekends.
Part Time CELTA consists of 15 lessons on Saturday from 9:30 to 17:30 and 3 lessons on Friday or Sunday (respectively at the beginning, middle and end of the course) from 9:30 to 15:30 (all lessons have one-hour break), for a total of 120+ hours.

During the CELTA course, five key topics will be addressed:
1. Learners and teachers, and the teaching and learning context, which aims to raise awareness of the general dimension of English language learning, in relation to the linguistic and cultural background of the learners;
2. Language analysis and awareness, which illustrates the key terminology in English language teaching and teaching planning, together with evidence of functional knowledge of English grammar, phonology and vocabulary;
3. Language skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing, which illustrates the key concepts and terminology used for English teaching skills, together with the application of different approaches to the text;
4. Planning and resources for different teaching contexts, which explores the topic of effective didactic planning in general, applied to individual students but also in relation to the planning of future lessons;
5. Developing teaching skills and professionalism, which focuses instead on the organisation of the class and group activities, the correct use of teaching materials and strategies for involving students at different levels.

CELTA is designed for all those who wish to pursue a career in the field of English language teaching. For beginners, CELTA offers an excellent theoretical and practical basis which helps not only to develop one’s knowledge of the language but also and above all to become familiar with teaching groups of students. Those who already have a few years of experience will benefit from continuous feedback and will have an internationally recognised certification to present to future employers.
The time to spend studying is subjective. When choosing your course, it is good to keep in mind that, in addition to attending lessons, you will have to prepare material that will be evaluated by the teachers, in order to pass the course. This will be very useful during the first years of teaching English.
For this reason, we advise candidates to carve out as much time as possible, especially if their aim is to attend a full-time course. Otherwise, we would recommend a part-time, blended or online course, as the number of lessons per week is lower.
It is not necessary to be a native speaker, as long as you have a good standard of English which will enable you to teach at a range of levels (CEFR level C1/C2).
There is no final exam, but candidates get constant feedback and assessment during the course.
