Cambridge CELTA Course Online
The Cambridge CELTA Course Online is a 12-week combined face-to-face and online teacher training course comprising 120 hours' teaching time. There are 10 sessions of supervised lesson planning & teaching practice at IH Madrid (on Saturday mornings), including observation of experienced and qualified teachers. The training is assessed and moderated according to the same criteria as the face-to-face course, and the course leads to full CELTA qualification.
Teaching Practice (TP) is an important part of all teacher training courses. The face-to-face element of the Cambridge CELTA Course Online ensures trainees gain this valuable experience. Teaching Practice is conducted in groups, with each candidate teaching for a total of six hours, with peers observing. An experienced IH teacher trainer will give you feedback on each of your teaching practice sessions.
CELTA training in the online part of the course includes interactive tasks, guided video observation and forum discussion. The aim is to develop effective, principled teaching methodologies. An advantage of the online CELTA component is the increased amount of time and support for you to reflect on and develop what you have learnt
The only required to come into the centre is on a Saturday morning from 10.00 - 14.30 over 10 Saturday mornings.
