CELTA

CELTA is the original TEFL course and provides initial training leading to a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. It is intended for those without previous experience who wish to enter the profession and for teachers with no previous training. Success in the certificate has enabled many candidates to achieve their first teaching position. The course is highly regarded by employers as providing sound initial training and a strong basis from which to develop as a teacher of English.

 

Courses have a minimum of 120 contact hours and candidates need to dedicate a minimum of 80 hours for the required reading, research, assignments and lesson preparation.
 

Trainees are continuously assessed in all the syllabus areas, including written assignments, and with particular emphasis on their teaching ability and potential. At the end of the course, successful candidates receive the Cambridge CELTA certificate and a detailed progress report. 

DELTA and other courses

If you have several years’ experience in teaching English to adults and want to formalise your professional development as well as acquire a highly-regarded qualification which opens many professional doors, then the University of Cambridge DELTA course could be for you.

Teacher Training Open Days

Every year in collaboration with Cambridge English, International House Madrid organises a Teacher Training Open Day with a selection of seminars and workshops for teachers working in a variety of teaching situations.

 

These sessions are available to all practising teachers in Madrid and they are a great opportunity to share ideas. The sessions are completely free and a certificate of attendance is provided to participants.

 

Our next Teacher Training Open Day is scheduled for January 2021. If you would like to know more details, send an email to [email protected] to be included in the teacher training news bulletin.
