Dates for the next CELTA course at IH Aberdeen will be posted on the website soon. To register your interest please contact us. Provisional start date 1st October 2018.
CELTA is an introductory course designed for people with little or no previous English language teaching experience or training. CELTA provides you with the opportunity to teach English as a second language all over the world. CELTA will give you the skills and confidence to teach English to adults whether you’re a recent graduate or looking for a career change.
You don’t need previous English language teaching experience. The course will give you new teaching techniques and a qualification to confirm your ability to do the job properly.
You should be aged 20 or over, though we will accept candidates aged 18-19 at our discretion.
Your educational standard should be equivalent to that required for entry into higher education. If English is not your first language you need to have a minimum language level equivalent to C2 on the Common European Framework (CEF).
Acceptance onto a CELTA course is conditional upon successful completion of an application form (which includes a Language Awareness Task) and an interview.
CELTA training will help you:
There is no final exam. Assessment is based on teaching practice and written assignments. You need to pass both elements to be awarded the CELTA Certificate.
Please note: This is a demanding course, there is a lot of work outside of timetabled hours which mostly consists of lesson preparation and written assignments. You must have the motivation to become an effective teacher and complete assignments and assessments throughout.
