Full-time online CELTA course (5 weeks)
Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm
This is a fully accredited 5-week fast-track online course, which prepares candidates to teach in both a regular classroom as well as online. The course takes places from Monday to Friday (9am until 5pm (GMT)).
Sessions are delivered by our tutors in an interactive and practical manner through the Zoom platform. These sessions are designed to help candidates acquire and put into practice the knowledge and techniques, which are needed when teaching in a regular classroom environment as well as in an online classroom.
Every morning also has preparation time when our tutors give guidance on how to prepare and plan for Teaching Practice. Like a regular face-to-face CELTA, candidates must complete 6 hours of Teaching Practice with lessons lasting 45 minutes. This is done every afternoon of the course with candidates teaching students from around the world through Zoom. These lessons last from 2pm to 4pm when candidates either teach or observe their peers. Class feedback is done afterwards.
Preparation time is timetabled in every day when our tutors give guidance on how to prepare for and plan lessons.

Full-time face-to-face CELTA course (4 weeks)
Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm
This is the fastest way to gain your fully accredited CELTA qualification with CES. Choose to complete a 4-week face-to-face course on location in one of our three CELTA centres (Dublin, Edinburgh and Leeds).
Sessions are delivered each day by our experienced tutors focusing on practical, learner-centred, teaching skills and theory before candidates have an opportunity to apply this in teaching practice. While this course is delivered in a face-to-face format, adaptations and considerations needed for online teaching are covered during input sessions.
Teaching practice is held daily, with real learners of English in a regular classroom. Each day ends with feedback with a tutor following teaching practice. Candidates are expected to observe their peers on days when they are not teaching to maximise learning opportunities and tutor feedback.
As with all CELTA course formats, candidates must complete 6 hours of observations and 4 written assignments. 100% attendance is expected for input sessions and teaching practice.
