Part-time/Online CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)

The University of Cambridge ESOL CELTA TEFL course is the most recognised initial teacher training course in the world. In a unique collaboration with Cambridge ESOL and International House London, International House Dublin is offering the Cambridge CELTA course online as a 'blended-learning' teacher training course that combines online CELTA training with face-to-face components.

Each CELTA course run by International House Dublin is externally moderated by a University of Cambridge ESOL assessor. This guarantees a constant high standard and consistency of course content, trainers and facilities. Online CELTA training is assessed and moderated according to the same criteria as the face-to-face course, and the course leads to a full CELTA qualification.

Part-time/online CELTA Teaching Practice

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 International House Dublin teacher trainer will give you feedback on each of your teaching practice sessions.

Part-time/online CELTA Training Component

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.
