Online CELTA

You can study CELTA online and have the IH London training experience from the comfort of your home. 

 

 

CELTA is a structured and practical introduction to teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL). The online course has the same syllabus as the face-to-face CELTA  and you will learn techniques relevant to both online and face-to-face teaching.

IH London pioneered online training and co-developed the Online CELTA course with Cambridge.  

For the online course, you will complete your teaching practice with language students, online via Zoom and  plan your lessons for this mode of study. Your tutors will also discuss face-to-face teaching so you will be prepared for either mode after the course. You can also access and observe lessons of both online and face-to-face teaching.  

Much of the course content and methodology is presented through an online self-study course, designed with tasks and film clips you can access at any time. There is a weekly schedule of topics and the online study can be completed asynchronously to suit your schedule. There are live synchronous sessions with the tutor, where your progress will be monitored and your tutor will support you through forums.  

You need to be confident with technology as you will be studying online, using different Apps and will be teaching on Zoom.  You need to be comfortable with this mode before the course. 

Nowadays, most teachers need to prepare materials for their lessons using online tools and present well designed worksheets.  The skills you may already have are really useful for preparing lessons. These are the things a teacher regularly needs to do, including making Powerpoint presentations, organising documents and PDFs on a computer, and being proficient in Microsoft Word.
