Project Review

The CELTA course covers the following syllabus:

  • Language Analysis and Awareness
  • The Learner, the Teacher and the Teaching/Learning Context
  • Planning for Effective Teaching
  • Classroom Management Skills
  • Teaching Procedures and Techniques
  • Resources and Materials
  • Professional Development
  • Classroom Observation
  • Teaching Practice

Teaching practice: Teaching practice is an integral part of the course. This is organised in small groups of 5-6 trainees with volunteer students at two or three different levels. After each teaching practice session an evaluation of the session is led by a course tutor. Trainees are expected to liase within their groups outside course hours in order to plan teaching practice classes, according to guidelines provided by course tutors.
Course design Our courses are full-time over four weeks and have a minimum of 120 contact hours, plus a further 80 hours plus for required outside of classtime tasks, including assignments and lesson planning.

Assessment and certificates: 
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 Certificate and a Progress Report.

Any Missing Important Information

Can you give me advice on what visa I need?
International employment laws make it illegal to work in a country which does not have a reciprocal work agreement with your own. Any jobs available should go first to the native citizens of a country, and secondly to the citizens of other countries with a reciprocal agreement in place, and only thirdly to citizens of non-reciprocating countries, if they can be proved to be the best or only person who can do that job. The consequences of this is that, with very few exceptions, it is unlikely that a non-reciprocating country will give you a work permit or work visa, no matter how good a teacher you are. The best place to get advice on the official situation is from the Embassy or Consulate of the country you are interested in. Unofficially, however, in virtually every country in the world, there are teachers teaching without official work permits. The best way to get advice about the unofficial situation is from the employers themselves, so if you send a question to Cactus about a specific location, we can have an answer for you from our contacts within 72 hours. We are sorry but Cactus cannot help you with the visa process.
