Cambridge CELTA Online (TEFL). Part-time online course with face-to-face teaching practice.
This is a first stage part-time programme which lasts 17 weeks part time to enable students to teach English as a Foreign Language. It is internationally recognised and validated by the University of Cambridge local examinations syndicate.
“Students make good progress as a result of engaging and well-designed teaching, learning and assessment.”(Ofsted, 2016)
The course is essentially practical; all input, written work and teaching practice is focused on the needs of the teacher in the classroom. Students must complete a minimum of six hours teaching practice and six hours observation of EFL lecturers in the classroom. Small groups of students are assigned to an experienced lecturer and regular teaching practice classes.
The aim of the course is to develop:
- practical awareness of the learners (their needs, motivation and difficulties)
- language (grammar, phonology, functions and meaning)
- materials (course, reference and resource books and authentic material)
- practical ability in classroom management and lesson planning, introduction and practice of a new language, development of skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Gloucestershire College is a member of English UK, UKCOSA and is accredited by the British Council.
The course consists of 30 online units which are completed throughout the course. Each unit will take approximately 1.5 – 2 hours to work though and candidates will need to participate in an online discussion after completing each unit. The course also includes 4 written assignments, which are spread throughout the course.
Teaching practice will be at the Cheltenham campus on Thursday evenings from 5.30pm to 9.00pm.
