If you’re looking to embark on an enriching journey to enhance your teaching skills and gain a globally recognized qualification, you’ve come to the right place. As trusted leaders in the industry, we offer exceptional CELTA courses in Toronto and CELTA course in London.

CELTA, which stands for Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, is a renowned qualification provided by the University of Cambridge Teaching English as a second language is a noble profession that requires skilled and dedicated educators. The industry needs teachers and for those with CELTA jobs are easy to find.

CELTA is a standardised teacher training programme designed for individuals with little or no prior teaching experience and it equips candidates with the essential tools and techniques to teach English effectively to non-native speakers. The programme is accredited and recognised globally, rendering it highly valuable in the ESL (English as a Second Language) job market.

The CELTA course is run at EC London and EC Toronto and is intensive and typically spans over four weeks, although there are also part-time options available. It combines theoretical input sessions with practical teaching practice, giving trainees the opportunity to apply the newly acquired knowledge in real classroom settings. Trainees will be evaluated based on their teaching performance and written assignments, ensuring they demonstrate competence in key teaching skills and language analysis.

Who teaches CELTA?

CELTA trainers are highly qualified and experienced educators who have undergone rigorous training themselves to become authorized by Cambridge to deliver the course. Their expertise and guidance are invaluable in shaping aspiring teachers into confident and effective English language educators.

Focus on Practical Teaching Experience

One of the highlights of the CELTA programme is the emphasis on hands-on teaching experience. Trainees are required to teach English to non-native English speakers during the course, allowing them to practice their newly acquired teaching methodologies and receive feedback from experienced trainers. This practical approach enhances trainees’ teaching abilities and builds their confidence in managing a diverse range of language learners.

The Four Essential Components

The CELTA programme encompasses four core components, each contributing to a comprehensive learning experience:

1. Language Analysis: Trainees delve into the mechanics of the English language, exploring grammar, phonology, and lexis. Understanding the structure of the language is crucial for effectively teaching it to others.

2. Methodology: This component introduces various teaching approaches and techniques, equipping trainees with the knowledge to plan and execute engaging and effective lessons.

3. Teaching Practice: As previously mentioned, trainees will have the chance to teach actual English classes to non-native speakers, gaining valuable hands-on experience in the process.

4. Reflective Practice: After each teaching session, trainees engage in reflection and feedback sessions. This self-assessment allows them to identify areas of improvement and further enhance their teaching strategies.

This training reflects how we teach across all our centres; we call it The Communicative Approach – The EC Way. Every lesson is approached using this methodology, because we recognise how important it is for our students to see progress in every day. We teach them to learn, not just teach a language. So take your CELTA and come and work in one of our award winning schools in the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Malta or South Africa.
