Entry requirements

You’ll need to have done, or be currently studying, A-levels or equivalent and your English must be to C2 level.  If you do not have the required qualifications, we may still offer you a place on the course if we feel you would be suitable.

What will the course cover?

The course will run over a weekend and will give you a wide range of information about teaching in EFL.  It will focus on the main teaching techniques, teaching pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and all the skills; lesson planning and much more.  There will also be practical tips and advice on classroom management and teaching different levels and age groups. 

In addition, you will also be offered a chance to observe one of our experienced teachers teaching an EFL class plus the chance to join in our popular conversation club which we run for our students.

Feedback for our CELTA Introductory course

"I must say that everything was perfect.  I found the course really interesting; the materials were useful, and the teacher, Jess, was very well organised and she did a great job. I learnt how to organise my classes, got new ideas for games and vocabulary, and for how to plan a lesson. I also loved the city; I felt very comfortable and I am very happy to have come. "
