About the CELTA course
The CELTA course at MCSE trains you in all aspects of teaching, combining 120 hours of contact time with over 80 hours of individual learning. In particular, the course comprises the following core elements:
Trainees participate in task-based workshops, lectures and practical activities focusing on learner awareness, language analysis, phonology, methodology, and career development.
Trainees teach classes of overseas students and gain genuine experience of the teaching and learning process. Tutors provide help with lesson preparation, and by the end of the course trainees will have taught at two levels and have completed a total of 6 hours of teaching (in compliance with Cambridge guidelines).
While there is no examination, assessment is continuous and is carried out by the course tutors, with a visit from a Cambridge assessor who ensures that tutors work consistently and in accordance with guidelines.
