Brussels/Belgium

13 face-to-face sessionsThese face-to-face sessions will involve coming to LTTB Brussels for 13 days excluding weekends during the 16-week duration of the course.

Treviso/Italy

The University of Cambridge requires candidates on all CELTA courses, whether online or face-to-face, to teach for a total of six hours during the course. This teaching is observed and assessed by course tutors and is divided into 8 separate teaching slots for each candidate, requiring attendance at the school on the fourteen occasions mentioned above.


The online component

Candidates should be prepared to spend a minimum of five hours a week online to work on interactive tasks, participate in guided video observation and forum discussion.

There will also be online tutorials with the main course tutor.

All input is delivered online and can be completed in the candidate's own time within deadlines set by the course tutor. The online materials are available to each candidate throughout the course, enabling easy self-study and revision.

Assessment

Please note that the online CELTA is assessed and moderated according to the same criteria as fully face-to-face courses and leads to exactly the same qualification.
