CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) in the most internationally recognised initial TEFL qualification and could be your passport to a career teaching English as a foreign language at home or abroad.
The CELTA qualification is ideal for those who love travelling and learning about new cultures, and who want to embrace the challenge of teaching. And if you want to start your TEFL career by discovering Puglia, one of Italy’s most captivating regions, then why not sign up to our blended learning CELTA.
Unlike the standard 4-week intensive CELTA course, the blended learning option allows you to combine 9 weeks of part-time online training with 2 weeks of in-house teaching practice here in Maglie. The input sessions are carried out online, working through multimedia materials, doing interactive tasks, discussing topics with other course participants and your tutor in forums and collaborating with other course participants in a virtual classroom (6 of these dispersed throughout the 11 week course). While the two week intensive teaching practice sessions take place in our school in Maglie, offering you invaluable hands-on experience in the classroom.
Whether face-to-face or online, our highly-qualified course tutors will guide you through input sessions, teaching practice, observations and assessments. You will learn about different teaching methodologies, build your awareness of language, and develop your teaching skills. The course follows the same syllabus as the face-to-face CELTA and leads to the same internationally recognised qualification.
