HOW TO APPLY FOR ENTRY TO THE CELTA COURSE:
The closing date for application to the CELTA course is 8 weeks before the course start date. Sometimes it may be possible to consider an application made less than 8 weeks before the course start date but please check that this is possible before you apply. The application procedure will usually take a minimum of 14 days to complete.
International students who want to join a Mixed Mode CELTA course will need to be able to obtain a visa which will allow them to study in the UK for two weeks. They will also need to prove that their English language level is CEFR C1 or above in order to be considered for entry to the course. Applicants below this level will need to improve their English before they can join the course.
BEFORE YOU SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION:
- Read the CELTA information pack, see details about the Celta at the Elh teacher training centre.
- See the CELTA dates and fees, the schedules and the different modes of delivery that are available.
- Make sure you read the CELTA Terms and Conditions and the Terms and Conditions for Online Courses before you submit your application.
THE CELTA INTERVIEW
If your application is successful, you will be asked to join one of our CELTA trainers for your CELTA interview. During the interview they will talk to you about the course you want to join and ask you to:
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOUR INTERVIEW?
After your interview you will be sent an email with either a conditional or an unconditional offer.
PAYMENT OF THE COURSE FEES:
You will need to pay the full course fees as indicated in your offer email in order to secure your place on the course.
Once payment has been made you will be given access to the CELTA pre course tasks, resources and material which can help you to prepare for the course. This can help you to familiarise yourself with the course requirements and the assessment criteria, work on your language awareness and observe some language lessons to see how it's done.
