Cambridge CELTA Course

Course Code: CELTA4

CELTA Teacher Training Course

Prepare the Cambridge CELTA exam in Ireland


CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is an initial teaching qualification awarded by Cambridge Assessment English, part of the University of Cambridge. It is one of the most widely taken and recognised ELT qualifications in the world, with over 300 centres in more than 60 countries. It is often a pre-requisite to gaining employment in the industry.

* Online courses run for 5 weeks


CELTA is intended for a range of candidates, including primarily:

  • Candidates who are entirely new to teaching
  • Candidates who have taught languages but with little or no previous training
  • Candidates who have taught other subjects and wish to take up language teaching


You will cover five main topics as part of your CELTA course:

  • Learners and teachers, and the teaching and learning context
  • Language analysis and awareness
  • Language skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing
  • Planning and resources for different contexts
  • Developing teaching skills and professionalism.


In order to satisfy the requirements of the course, you will need to do the following:

  • Complete 6 hours of assessed teaching, working with classes at two ability levels
  • Complete all the assignments and pass at least three of them
  • Undertake 6 hours of observation of ELT professionals teaching
  • Maintain and submit your portfolio (evidence that you have done the above)
  • The CELTA is awarded in one of three categories: Pass A, Pass B, Pass.


100% attendance on the course is required. Candidates should be aware that participation involves more than simply attending the course. Lesson plans and assignments need to be written and candidates should be prepared to devote time in the evenings and at weekends to keep up with coursework.


Your tutors will be very experienced teachers who will have done CELTA (or equivalent) at some point in the past, obtained further qualifications in the field (such as DELTA, MA, etc.) and have been specifically trained to deliver the course and approved to do so by Cambridge Assessment.


  • Intensive Full-time ONLINE: Monday – Friday 09:00 – 17:00

Applicants must: 

  • Be at least 18 years of age**
  • Have an awareness of language and a competence in both written and spoken English (recommended C2 or high C1 on the CEFR.)
