CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)
Intensive (4 weeks) and part-time (4 months), as well online (blended) options for CELTA, probably the most widely recognised initial qualification within the ELT profession.
CELTA... one of the most enriching experiences I have had in my life. Rae
A major step up from CELTA, DELTA is designed for people who have several years' experience of teaching English...
We offer part-time (October-March), full-time (July and August) and blended learning (March-September) options for Modules 1 and 2, as well as a course specifically for Module 3.
March 4–September 28, 2019
July 1–August 23, 2019
October 1, 2019–March 24, 2020
January 11th–May 17, 2019
That's the difference between CELTA and DELTA: on DELTA courses, teaching is what people do, that's what they're good at, and they just want to get better. Emma
Our 8-session teacher development workshop series offers highly practical workshops for teachers of adult learners of English.
We also run a similarly practical 8 workshop series for teachers of Young Learners of English.
The two Friday morning workshop series are designed to create coherent teacher development courses, with a certificate awarded at the end of the course.
You can, however, come only to your own selection of the sessions that most interest you.
For further details of the session, see the workshop pages.
Information on the 2019-20 sessions will be available in September.
The two series, again with one for those teaching young learners, the second for those teaching adults, will begin in November 2019.
