Teacher Training - The CELTA​




What is CELTA? 
It gives you a qualification for entry into the field of EFL teaching to adults internationally. The acronym stands for Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. It is validated by the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate who set the guidelines and criteria for centres running these courses.


How long does the course take? 
The full time course is a minimum of 120 contact hours and runs over four weeks. You attend the school from 09.00 to 17.00 and then spend most evenings preparing lessons for the following day. Cambridge recommends that a minimum of 60 additional learning hours for reading, research, assignment writing and lesson preparation is required on a course. This would average out to about 15 hours a week on top of contact hours.

Our part time course runs over 12 weeks and covers a minimum of 120 contact hours. The contact times are Saturday mornings from 10.00 to 13.15 and Monday and Wednesday evenings 18.00 to 21.00.


Can I enrol?
Yes, if you are at least 18 years old at the start of the course. It is generally recommended that you are aged 20 and over though. You should also have a standard of education that would allow entry to Higher Education in your country. You should have an awareness of language and a competence in English, both written and spoken, that enables you to follow the course and complete the assignments set throughout the course. Non-native speaker applicants need proof of a C1/C2 level of English.


Do I need to have previous teaching experience?
No. The CELTA course is designed as a pre-service course for people with no previous teaching experience. It is also a popular course with those who have a PGCE and experience in the state sector but who are looking for a change of direction.


What are the course contents?
Input sessions are devoted to methodology, language awareness, phonology and lesson preparation. It is a Cambridge requirement that you observe 6 hours of classes with qualified teachers (3 are of live teaching and 3 can be of videos) and have a minimum of 6 hours observed teaching practice. On our full time courses here, teaching practice normally takes place in the afternoons and by the end of the course you will have taught two or three levels of classes.


Where do the teaching practice students come from?
The community. Many of them are working in Edinburgh, i.e. in bars, restaurants or are au pairs, and they pay a registration fee to attend these classes taught by you and observed by tutors.


Is there an examination at the end?
No. You are assessed on 2 components: your teaching practice and written assignments. Cambridge has a set of criteria for each component that you must meet to get the certificate. Towards the end of the course an external assessor comes in to moderate the course and to ensure that assessment is carried out consistently. You will have at least two tutorials during which you will be given an indication of your progress to date. Useful information about the course can be found at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CELTA


How much is the course?
£990 (inclusive of the Cambridge fee).


Why choose this centre?

We have Scotland's most experienced CELTA tutors. All of us are assessors and Valerie Reynolds was a Joint Chief Assessor for the scheme for 15 years.  We are also competitively priced for the north!

Further Development Courses for English Language Teachers​




Why choose a further development course at CES?

CES Dublin is a training centre for English language teaching. We have delivered the CELT (Certificate of English Language Teaching) since its inception. This teaching certificate is recognised by the Irish Department of Education and is one of the principal employment requirements in the private English language sector both here in Ireland and abroad. We have also been very involved in developing and delivering further development courses through the Comenius, Grundtvig, CIEP and Saxony-Anhalt programmes.

Courses at CES are eligible for Erasmus+ funding under Key Action 1.


We offer both one week and two week courses. Our courses are:

  • Methodology and Language Development (1and 2 week courses)

  • Language Development for Teachers (1 and 2 week courses)

  • Blended learning (1 week and 2 week courses)

  • CLIL – Content and Language Integrated Learning (1 and 2 week courses)


Course Objectives:

Our courses are intended for English language teachers or teachers of other subjects who wish to refresh and expand their language skills and/or analyse, discuss and practise different teaching approaches and methods. The courses provide opportunities for discussion and the sharing of ideas with colleagues from different European countries. Our sessions are practical rather than theoretical and involve a variety of workshop and communicative formats.

We take a dynamic approach to both the methodology components and the language development components of our courses. We deliver our sessions through an eclectic mix of active lesson type classes and workshops. Our aim being that the participants can take everything they do in the sessions and apply it to their own learners and classrooms. We also focus on the use of grammar and vocabulary in context through a variety of ways, such as pair work, group work, class activities etc. We provide all the course material. The participants should have a vast supply of new material taken from various ELT books, authentic material and their colleagues when returning home.


Our E-learning Platform

As a course participant you will be able to partake in our guided e-learning system from the time you have booked the course until three months after course completion. Our guided e-learning system complements the teaching and learning experience. You will have access to it as a student and/or as a teacher so that you can benefit from it for your own language development and also see it from the teacher’s point of view and how something like this might benefit your learners at home. Our e-learning platform also feeds into Europass as our one-to-one tutorials are centred on the CEFR framework of reference.


Pre Course Preparation

All potential participants will be sent a needs analysis questionnaire before the course begins. This will help us in determining the individual needs of each participant. Upon course registration participants will also be sent some pre course activities through our guided e-learning portal.


Course Follow Up

Upon completion of the course the learners will have been supplied with further suggested reading material and useful websites. They will be encouraged to stay in contact with the trainers and their peers. Peer networking will be strongly encouraged. At the end of the course the participants will be encouraged to give a mini presentation on materials development and to self-evaluate their input. This we hope will help in the self-evaluation of lessons taught once the participant has returned home. Each participant will be given a password to our e-learning platform when they commence the course. This password will be valid for a further 3 months after they the course has finished. They will therefore also be encouraged to continue using our e-learning programme.
