Input

 

Input sessions follow the timetable provided here but may be adapted to a particular time of year or local circumstances. Input will preceed Assessment and TP requirements and a certain amount of self study is expected beyond input in order to consolidate knowledge.

 

Input is about one third of the course time and there will be tutors for you to resort to 100% of the course time.

Assessment

 

The assessment consists of a variety of elements, your portfolio will include your feedback, your self-reflection, your plans but there are two formal elements: The TPs and the 4 written tasks:

  • Focus on the Learner
  • Skills Related Tasks
  • Language Related Tasks
  • Lessons from the Classroom

Assignments are meant to be practical but should reflect a lot of background reading, so should TPs and both can be resubmitted and tutors will help you in the drafitng stage and you will get support throughout.

Teaching Practice

 

In the CELTA Programme you are required to teach a total of 6 hours and to observe other teachers/ tutors/ trainees. In Expert, we provide with this in 8 45-minute sessions.

 

You will be able to teach two different levels Pre-intermediate A2/ A2+ and Upper Intermediate B2/ B2+

 

For every lesson you will have Guided Lesson Planning with an experienced tutor and the support of your peers and Intensive Feedback to gorw and learn from will be given after each lesson you teach.
