The CELTA course is designed in accordance with the requirements and recommendations of Cambridge Assessment English, the world leader in providing teaching qualifications from University of Cambridge.

And in the light of the ongoing adaptation of Ukrainian professional training programs for foreign language teachers to European educational standards, obtaining the CELTA certificate can be included into compulsory hours of professional development which usually takes place during scheduled courses at the Institute of Graduate Pedagogical Studies.

CELTA Course Program

Course techniques

The course is aimed at developing such spheres of pedagogical experience as:

  • Effective teaching principles
  • Practical experience of English language teaching to adults
  • Using the acquired experience in one’s own teaching context

The course covers 5 key topics:

  • 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

Assessment

Your performance will be assessed throughout the whole course. There is no final examination. Each CELTA course is delivered by experienced CELTA tutors, authorised by Cambridge Assessment English, and the final grade for the course is confirmed by the external assessor from Cambridge. There are two types of assessment: teaching practice and written assignments. In order to obtain the CELTA certificate, it is necessary to be assessed on both. Certificates are issued to candidates who meet all the criteria and requirements of the course, and submit their written assignments portfolio. The results are confirmed as grades: Pass, Pass B or Pass A.

Teaching practice

Overall, you will need to teach for six hours and work with groups of students who have two different levels of English. Each delivered lesson as well as your overall performance throughout these six hours are assessed.

Written assignments

Candidates complete 4 written assignments focusing on the following topics:

  • Analysing and responding to learner needs
