Our Courses

You can take the CELTA course in one of four ways. We offer:

  • Part-time courses (8 weeks) - Tuesday, Thursday evening and Saturday classes for teachers already working part-time.
  • Online courses (12 weeks) with flexible ‘Teaching Practice’ options for local or international candidates.

Who does the CELTA?

CELTA candidates are not required to have any previous teaching experience as the course provides you with the basic skills and techniques to become a confident teacher. Candidates with some previous teaching experience also benefit from taking the course as they refine their teaching skills and techniques, as well as gain an invaluable qualification for future employment. Candidates are required to be at least 18 years old with a high C1 or C2 level of spoken and written English. Applicants are also assessed on their potential to develop themselves through feedback and reflection. It is free to apply!

Gain Practical Experience
As British Side is a fully functioning language school, we offer CELTA candidates the unique opportunity to gain practical, unassessed and paid* teaching experience. You have the opportunity to run additional conversational classes or even our SAC events to help you build your classroom confidence and experience. Ask us how!
