What is the CELTA Course?

The Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Speakers of Other languages (CELTA) course will help you develop the skills needed to teach English as a foreign language.

The CELTA qualification is awarded by Cambridge English which is part of Cambridge University. CELTA is the most widely recognised TEFL qualification in the world.


You can gain this qualification through NILE at ESE, Malta as a mixed-mode course. This blended course provides the opportunity to study online as well as teach students from all over the world face-to-face. As a trainee, you will have full access to NILE’s resources and tutoring support. You will work in a professional setting with your colleagues as well as your CELTA tutors.

During the input sessions you will explore how the English language works as well as learn about teaching methodologies.


There will also be teaching practice, where you will experiment with and exploit what you have been exposed to during the input sessions. After each teaching practice session, you will receive detailed feedback on your performance and lesson planning. You will also have the opportunity to reflect and comment on your classroom experience through the observation of experienced teachers.


There is no final assessment, as candidates are assessed continuously throughout the course through your written assignments as well as the teaching practices. An external assessor is appointed by Cambridge to moderate the course. Completion of the course does not guarantee the award of the CELTA certificate. Receiving the Certificate necessitates pass marks in both the written assignments and the teaching practices. There are three pass grades: Pass A, Pass B and Pass.
