CELTA

Gain a CELTA teaching qualification at Live Language in Glasgow

The Cambridge CELTA qualification is the industry standard for those teaching English as a foreign language to adults. It is internationally recognised and could be your passport to a career abroad. The CELTA course is ideal for those who love travel, learning about new cultures and who want to embrace the challenge of teaching. The CELTA at Live Language is a course and can open doors, which short, weekend TEFL courses can’t. All our teachers have the CELTA qualification as a minimum, and we’ve worked in countries such as Japan, Korea, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Italy, Vietnam, China and France to name a few!

We have 3 course options – a 4-week intensive, and 10-week or 15-week blended online options. In the 10-week blended option, you will complete 8 weeks online and come to Live Language in Glasgow for 2 full weeks for the teaching practice component of the course. In the 15-week blended option, you will complete all weeks online and come to Live Language in Glasgow for 10 Saturdays for teaching practice. Whether face-to-face or online, your course tutors will guide you through input sessions, teaching practice, observations and assessments. You will learn teaching methodologies, build your awareness of language, and develop your teaching skills.
