The Certificate in English Language Teaching (CELT) is an initial course that aims to provide the necessary skills to teach English as a Foreign Language. The course is recognised by the Irish Department of Education (QQI-ACELS) and is subject to regular inspections.
The course has two components - the teaching practice and a portfolio. The final grade is reached through assessment of these two elements of the course.
Successful trainees will be awarded a grade of Approved, Approved Plus or Approved with Distinction, depending on grades achieved in both teaching practice and portfolio modules.
The CELT certificate will state the overall grade awarded as well as individual grades for the Teaching Practice and Portfolio components.
Candidates are regularly informed of their progress through oral and written feedback from trainers on the course.
