CELTA ONLINE (blended)
Teaching Practice at the BRITISH COUNCIL MILAN.
16 OCTOBER 2017 to 31 MARCH 2018 (online access will begin Sat 7 Oct)
Two (or more) two fully-qualified and certified CELTA trainers offer highly personalised planning and teaching support and feedback to build your professional teaching skills. The Online Course Tutor (OCT) works online with the trainee group asynchonously and moderates the Discussion Forums and ClassLive (webinars) sessions and may also do the Tutorials. The OCT may also be one of the Teaching Practice trainers.
Blended Schedule :
Interlace asynchronous study, discussion forums and videos online with actual teaching practice and observations in person at the British Council Milan every Monday (10am - 3pm) and you have your Blended CELTA (officially called 'CELTA Online'). You can be “in class” 24/7 from anywhere where there’s a computer, an internet connection and a browser. Trainees have ongoing access to their platform for 365 days.
What do I learn?
Not only do you practice and develop effective teaching and planning skills in the CELTA syllabus, but on a blended course you also gain/improve the very 21st century skills needed for online learning. Many of our successful CELTA Online trainees later use online platforms to teach English and confirm their multi-media experience on the CELTA Online is what opened that particular professional door. Online is also how most teachers continue their professional development.
Tutors provide recommended final grades to an external Cambridge course assessor, who moderates each course. Each grade is based on continual assessment of your Teaching Practice (planning, teaching, reflecting) and the four written assignments. There is no final exam.
