Why the Cambridge CELTA?

The Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching (CELTA) is the most widely recognised pre-service ELT qualification in Australia and throughout the world. The CELTA is the most well known and recognised TESOL certificate and the vast majority of employers in this industry ask for a CELTA certificate.  It is externally validated and overseen by Cambridge University.

If you wish to gain further qualifications and develop a career in ESL, the CELTA is a pathway to the Masters in TESOL at the University of Melbourne or the Cambridge DELTA course.

We all know that the world has changed since early 2020.  CELTA has changed too and is now approved by Cambridge to be undertaken completely online.  The online CELTA can be taken from anywhere in the world and engages participants in a practical hands-on experience dealing with real students online. Future employment of teachers will definitely require the ability to teach online.

At MTI we use Zoom as the platform and provide support and guidance in how to use this technology, alongside the training in English language teaching.

The online CELTA is popular with trainees as they can attend the course from all over Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Indonesia and even South Africa.

CELTA provides training for people with little or no previous experience, as well as development for teachers with a lot of experience.  The focus is on the practical skills and through live classes with real students, participants develop competence in communicative language teaching as well as an understanding of current teaching methodologies.The course aims to increase candidates’ language awareness and knowledge of how English works.

Candidates must:

  • Be at least 20 years of age (applicants over 18 may be interviewed in exceptional cases).
  • Have a good educational background (preferably of university entrance standard).
  • Have an excellent command of written and spoken English.

At MTI we run 10 week part-time, online CELTA courses. We also fun a 10 week face-face or mixed-mode CELTA twice per year.

Contact us to know more about the next part-time online course that runs for 10 weeks. Teaching practice is on Tuesday and Thursday evenings or Monday and Wednesday evenings, or a CELTA with teaching practice on Saturday afternoons.

The course is divided into:

Language Analysis

  • Develop an ability to analyse language in terms of meaning, form, sound and usage



  • Different approaches to language teaching;
  • Techniques for presentation and practice of new language;
  • Classroom management;
  • Lesson-planning;
  • Use of commercially produced and authentic materials;
  • Developing listening, reading and writing skills.

Teaching Practice

  • Each trainee is required to complete a minimum of 6 hours assessed teaching practice with classes of adult learners.

Observation of Experienced Teachers

  • CELTA trainees observe their tutors teaching online and also filmed lessons through the online Cambridge platform.

Assessment is continuous and is based on:

  • Performance in Teaching Practice;
  • An ability to evaluate one’s own lessons;
  • The quality and accuracy of written assignments;
  • Lesson plans;
  • Punctuality and participation in all aspects of the course  attendance, which is expected to be 100%.

It is possible to pass the course at three levels:

  • Pass A
  • Pass B
  • Pass 

The final grades are awarded by the tutors and ratified by the visiting assessor after the course.

Certificates are awarded by Cambridge University and contain the centre number and grade. The CELTA certificate is the same for both face-face training and online training.

In addition, each candidate receives an official results letter immediately after completion of the course, which is recognised for employment.  A final report from Melbourne Training International is issued with the CELTA certificate.
