Melbourne - CELTA Schedule

Hosted by Holmes Colleges, Teaching House Melbourne holds a 4-week intensive teacher training course which consists of over 120 contact hours; the time is divided between theory in the form of Input Sessions on both Methodology (how to teach) and Language Analysis (what to teach) and guided teaching practice and observation.  By the end of a CELTA, each participant will have had 6 hours of supported teaching practice at two different levels, at least 6 hours of observation of experienced teachers and 30+ hours of peer observation.

The assessment of the 6 hours of teaching practice is ongoing and aims to bring every participant up to a certain standard of lesson preparation and teaching; where this is lacking on a course, no employer can assess a job applicant’s teaching performance – with a CELTA graduate it is very clear.

Teaching House Melbourne runs full time courses 9.30 am – 5.00 pm Monday to Friday, and a part-time option with online input during the week, and teaching practice over 14 Saturdays 9-530pm. The total cost for both formats is 2,900 AUD, inclusive of your Cambridge Exam Fee and a non-refundable 250 AUD enrolment deposit.
