For a great CELTA experience, one need look no further than Language Link. Thank you David, Robyn and Osman for your... unlimited guidance and support during the course. Even having taught ESL for over 5 years, I still feel like I've learnt a lot and therefore became a better teacher. I wholeheartedly recommend this school to any potential trainee out more

What an amazing school! It was what I had expected and more! I learnt so many techniques that I feel prepared for any... classroom here in London or anywhere in the world. Our tutors, Robyn and David, were both wonderful, always supporting us and teaching us everything we need to build a career in ESL teaching. Osman's administrative support was exquisite, always helping us with everything. The school itself is in a beautiful location, easily accessible. All in all, an amazing experience and excellent value for money. I would strongly recommend it to any aspiring ESL teacher who wants to make progress and build a successful more

£990 – 5 Weeks

plus Cambridge Assessment Fee (£156)

The qualification is of the same standing as CELTA courses delivered in other ways and the final certificate is the same.

The content is essentially the same as the face-to-face CELTA that we have very successfully offered for the past nineteen years and will focus on teaching skills for both online and face-to-face classrooms.

It will include the teaching of groups of volunteer students of English in an online environment, six hours in total.

You will also learn online teaching skills and Language Link will provide you with a Zoom Skills for Language Teaching certificate.

The CELTA course hours are fixed:

9.15 – 12.30 and 13.30 – 17.15 U.K. time

Monday – Friday

You will not be able to work from home, look after children or do home-schooling during these hours.

In addition, there will be additional study, lesson planning and assignments to complete outside course hours. You are advised not to undertake any other commitments during the five weeks of the course.

As everything is done online, in addition to the usual CELTA entry requirements you will need

  • a reliable internet connection
  • a desktop computer or laptop (a phone will not be sufficient)
  • a camera and microphone in the device you are using
  • a quiet, comfortable place where you can work uninterrupted during course hours.
  • the computer skills necessary to teach via Zoom.


£1380 – 13 Weeks

plus Cambridge Assessment Fee (£156)

The qualification has exactly the same standing as face to face and blended CELTA courses. The final certificate is entirely the same.

This part-time online CELTA course is intended to offer more flexibility to its students. It is an ideal option for those with work, family or other responsibilities but who are able to fit study around those commitments. It is also a great solution for students attending the course from different time zones.

The content is delivered in two different ways:

Input on methods of teaching and language analysis

This module is delivered online via the Cambridge Moodle and is essentially self-study, though there will be support from tutors. The hours are not fixed but you will need to complete up to ten hours per week and should plan to visit the platform regularly (e.g. five times a week).

Teaching practice

This will involve teaching groups of volunteer students of English via Zoom, a free online platform which the centre will set up for you. The first three weeks of the course will include training in using Zoom Pro.

Hours for teaching practice are fixed: Mondays and Wednesdays 6.15 pm – 9.30 pm. You will deliver one 45 min lesson per week over 8 weeks. Your first lesson will be in week 4.

There is also a plenary Q+A session on Fridays 6 pm – 7 pm to tie up loose ends.

In addition to input and teaching practice, there will be lesson planning and four assignments to complete. The course requires a substantial commitment of time and you are strongly advised not to undertake any other courses, activities or travel during the thirteen weeks of the CELTA. Expect to spend up to 3 hours preparing each of your 45min lessons.

In addition to the usual CELTA entry requirements you will need

  • a reliable internet connection
  • a desktop computer or laptop (a phone will not be sufficient)
  • a webcam (probably already installed in your laptop)
  • separate headphones/microphone (to avoid playback)
  • a quiet, comfortable place where you can work uninterrupted, especially during fixed course hours.
  • the computer skills necessary to handle Zoom, Moodle and Google Docs

Important: Applications will normally close one week before the start date to allow for setting up the Moodle system.
