The Cambridge CELTA delivers courses to enable students to teach English to adults. The course usually involves input sessions, lesson planning and research, teaching practice on classes of adult students, feedback, observation of experienced teachers, and assignments. This course is quite intensive and requiring active students’ individual work.
Most people who do a CELTA course are:
• planning on teaching during their overseas travels;
• looking for a new career;
• teaching but don’t have a formal qualification;
• looking for professional development.
There are five main units of learning:
• Learners and teachers, and the teaching and learning context;
• Language analysis and awareness;
• Language skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing;
• Planning and resources for different contexts;
• Developing teaching skills and professionalism.
Throughout the entire course students are assessed. There is no final examination. An external assessor, appointed by Cambridge ESOL, moderates each course. Assessment consists of two main components:
1. Teaching practice
2. Written assignments

Help for Jobs
Unfortunately, the school doesn't have official placement service. But it offers some part time teaching work to successful graduates. This work consists in teaching monolingual study groups. This work will give them another teaching experience so needed to be a professional English teacher.
During the course students receive 1-2 sessions devoted to professional development and looking for work strategy. So, students will get the basics about the industry in New Zealand and know how they can start a career in other countries. The training centre has connections with language centers in other countries and they are regularly approached by both local and global employers wanting to recruit successful candidates.
