The part-time CELTA course, with frequency two evenings a week and some Saturdays, is the ideal solution if you have weekday commitments, e.g. studying or working. The course length is 12 weeks. Contact time per week is6 hours a week (two days from 18.30 to 21.30) and some Saturdays (from 9.30 to 16.30).
The part-time course is less intensive than the full-time one, but it is equally demanding. You will be expected to spend time outside the course hours on preparation, assignment writing and revision.

This course consists of online activities and face to face sessions at our school in Milan. The face to face sessions might take place one day a week or in a two week slot, when candidates attend sessions every day for a period of 10 days.
Candidates are required to teach a total of 6 hours during the course. This supervised teaching practice requires the candidates’ attendance at the school. It is followed by face-to-face feedback and reflection.
In their own time, candidates can complete the online component of the course, which is accessible at any time.
The online part of the course is assessed and externally moderated according to the same criteria as face-to-face courses and leads to exactly the same qualification.
The blended CELTA course is identical to all the other CELTA courses: full time, part time or extensive courses (this includes the price). The only differences are the timetable, course format and delivery.
The online component
The online component consists of online and interactive material based on the course syllabus. Forum and ‘live room’ (virtual real-time classroom) tasks are integrated throughout the course. You work independently or collaboratively with the other trainees on these tasks, with tutor support, evaluation and comment (www.cambridgeenglish.org). There will also be online tutorials with the main course tutor.
Note that, to take the online CELTA course, you do not need advanced computer skills: the ability to use email and the internet and have basic typing skills is all that is required.
