In view of the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects on daily life and education, we are unable to offer new dates for in-person courses in Athens for the foreseeable future. Although Athens is no longer in lockdown mode, social distancing restrictions have resulted in difficulties finding students for the CELTA ie Delta teaching assessments. Without students, there can be no CELTA or Delta as teaching practices and assessments are the heart of these courses, and where our trainees learn the most and the best!
Luckily for many candidates, Cambridge has risen to the occasion and has allowed us to offer fully online courses for the duration of the pandemic.
As a centre, we have responded to the current situation and with Cambridge permission, we have introduced the following changes:
- Transitioning of all CELTA courses to a fully online mode of delivery
- CELTA trainees will be teaching their students online instead of teaching at CELT in Athens
- We provide multicultural and multilingual classes of adults learners for our trainees’ online Teaching Practices
- We offer our candidates a Teaching Languages Online short preparation course to help them deal with the technical aspects of online instruction
Cambridge has now extended their initial deadline which has been moved to the end of this year, so all courses that start this year and until the end of December will be delivered fully online. If interested in obtaining your CELTA qualification by attending such and teaching online, please visit the dedicated page by clicking here. We have new semi-intensive and part-time fully online courses starting in July and September.
Candidates who would never be able to travel to Europe for any reason, may be able to benefit from this unique opportunity but many also see this as an opportunity to acquire a necessary 21st century skill.
Cambridge Delta online Modules Announcement
Module 2 candidates registered to attend our 6-week course this summer may have to complete some or all the seminar input online in June. We remain uncertain as to whether travel to Europe will be possible as early as June but so far, many of our candidates who come from outside Greece are finding it difficult to travel, to get visas or be sure of being able to return to their home country after the course ends.
We know that many of you who opt for the summer intensive have a good reason – first because of the personal contact and, second, because the course is in the summer when you are not working.
Please consider following a blended course with online webinars, tutorials and workshops and face–to-face teaching when the situation permits you to travel to Athens and be safe.
We would like to start this course soon and for this reason we encourage you to check out decimated course page to check out our new dates and options here
