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. Following Cambridge guidelines
1/ Cambridge CELTA Fully Online Part Time or Full Time
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 summer of 2021, so all courses that start until then, will be delivered fully online.
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, teaching online which seems to be the new normal!

2/ Cambridge Delta Fully Online including Module 2 Assessments
Hot off the Cambridge Press!
COVID-19: Temporary adjustments to DELTA Module Two
To enable access to DELTA Module Two courses for candidates during COVID-19 lockdowns, we have introduced this important though temporary change:
assessed teaching practice on DELTA Module Two can take place in an online teaching environment, or via remote assessment.
This applies to both internal and external assessments which can take place either in an online classroom space such as Zoom, or in an offline classroom which can be live-streamed and at the same time recorded for the benefit of tutors and Cambridge moderation.
This does not exclude the possibility of face-to-face observation if the local conditions change and it is possible to bring in students to your offline class in Athens.
Free Teaching Languages Online Course
Our centre provides free support courses for teaching languages online. Many colleagues have transitioned to remote teaching out of necessity, but it’s one thing to be teaching one-to-one classes online and another to be teaching a class with an assessor present.
Many teachers have expressed the benefits of following our course. Find out more here.
