CELTA in Athens


The face to face CELTA is offered as either a part-time course over 12-16 weeks or as an intensive full time course over 4 weeks. Face to face courses are suitable for people who live in or near Athens and for people who are able to come and spend at least four weeks in Athens. If you can’t come to Athens for more than two weeks, then you may want to consider the online CELTA instead.

Part time courses are offered at least twice during the academic year starting in October and January with sessions on three mornings per week (half-day sessions till 14.00) or once a week on Saturdays (all-day sessions). If you are currently in full time employment and live in or near Athens, the part-time CELTA, which allows you to complete the course at a more relaxed pace, may well be the best choice for you.

Full time courses are offered several times a year and last for four weeks (in February, May, June, July, August, September, November). These are intensive courses which require full commitment, as attendance is from 10:00 to 18:30 every day. This option is ideal for teachers who are prepared to work intensively for four weeks and complete all the CELTA assessment requirements within this period.
