CELTA Preparation

The University of Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) is an important step on your path to starting an English language teaching career either in Canada or abroad. At Global Village Vancouver we have the expertise to help you reach your goals.

Choose us to help you succeed because:

  • We are experienced. Our trainers have many years of experience; both separately and as part of a team. Brad has a DELTA, has been training since 2005 and has worked as a trainer and centre manager in both Vietnam and Canada. Lisa has a DELTA and a Masters in Applied Linguistics and TESOL and has been training since 2008. Lisa and Brad understand that, while there is no question that the CELTA is an intense experience, it is also a very rewarding one. They have the experience to provide the support YOU need to take on your teaching practicum. They will help you succeed!

  • We have two full time options. Your time is important and for this reason most CELTA candidates prefer the 4 week full time course. With this option you start your input and practicum on the same day. We have also created a 5 week option where you will do one week of input before starting your practicum. This will alleviate some of the challenge associated with the 4 week course.

  • Our classes are small. Most of our CELTAs run with 8 or fewer candidates. That means a candidate to trainer ratio of 4 to 1. Cambridge regulations dictate that there can be no more than 6 candidates per trainer.

  • We offer continued job support after the course. While our program includes a number of work related sessions at the end of the course, our support does not at the end of the course. We run a closed Facebook group where graduates can network and we can easily attach job postings sent directly to us. Lisa and Brad are also happy to act as references and offer advice as you begin your job search.

  • You have access to extensive professional materials. We offer both the CELTA and DELTA and have the extensive library to support both courses and candidates will not need to waste time trying to use a library outside the school. Our training centre can be accessed from 7:30am to 8pm Monday to Friday and includes a computer lab, photocopier and any teaching aids you might need to plan your lessons. Each classroom contains a computer and document camera.

  • We are convenient to access. Our beautiful Yaletown campus is easily accessible from Roundhouse Community Centre Canada Line and Stadium Skytrain. Convenient restaurants and coffee shops are all around.

  • We are a full-service school. Global Village is a community. You will experience the buzz and joy of international students studying abroad. You will observe dynamic classes taking place. CELTA candidates can take advantage of the amazing range of activities, homestay, immigration services and much much more.
