WHY CELTA?

  • The most internationally recognized English Language Teaching certificate in the world.
  • Quality control – the highest standards assured by Cambridge English Language Assessment.

 

  • It’s a fusion of theory and practice – combines practical approach to methodology and extensive supervised teaching practice. In order to find out more about the course, please see CELTA Syllabus and Assessment Guidelines (the button below).

WHO IS IT FOR?

    • Everyone! It was originally intended as an introductory course for people with little or no previous English language teaching experience or training. However, its unique blend of theory and practice, especially the teaching practice component, make it ideal for the novice and the expert alike. Whether you are looking to brush up on your skills, reinvigorate your career or start a new chapter, the CELTA is for you!
    • It will give you the skills and confidence to teach English to adults whether you’re a recent graduate or looking for a career change or a seasoned professional.

Milada Krajewska | Main Course Tutor & Assistant Course Tutor | Head of CELTA @ Lang

Milada works as the Academic Development Manager for the Lang Teacher Training Centre in Warsaw (ODN Lang), designing and organising professional development events for teachers of English and other languages. When she did her CELTA, she had been teaching for 17 years, and what she loved about her CELTA adventure was the way she was constantly challenged to develop her teaching skills despite years of experience in teaching, training and writing ELT coursebooks. A real eye-opener. As a CELTA trainer, Milada loves to observe how trainees spread their lesson-planning-and-running wings, how they turn into acute observers of their friends’ lessons and how much they benefit from giving and getting constructive feedback. Designing feedback and input sessions is the second best part of the CELTA tutoring experience for Milada.

 

Aeddan Shaw | Main Course Tutor & Assistant Course Tutor

Aeddan is a teacher, CELTA trainer and assessor who has been based in Krakow for over 10 years. A graduate in philosophy and applied linguistics, he takes great delight in learning first hand that most second language acquisition theories are wrong, thanks to his two small sons. With the experience of delivering and assessing CELTA courses in both Europe and North America, Aeddan is particularly interested in the issues of teaching large, multilevel classes and with minimal resources.
As he is rather too fond of saying that he doesn’t have any hobbies, he has children.

 

 

Amanda Davies | Main Course Tutor & Assistant Course Tutor

Amanda has worked as a teacher, teacher trainer and academic manager in the UK, Russia, Spain, Lebanon and Poland. She has worked with every level and age group but her passion lies in teaching young learners. She regularly presents at conferences on topics such as inclusive teaching and visible learning. More recently she has been training Lebanese teachers in Beirut to enhance the experience of the Syrian refugee children currently living there. Amanda has written numerous articles and is an author of ELT materials. She loves mountain sports so happily calls Poland home.

 

Alex Tilbury | Assistant Course Tutor

Alex lives in Katowice, Poland. When he’s not busy on face-to-face CELTA and DELTA courses he works as a teacher, consultant, book reviewer, inspector,  assessor, online tutor, and author of learner and teacher training materials. He wrote the International House Language Awareness Course and was part of the author team for the English Unlimited coursebook series, published by CUP. He was born and grew up in England and studied at the University of York before coming to Poland in 1997, spending eight years working for an IH school, and then going freelance. He’s also worked in India, Germany, Romania, the  Czech Republic, and South Africa. In his free time, he enjoys books, cooking, crosswords, and red wine.

 

Sandy Millin | Assistant Course Tutor

Sandy is an experienced CELTA tutor, teacher trainer and teacher who has worked in Borneo, Paraguay, Czech Republic, Crimea, United States, Canada,  Thailand, Spain and the UK. She is currently working as the Director of Studies at International House Bydgoszcz and as a part-time CELTA tutor in Warsaw.  She is passionate about teaching and is constantly trying to develop professionally. When she’s not teaching, she’s normally reading blogs, working on her languages and taking far too many photos of the interesting places she visits.

 

Adrian Post | Assistant Course Tutor

Adrian has been a CELTA trainer since 2010 and has worked on many CELTA courses in Poland, the UK and Iran for a number of respected schools and institutions. He brings considerable teaching experience to the course, having worked with adult learners of all levels and ages, teaching General and Business English, Exam Preparation and ESP. He has also been a school director, written teaching materials and delivered lectures and workshops for educational publishers. He now teaches in-company and is studying for an MA in Educational Management at the University of Bath, UK.
When he’s not doing this, he tries hard to fulfill his role as an ‘old dad’ and to find time to keep up with world news – perhaps because he can’t travel as often and as far as he’d like to…
