Young Learner Extension to CELTA

We know how important it is for teachers to develop their skills after their initial teacher training course.

What are the benefits?

Develop skills and confidence in teaching young learners 

The Young Learner (YL) Extension to CELTA enables you to develop the skills and knowledge gained on your CELTA course and transfer them to the young learner teaching environment.

International recognition and quality assurance 

This course is for CELTA graduates who are interested in gaining an internationally-recognised qualification in teaching English to children.

How is it delivered?

 On the course you will:

  • attend input sessions covering all areas of teaching English as a second language to children aged 8-13
  • complete four hours of assessed teaching practice
  • work with at least two groups of young learners of different ages and abilities
  • observe ELT professionals
  • complete two written assignments on 1) classroom teaching and the identification of action points; 2) aspects of the teaching and learning of English at young learner level through a focus on young learners and learning contexts.
