Summer TEFL Certification Program

Seville, Spain


Participate in this teaching qualification program and open yourself up to a world of opportunities as an English teacher. Education study abroad programs give you the opportunity to take the most widely-recognized course for English language instructors in the world -Cambridge CELTA- while immersing yourself in traditional Spanish culture in Seville, Spain. In this rigorous program, you will gain the skills, knowledge, and hands-on teaching experience you need to be a successful English language teacher. GlobalEd’s program in Seville, Spain makes this an international experience you won’t forget with weekly activities, excellent housing placements, supportive on-site staff, and post-program career services. The CELTA demands a great deal of work, both during and after course hours. This 4-week course is approximately 120 hours in total. Students begin teaching from day one and will be continually assessed throughout the course. Progress in practical teaching ability is of the greatest importance, but all aspects of performance and work done on the course are taken into consideration for the final grading, including the candidate’s preparation, written work, professionalism, and suitability as a future member of staff in an ELT context. Candidates constantly receive both written commentary and oral feedback on their teaching practice and written assignments, and by tutorial. This may be formulated in terms of passing and failing. Candidates who successfully complete the CELTA course will receive the Cambridge Certificate. The grades possible are Pass A, Pass B, Pass, or “No Certificate Awarded”. In addition, students will receive a graded certificate-report. This report describes the candidate’s performance in some detail and serves as a vital document to prospective employers.
