The assessment of CELTA is continuous and integrated. There is no final exam.
The candidates are assessed primarily in the areas of:
- Teaching practice (each assessed lesson is given a grade)
- Written assignments
The CELTA course also takes into consideration various aspects of professionalism and professional development.
- Responsible and professional attitude to learning
- Responsible and professional attitude to planning and teaching of your lessons
- Punctuality and organisation
- Willingness to respond to feedback and adjust your own teaching appropriately
- Overall progress and professionalism in the field
The CELTA certificate is awarded to candidates who satisfy all assessment criteria and complete all course requirements. These include:
- Attendance of 100% of the course
- Completion of all teaching practice and observations of experienced teachers
- Completion of all four assignments (three or more assessed as ‘Pass’)
- The grades of the certificate are Pass, Pass B (above standard teaching) or Pass A (exceptional language awareness, teaching and professionalism).
- Candidates who successfully complete the course, receive both the Cambridge CELTA certificate and a report/letter from the trainers at Ih Mexico. The letter describes the candidate’s performance in some detail and serves as a useful reference for employment.
