In Response To: Re: relaxed CELTA training site (nomad soul)

There are a few centres that offer part-time CELTAs over several months, or online CELTAs where the observed teaching practice is done to their schedule but the main learning component is online, etc, which would be more relaxed.

As others have said, there's no NEE for a CELTA for many ESL jobs, but it can and does show that you have a higher level of competence in the job than people without a CELTA or equivalent (equivalent being Trinity CertTESOL or SIT CertTESOL).

Teaching ESL is very, very different from university lecturing or research, and as almost any undergraduate will tell you anyway, simply having a PhD does NOT mean you are an engaging and capable teacher, merely a good researcher. Some people are both, but many, many academics are not; CELTA will also help with classroom performance.
