School Overview

School Description

CELT Athens is a centre dedicated to teacher education and has been running since 1993.

It is owned and run by Marisa Constantinides, a teacher educator, writer, blogger and keynote speaker of international reputation.

CELT is in Athens, Greece and has recently moved to modern, spacious premises in the heart of the city.

The centre has gained an international reputation because of the high quality of instruction and the excellence in the results on Cambridge CELTA and Delta courses.

Our online courses in a live classroom, have become hugely popular attracting candidates who prefer to be able to see and talk to their tutors rather than be faced with an asynchronous and faceless learning management system.

We are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in English Language Teaching and Teacher Education through ensuring

- Excellence in tutors
- Excellence in resources
- Excellence in support systems

The centre is especially supportive to its trainees, and offers:

- Multilingual classes of adults where our candidates can observe and be observed while teaching.

- Strong course support through course dedicated websites with resources, sample assignments and videotaped seminars for preparation and revision. Our trainees have access to these resources for life.

- Free internet access

- Use of PC's and printing for lesson preparation and materials design

- An updated library and resources, which have received high praise by all Cambridge Assessors.

- Continued support after the end of our courses through our online communities and connections with institutions and individuals worldwide.

Our past trainees receive guidance on how to join the international ELT community and to build interesting and rewarding careers.

Indeed, our social media presence is one of the strongest worldwide with a network reaching out to teachers around the globe.

Help with Employment

CELT Athens has excellent local and international connections with foreign language centres and job recruitment agencies worldwide. It has a very strong presence in all the social networking sites as well as an online website for its trainees to network with schools and leave their CV and samples of work.

Special guidance is given on creating efficient resumes and contacting employers.

More recently, we have been working directly with recruitment companies - our trainees are also closely networked in a closed community where jobs and career opportunities are regularly posted.

Accommodation

Shared flats are sublet to two or three trainees at a very reasonable cost, ranging from 300 to 350 euros per person with water, electricity and wifi included in the price.

Refund Policy

Our refund policy is clearly outlined in each course application form and candidates are required to read carefully and sign before they submit their application.

Location Overview

We are very pleased and happy to show off our new premises.

Information about Athens

Athens, Greece, is a friendly, safe and welcoming, yet exciting and modern European city with so much to do in its present and see of its past.

Athens is very close to a great coastline of beaches - for summer candidates, this is a great and easy getaway from the hard work on the course!

It's also very easy to jump on a boat and find yourself on one of the most famous Greek islands in under two hours!

Hydra, Spetsae, Aegina, are great and very easily accessible destinations.

Mykonos and Santorini, magnificent Greek islands, can be reached by hydrofoil or low priced domestic flight equally easily.

Athens is a great destination to complete your CELTA and give yourself the gift of short breaks or a short holiday at either end of the course.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


The team at CELT Athens are outstanding. I was so impressed by the breadth and depth of experience of the team, and learned so much from them during my time there. They are all very experienced trainers, and just very nice people, and they support you to be the best you can be. The school also has a fantastic location, right in the centre of Athens and easily accessible. Within walking distance to great restaurants, bars and more traditional sightseeing spots if that's your thing! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend CELT Athens to anyone considering a CELTA or DELTA.

, DELTA Blended student,

Great environment, very helpful tutors that supported and encouraged me all the way! I learned a lot and would definitely recommend this centre to other candidates!

, DELTA Blended student,

Doing the DELTA course was a challenging but at the same time rewarding experience. It helped me improve my teaching practice and experiment with new teaching methods. The tutors at CELT Athens are highly experienced people who are always willing to support and guide their trainees. I particularly enjoyed the enlightening feedback sessions during which my tutors and I were engaged in absolutely constructive discussions that made me clearly see what areas I need to focus and work on so as to develop further. CELT Athens has recently moved to new premises in the heart of Athens with spacious and fully equipped classrooms (e.g. laptops, OHPs, Interactive Whiteboards etc.). There is also access to lots of supplementary materials and useful resources such as sample assignments and valuable books in the library. CELT Athens is highly recommended! Go for it!

, DELTA All Modules student,

A thoroughly enjoyable experience to have committed to the Celt Athens CELTA course. Hard work is required, so a supportive environment is most appreciated!

, CELTA student,

It was really nice! My comment regarding the facilities is not about the new building!

, CELTA student,

I loved every minute of it. Great Tutors worked their sock off to make it a good experience for students, while keeping the rigour of the course. A lovely bunch!

, CELTA student,

The entire course was extremely professional, demanding, and very well run.

, CELTA student,

I was very satisfied by the overall quality of the programme. The tutors could effectively deliver the course and I felt supported at all times. I definitely enriched my knowledge and became a better teacher. The centre is well equipped and in a convenient location in te centre of Athens, metro and train station is within walking distance.

, CELTA student,

My one month stay at Athens, with CELT Athens, was nothing short of wonderful. I was well looked after by the administrative staff ( thank you Vassilis & Lisa) and given tremendous academic support by my tutors George & Marisa. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I would recommend this course in a heartbeat!

, DELTA Blended student,

A tough four weeks that felt enjoyable and manageable thanks to the well organised course and amazing tutors!

, CELTA student,

The online Delta course was a true revelation for me. Wish I had done it earlier in life, when I didn't have so many family commitments. Made me feel like I'm actually enjoying teaching again after having taught for about 20 years. Great turors who really know their stuff and truly care about every individual trainee. If you have the chance, don't even think about doing a Delta/Celta elsewhere.

, DELTA Blended student,

The course is extrremely well-designed, and sufficiently demanding. I was particularly impressed by the course tutors' knowledge and experience, and also their dedication to what they are doing. I am very grateful to both the DELTA course tutors, and the CELTA course tutors, who were also happy to give advice during the time spent in Athens. As a result, I have already recommended the course to several colleagues, and my son is considering doing the CELTA with CELT Athens.

, DELTA Blended student,

Although the course was really demanding and challenging ( it was the 4-week one), I enjoyed every minute of it. The trainers were amazing and they helped me become a better teacher giving me constructive feedback.

, CELTA student,

Despite being very intensive and demanding I really appreciated the support from my tutors. I

, CELTA student,

Exceptional experience in a great place!! Going back for the Delta!!!!

, CELTA student,

It was such a wonderful experience as I learned a lot about planning and preparation. The tutors were helpful. They spared no effort to help trainees develop their teaching skills.

, CELTA student,

Highly recommended for all who teach or want to teach English!!!

, CELTA student,

Challenging experience

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed the Delta online blended course at CELT Athens. I received excellent feedback from my tutors Marisa and George throughout the course and was thoroughly prepared for all Modules. This course has really improved both my knowledge of teaching theories and my personal teaching practice. I can easily say that I have improved immensely. Thank you CELT!

, CELTA student,

I really learnt a lot of things in teaching English language methods. I also through this intensive course improved my teaching skills the thing that increased my experience and will help me in my career in the future.

, CELTA student,

Excellent experience!

, CELTA student,

My experience on the CELTA course has definitely been eye-opening. To say that I learned a lot would be an understatement. I am extremely grateful to my tutors, Alexandra and Alexander, my fellow trainee teachers, and everyone else involved in the process. Thank you all for your patience, guidance, feedback, and motivation!

, CELTA student,

All in all, I had a wonderful and educative time at CELT Athens while taking my CELTA course. All of the tutors showed a high command of their subject matter and delivered all the sessions professionally. I highly commend CELT Athens as a teacher training centre. Tutors there practice what they preach!

, CELTA student,

The course was demanding; yet, lots of constant help and fulfilling support was provided by such wonderful CELT trainers. This course has been a better bang for my buck.

, CELTA student,

Tough but really worthwhile!

, CELTA student,

Definitely worth all the blood, sweat and tears! A great course in a great city, I have not regretted my decision to take the CELTA at CELTAthens once.

, CELTA student,

Hard work - good teamwork -interesting

, CELTA student,

I completed the CELTA programme through CELTAthens in my beloved city of Athens and I must say, the experience was nothing short of life-changing! Even though the full-time CELTA course is a very stressful and exhausting experience, I'm really glad I finally took it. By doing the CELTA you're testing whether you're really capable of being a good, confident and creative teacher. Not only do you learn the theory behind teaching, but you also have the experience of actually teaching real life students. Much of the credit for this has to go to our trainers, Alexander, Alexandra and Marisa. They shared their knowledge and expertise with us throughout the course, supporting and inspiring us. I'm grateful for their guidance and inspiration! Being also able to lean on the shoulders of my fellow trainees really helped me get through the program – I may never meet some of them again, but for that one month they became my close friends and family. All in all, I was very satisfied by the content of my CELTA course and -although being a newbie in the field - I really think that it helped me become a better teacher. In fact, I landed a very good teaching position in Milan, within a couple of months after finishing the course: I am currently teaching various classes and my students vary in age from 5 to 30 years old! It's the first time I enjoy my job so much! CELTA course? Thoroughly recommended! :)

, CELTA student,

It was a wonderful experience for me. I feel that it has really helped me grow as a teacher and made me want to continue growing and becoming better.

, CELTA student,

The CELTA course at CELT Athens has been the best experience of my professional and personal life so far. What made it that special? Well, the tutors and the support they gave me. I cannot even understand how they managed to be always calm, smiling, and helpful. It is only when one goes through a CELTA course that they understand the importance of the CELTA tutors. Thank you all so much for everything. (P.S. The school is located in Athens city centre, next to central train, metro, and bus stations, as well as next to some of the best - and cheapest - restaurants of the city. Nothing beats a good meal after a Teaching Practice.) I recommend it wholeheartedly.

, CELTA student,

It was a really interesting course that helped understand what being a teacher feels like! Highly recommended!!!

, CELTA student,

Extremely useful for my future prospects

, CELTA student,

The course definitely improved my teaching techniques.

, CELTA student,

This course is really tough but it really prepares you with a good foundation to start teaching. I'm currently preparing to give my professional exams for my teaching license in the United States and the knowledge from this course is helping me in this area too. Well worth the money and your temporary stress!

, CELTA student,

It was such a great experience. The tutors were very dedicated, professional and helpful. Fellow trainees were very friendly and enthusiastic.

, CELTA student,

I would like to thank every single person I met at CELT Athens. It's been an experience. Subjected to different teaching styles and techniques, I consider CELT Athens as the best place to do the celta course.

, CELTA student,

I always feel pleased when I remember these days when I was with you all tutors and administration there in Athens which is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities on earth. Therefore I would like to thank you all for your support, gentility and good behavior with all of the trainees. Thanks for everyone in CELTATHENS institute with my best wishes and regards.

, CELTA student,

Full of valuable information and passion .CELT Athens always pushes you forwards and soon I hope to see CELT Athens Airlines.

, CELTA student,

The course is an eye-opener and a stepping stone to professionalism in the field of teaching. One won't regret doing such a course that broadens your chances of excellence.

, CELTA student,

In overall my personal experience concerning the Celta course can be described only as unique. I consider myself as one of the luckiest to be accepted and have the chance to work close to my tutors. It was the vast development of my skills, the new perspectives I was exposed to and the respectful guidance I was offered that made me realise I had reached a turning point in my career. Everything was brilliant and solid;the sessions, the actual knowledge offered and the evaluation procedures, all characterised by professionalism, accuracy and justification. I could go on forever, but I don't think there are words to describe these feelings and emotions. I would definitely recommend Celt Athens to anyone willing to go after this certificate, as to see first-hand the tremendous work being done. Thank you Mrs.Constantinides,Mr.Makarios and Mrs.Koukoumialou for everything you have taught me!- Vasileios Andriopoulos, August 2014 Course

, CELTA student,

I would like to thank all the tutors and the administrative staff for their complete support, brisk cooperation, and surprising patience.

, CELTA student,

Supportive tutors and access to alot of supplementary materials in the library. The course was very instructive and definitely helped me develop as a teacher. I would recommend the specific school for anyone considering doing a CELTA course.

, CELTA student,

I really had a brilliant experience although we were under pressure.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience, with lots of new information and knowledge to expand our teaching methods and attitudes. Some of them are great teachers and mentors, very helpful and honest. However it could have been better in ways of (some) tutor&staff behaviour and approach and also be more ''real'' in terms of feelings and ways of comunicating with the trainees. It seemed like some of they were trying to be kind and helpful while some times they were ironic and judging before understanding situations. All in all there is room for improvement .

, CELTA student,

It was very enlightening as it helped me improve my teaching skills and most importantly, I was intoduced to new teaching methods that helped me complete my tasks faster in class.

, CELTA student,

This course gave me the opportunity to improve my teaching skills and to be able to work abroad which was an unforgettable experience. The tutors were all very helpful and of a high level of professionalism.

, CELTA student,

Excellent! Couldn't have asked for a better experience overall!! Celt Athens was and is the best centre to take any course offered.

, CELTA student,

I am glad I came to CELT Athens to do my course. The tutors and staff we very helpful and supportive, and always on hand to help me with whatever I needed. The course was well-organized, informative and enjoyable. I would recommend CELT Athens to anyone considering taking the CELTA qualification.

, CELTA student,

It was an overall stressful experience as it is in the nature of the course but other than that the atmosphere during it was really friendly and everyone was very supportive of one another. I would definitely recommend CELT Athens to people who are thinking about enrolling on the course.

, CELTA student,

Crash course life changing

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed the course and I felt that I got a lot out of it, even if while on the course, all did not quite fit into place. I felt the staff were very professional.

, CELTA student,

It was a very chalenging but at the same time rewarding experience.

, CELTA student,

My CELTA course was a really constructive experience and it helped me to improve my teaching qualifications and also to practice new teaching methods. I believe that having real classes situations to face was very important for us to focus on our strong and weak points as well as communicate with the students and realize what their needs was, was also valuable.

, CELTA student,

It was unforgettable experience;whereas you have done your best to help your learners in a professional way. I already recommend Celt Athens to all my colleges who are welling to do the CELTA.

, CELTA student,

In general, it was an amazing experience and I learned a lot. The only thing that I would change is to introduce the topic of lesson planning (language awareness and all) during the first week (preferably the first two days) so that trainees would know what to do when planning the 1st TP.

, CELTA student,

Excellent course, run by enthusiastic and supportive tutors. The CELTA class size was just right and the student groups we taught were also lovely. I'd recommend both the course, and Athens as a place to study.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience for me.
