At the end of the course, candidates receive a certificate directly from Cambridge University with their name and their grade. The certificate is exactly the same world-wide, regardless of where the course was taken.
EfA's CELTA courses in 2020 were all "fully online" courses. This is a format that was created by Cambridge to adapt to new conditions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
In a typical blended CELTA course, teaching practice is done in person (not online). In the fully online course, teaching practice will be done online, using a platform such as Zoom.
The certificate candidates receive at the end of the course does not indicate that it is an online course. It is exactly the same certificate, as are the assessment criteria and content of the course.
EfA will also launch both face-to-face and blended (face-t0-face teaching practice) courses in Morocco this year. The courses will take place in Rabat, with two concurrent courses, one full-time (C1, Monday to Friday, 9 to 5.30) and the other blended/part-time (P1, TP only on the weekend). This will be followed up by another full-time intesive course in Tangier (C2).

The course will have a minimum of two trainers (one for every six trainees). The Main / Online Course Tutor will be Mohamed Oummih, the founder and director of English for Africa. The Assistant Course Tutor will be an internationally based trainer who has received official approval to run courses from Cambridge University.
EfA works with a limited number of trainers, in order to ensure that courses are consistent and of high quality.
In an effort to adapt to the new circumstances imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Cambridge Assessment has temporarily allowed centres to run a fully online CELTA course. All the elements of the course will be conducted online, including input, assignments, teacher observation, teaching practice, assisted lesson planning, and feedback.
The content, assessment criteria, and final certificate are the same for the online course as for the face-to-face course. Crucially, there is no mention on the certificate of whether the course was taken online or face-to-face.
English for Africa will offer a series of free pre-course training sessions in order help candidates get used to using the online platform.
Free Grammar Refresher Course
All our courses are preceded by a free six-hour grammar workshop specially designed for the CELTA course, and run by either Mohamed Oummih or the Assistant Course Tutor.
Teaching practice for our courses (aside from those which are fully online) will take place on the premises of our Rabat partner school, the Bridges Center for Culture and Communication (check out their Facebook page for more information), located in the Hay Riad sector in Rabat.
Bridges received the visit of a Cambridge Assessment representative, and were officially approved as a CELTA course venue.
