Are there any requirements conserning teaching approaches applied during CELTA training?
CELTA syllabus assessment guidelines 2011 avaialble on Cambridge ESO site doen't say a word about practising various techniques apart from 'using appropriate strategies'.
In other words, is it all about PPP only, or does it depend on the CELTA centre policy which approach / method to train?
IMO, it's most unlikely for an unexperienced trainee teacher to come up with TBL or Test-Teach-Test if the whole course is based on PPP.
On the oth hand, with so few hours they may not have enough time to cover other approaches.
What I'd actually like to know is if there's a qualificaion or a course centered round Task-Based Learning with a focus on practice rather than theory.
