I was worried coming into the 4 week intensive course with no teaching experience that I would struggle to keep up. This turned out to be far from the case, due to the support network in place from the tutors and the CELTA team in general. The input sessions are diverse and usable and encourage you to use the techniques straight away. The feedback was fair from both tutors and I particularly liked the idea of self evaluation and giving feedback to each other. The difference in styles between the two tutors was fairly significant and the jump from one type of feedback to another mid way was tricky to deal with at first, but on reflection, has been really useful. You get to observe your own tutors and other CELTA teachers in real classes and the students you teach yourselves are great and very keen to learn! There could have been more computers in the CELTA rooms and I did not use the library, although most of what i needed was online anyway. Overall, I am really glad I came to Stafford House. It was a lot of work, but the support of the team and my classmates around me made it enjoyable and manageable. This course has given me the confidence to teach and teach well and I am excited for the next step!

Studying the CELTA course at Stafford House was engaging, inspiring and a good experience altogether! I was impressed with the knowledge and support of the tutors and staff who were always on hand to support you even via emails; always very prompt to reply. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to become English teachers to adults. The Teaching Practice sessions were very informative and feedback was always very effective and constructive. Thanks to all staff who made it a lovely experience and less stressful!

Doing the CELTA course at Stafford House is such an amazing experience. There is no other course like it. You’ll understand what I mean when you do it.

The skills you get are invaluable.The trainers are so supportive and have so much knowledge. The course administrators are so helpful and friendly. You can’t be in better hands. The students are lovely, and the other trainees become like your family.

I did the part-time online course during the week with teaching practice every Saturday. Having a full-time job at the same time is quite challenging and you kind of forget about your social life for a while, but you get there in the end and it’s so rewarding.

I would definitely recommend doing CELTA at Stafford House. Apart from all the reasons above it’s in a great location and it’s good value for money too!

CELTA is definitely an intense course whether it’s done part-time, full-time or online, but completing it in a friendly, constructive and encouraging atmosphere such as The Stafford House is worth it.

Not only are the tutors genuinely helpful and insightful with their feedback, the management too do whatever they can to make the environment as efficient & welcoming as possible.

There was a week where it snowed in London, and I was not able to get to the center to print my materials on time but was very kindly assisted by the admin there, Karen, when I needed it.

The students that we had to ‘practice teach’ were lovely as well, fostering a positive environment overall. At the end of this course, I am able to take away a lot of knowledge, teaching experience, and new friends.

Along with its convenient location in the city, I would highly recommend taking the course at The Stafford House.
