Stafford House has been delivering language related courses for over 60 years. With schools in the UK, the US and Canada, we have a reputation for quality, excellent customer service, and attention to detail, and we pride ourselves on being able to meet the individual needs of students and trainees.

Our Central London school offers the CELTA course, accredited by Cambridge English Language Assessment, part of the University of Cambridge. The course aims to equip trainees with all the fundamental skills needed to go straight into the classroom and teach English as a foreign or second language, either in the UK or overseas. This highly regarded qualification is recognised all over the world, by the British Council and all other major industry bodies, and is equivalent to level 5 on the National Qualifications Framework.

School facilities include a dedicated computer and resource room for trainees, including a fully stocked library of teacher training resources. There is also free Wi-Fi throughout, a café, and a canteen serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition to this, we have dedicated, professional and passionate trainers, with many years of industry experience.

As part of Cambridge Education Group, which employs 400 English language teachers a year in the UK alone, we are able to offer job opportunities for promising graduates in both summer schools and all year round schools. We also offer guidance on finding jobs and connections with schools in Spain and Italy.

We offer both full time and part time courses and keep group sizes to a maximum of 15.

I would recommend anyone who is planning on doing a CELTA to apply to Stafford House. Our tutors were really passionate, knowledgeable and brilliant teachers. The workshops were always really engaging and useful, and the feedback we received on our teaching practice really helped. I got loads more out of the course than I expected and I feel well prepared to teach English. I really can’t imagine another course being of better quality and it’s really good value for money too in comparison with others.

I loved the CELTA course at Stafford House! We became familiar with the CELTA methodology, learned effective teaching techniques and observed some really good lessons from experienced teachers.
What made the course so great was that we had the chance to put theory into practice. We taught pre-intermediate and upper-intermediate students and received valuable feedback from our excellent tutors, who were really supportive throughout the course.
Overall, I would recommend Stafford House to anyone interested in teaching English as a foreign language!

An enjoyable experience.

The team at Stafford house were supportive and friendly throughout the course and post course! The timetable was well organised and we were given ample opportunity to observe various level lessons as well as teach upper intermediate and elementary level learners’. It is an intensive course but i wouldn’t say it is difficult, you are guided and supported by your course tutors.

The location is perfect! Central London, in close proximity to underground stations, parks and restaurants.

If you want to do your CELTA, then I would highly recommend doing it at Stafford House. I am even encouraging my cousin to register!

The CELTA course at Stafford House was excellent. The two trainers were expert and supportive and kept their sense of humour throughout. They complemented each other well. The course was well organised, with some great resources and ideas. We observed some fantastically good teaching and taught students at pre-intermediate and upper-intermediate level. The trainers’ advice on jobs was very useful in the final week and some of us secured good jobs before the course ended.

The Stafford House team gave me a great standard of coaching, with excellent feedback that I was increasingly encouraged to lead.

The whole course is very supportive. You have quite a lot to do over the month, which you’d expect from a month-long, full-time course. But you are helped by the camaraderie you have with the other students, and from the teachers as well.

The teachers are really nice people, with decades of experience teaching here and abroad. You’ll enjoy the course. The CELTA course teaches all kinds of skills, so even if you don’t go on to teach English, just from a developmental standpoint I reckon it’s worth it. You’ll enjoy it
