Mixed Mode CELTA

MixED Mode Celta

Not sure if you would like to take an online or Face to Face CELTA? Want to gain experience in both? Stafford House London is offering a mixed mode CELTA which combines both face to face and online teacher training and allows trainees to experience both formats.

Taught over a 9 week period, the Mixed Mode CELTA course starts with 7 weeks of Online CELTA training, taking place on a Monday evening (4 hours) and is followed by 2 weeks of fulltime face-to-face tuition at our London school.

Whether you are a recent graduate wanting to start your career, looking to teach English abroad in a gap year or during a career break, or somebody wanting a complete career change, our Mixed Mode CELTA course will give you the tools you need.



Why Get a CELTA?

Do you want to live in Mexico, Hong Kong, Italy or Dubai? The University of Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) could be the best way to achieve your travel goals.

A CELTA from Stafford House would not only allow you to travel all over the world, but could even include career opportunities in English speaking countries. Whether you are a recent graduate wanting to start your career or during a career break or career change, this course will take you to the next stage in your life.

The hybrid approach of online and face to face learning that the Mixed Mode CELTA employs offers our trainees the best of both worlds and the opportunity to gain valuable experience of the modern teaching landscape, learning methods appropriate to teaching both online and in person.

Our Mixed Mode CELTA courses carry the same certification you'll receive for a face-to-face CELTA course. For the online segment of the course (7 weeks) we use the Zoom video conferencing platform for our teaching practice and live classes, and a Moodle learning platform with Cambridge University approved materials which all trainee teachers will have access to during and after the course. The 2 week face to face segment of the course will run fulltime (Monday - Friday 9.30am - 5.30pm UK time) and be based at our Stafford House London school.

The online segment is 7 weeks long and consists of 4 hour online teaching practice sessions on Monday evenings (6 - 10pm UK time), with online learning modules that trainees study in their own time.

The face to face segment is 2 weeks long and consists of full time teacher training (Monday - Friday 9.30am - 5.30pm UK time with study breaks).
