CELTA Online

NEW for 2020 - 100% Online CELTA courses! 

This certification from Cambridge University and delivered by Stafford House online will give you the tools you need to teach English as a foreign language. 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 CELTA course will give you the tools you need, delivered at different times, to suit different time zones.



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. It is the most widely recognised TEFL certificate in the world and is your passport to jobs across the globe. 

A CELTA from Stafford House opens up career opportunities as an English language teaching across the world as well as giving you career options 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. 



Our online CELTA courses carry the same certificate you'll receive for a face-to-face CELTA course. 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 full time course runs from Monday to Friday 9:30 - 17:30 UK time, with study breaks. You can also study a part-time online timetable with online classes held on weekday evenings.
