All full-time CELTA courses include either 19 or 20 days of class (depending on holidays). The course fees are not affected by the course duration.

Trainees are required to attend all timetabled sessions. For the first unexcused absence, the trainee will be issued with a written warning. For the second unexcused absence, the trainee will be considered to have withdrawn from the course and will not be eligible for a refund.
If you postpone your start date and notify us…
…before the application deadline, all fees paid (including the deposit) will be valid for a future course taken within one year of postponement.
…after the application deadline but before the course starts, you will need to repay the €425 deposit to join a later course. Any other fees paid will be valid for a future course taken within one year of postponement.
…after the course starts, you will need to repay the €425 deposit OR the prorated fees based on the amount of training received prior to cancellation plus any costs incurred (cover for your classes, admin, Cambridge assessment fee), whichever amount is higher.
If you cancel your registration and notify us…
…before the application deadline, you will receive a full refund of all fees paid except the deposit (€425).
…after the application deadline, no fees will be refunded. However, a portion of your fees may still be valid if you wish to join a later course (see postponement terms above).
We reserve the right to cancel a course up to 5 days before the start date. If this happens, you will have three options:
Change modalities (e.g., face-to-face → online).
Postpone your start date (all fees paid will be carried forward).
