Frequently Asked Questions

1. Self-Paced Courses

What are the self-paced courses about in the first place?

The idea behind our self-paced courses is to give you the opportunity to get all the benefits of a course from the comfort of your home, in tour own time.

Our courses range from classroom management, through languages and CLIL, all the way to arts and wellbeing, so essentially our standard offer in a compact, comfortable version.

How can I apply?

You can apply very easily on our website, directly on the page of the course. You will be able to access the purchased self-paced online courses straight away.

How can I pay?

You will be able to add your self-paced online course directly to your cart. Then, you can click on ‘Proceed to checkout’ to finalize the payment. You can pay with PayPal, Mastercard, Visa, and the most popular credit and debit cards.

Will I get a certificate at the end of my self-paced online course?

At the end of the online course, you will receive a Europass Course Certificate.

How do I access the course?

Go to ‘my account’, then, click on ‘my courses’. Through there, you will be able to access all your purchased courses.

I purchased a self-paced online course but I do not want to follow it anymore. Can I ask for reimbursement?

Yes, absolutely. You have up to 14 days to ask for your money back.

2. CELTA Online

How does it work?

Albeit keeping the same structure as a standard, face-to-face CELTA, our online CELTA is a part-time course spanning over ten weeks.

A big part of the course will be held via Cambridge University’s platform, Moodle, while the live sessions will take place on Zoom.

How can I apply?

We kindly ask you to express your interest via our request form at the bottom of the page of the course, or directly by contacting our CELTA coordinator via e-mail at

Please note: your application for a CELTA course does not result in your automatic registration. You will be asked to perform some pre-registration tasks, as well as an interview with one of our CELTA tutors, in order to assess your aptitude.

How can I pay?

Upon the completion of the selection process, you will be e-mailed an invoice, of which you are asked to pay 30% upfront, in order to effectuate the registration. You will then have to pay the remainder at the latest 4 weeks before the start of your course.

You can pay via transfer, credit/debit card, or PayPal.

How am I going to be assessed?

CELTA is a course base on continuous assessment. You will take part in many workshops and live lesson observation sessions, besides having the opportunity to experience real teaching practice!

Can I take a full-time standard CELTA course instead?

Of course! We offer two full-time CELTA sessions per year in our school in Florence. They last 4 weeks, and they’re a nice way to get out of your house, explore, and relax a little bit in-between classes.
