Thanks very much Martin! I will email you with some details,thanks for your help in advance.
I have some 'news' though and I would like to share it with the forum.Apparently I had a class today,as I was promised on Tuesday.They canceled it 1 hour before the class.The school is in Wimbledon,so I rushed there as I got the message.I asked for the manager,he was not there and my favourite receptionist was really surprised I was there,as she canceled it already.She could not give me an explanation why it was canceled, was embarassed and cornered-didn't expect to see me.She said the manager will be back in about 20 min,I said I can wait.She said I'd better come back..Why? He must have been hiding somewhere in the school,I thought.I left,took some deep breath,and went back in 20 min.Surprise,he was there,waiting for me.Looked disturbed,hardly looked at me.Suspicious,isn't it?Then we sat down and talked.I told him it seems it is not a proper CELTA course.And I am not satisfied with the quality-he apologized,they don't have a teacher.How come you had one 1 week ago when I gave you 600 pounds?-I asked.Oh,she left after that.What a simple lie!Then,he said it is NOT a CELTA course,it is a TEFL course.Their website clearly said CELTA when I applied,which is 'under construction' after recently they changed their name.Therefore I cannot get the proof from there.He thinks I am a fool after we definitely talked about CELTA during registration.The receipts and my application form says TEFL though.It is partly my mistake as well,as I thought CELTA is part of TEFL.It was definitely on their website in the course options,I remember searching CELTA,and it appeared.So I asked for a refund on the basis of not getting the offered course and of course he said he cannot give it back.Then I left him saying he should find me a solution soon because I am not intending to carry on with his course,even if it is TEFL,I want CELTA.I did not say anything about police,yet.Then I came home,looked at my course material which he gave me a month ago,when I paid the deposit,and thank God!It is about CELTA! CELTA course this,CELTA course that..He gave me this and now claiming it is a TEFL course.I got the proof! I just did not realized it earlier as it was obvious for me it was a CELTA.I can now contact Cambridge saying he is selling this document.I also found several websites saying this school have CELTA courses,that's another proof as well.When I told him this he said nothing.
Anyway,there was a pre-course task and interview on my application form,but they said I do not have to do it as I am a teacher.There was no Cambridge documentation,of course.That form looked professional but did not mention CELTA.He said he will call me on Monday to give me a 'solution' but I am not expecting much of it..
As far as I know TEFL is quite good,internationally recognised as well,but they don't accept it everywhere like CELTA.Do you know who accredits the TEFL course? If it turns out they are really TEFL I can still complain about the quality.
Yes,I don't know about many CELTA part time in the area either,that's why I was happy at first they have one in Wimbledon,near my place.I am thinking of the next step now and I will email you about the rest.
I feel it's like a blog,perhaps I should open a blog about it...
I will see,how long this nightmare will last,but unfortunately I am still deep in it..Thanks for reading.
