Hi, I have gotten into such a mess and really need some sound advice.I did a month long CELTA course - which cost me £1230.00 (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). I have also taken a career break and was hoping when I finished the course that I would go away and teach aboard. My boyfriend of 4 years helped with the coursework on the course ie. proof reading. When I finished the course we finished as he had doubts about leaving his job and also he wanted me to wait for five months here so that he could finish up and go away with me - "so he said." As the course finished and I had his laptop I looked up his facebook and read a message to a male friend of his in Oz saying that he was coming out there. Well as you can tell I called him and confronted him. He had the excuse that he was trying to cheer his friend up etc. I was in the middle of completing the course so I had to leave that aside and get to the end of it and decided I would deal with that issue when it was all over. He helped with the coursework and knew everything about it. I struggled through the course and found it very difficult and was leaving at one stage but toughed it out to the end - and was told by the tutor that I had passed. I got home from the course and was out for a dinner with my boyfriend to talk over everything and really to put aside out differences. We had an argrument over my accessing his facebook and reading his private messages. You see his history on facebook contacting other women in the past has being an issue and I have caught him contacting them via FB for hookup (which he said he was only messing)!! Any ways we had a fight and he left the place and I went home. We had no contact for a week and I just want space. We met up for Tea and a chat on Saturday past and he asked "did you get your certificate for he course yet"? I said it was in the post - and he proceeded to show me an email he had sent the organisation who ran the course - stating that he had done on the work - and that I was thick - and he was going to the press if I got the cert. He thought he was in the clear as he had picked up that I had gotten the CELTA Cert in the post. What he didn't realise was I meant it was "coming" in the post. Needless to say - THE PROBLEM - is I have not recieved anything and all the other trainees have got theirs last week. I am so disappointed that someone I loved could be so cruel. But I really need to know how to take this forward with CELTA. I did all the work on my own. I am not a cheat. It being a heartbreaking experience and I have already had to get the police to this ex to leave me alone. Please tell me how to approach the organisation so that the understand he is a weirdo and liar. And why have they not contacted me via email or letter to explain the hold up - IF they are investigating. Please please help me. I can't afford this kinda money to lose it over this. And he is no longer in my life.
My god I am so glad he is out of your life, he sounds like he is bitter and jealous of you, what a sad twisted person he is indeed he won't get luck for it.
I am sure there is a way to contact them on this If that was the case I could send an email saying the same...... you paid the fee so he owes you that .....do you have a receipt for the fee..... I would get a solicitors letter for him.... if he receives your work he owes you the money.....
Play him at his own game... tell you parents this guy needs to be brought down a peg or two.
Oh dear, you must feel extremely betrayed and even worse, by someone who you thought you loved and could trust. I would definitely email CELTA and explain the situation to them, I am sure that they will completely understand the situation. If they don't reply within 48 hours then ring them up. There is no way on earth that this guy is going to screw you over like this and get away with it, I am a strong believer in karma and he will pay for causing you all this pain. Things will work out, just make sure you keep yourself sane and not do anything silly while you go through this heartbreaking experience!
Contact officials ASAP by phone and by email. Get a real person to talk to about this. Explain that a jilted lover is trying to sabotage your career.
Get letters of recommendation or affidavits from people who can verify that you are qualified to receive this certification. Tell them you will re-take any required test.
Stay away from this guy. He is a psycho.
Never let this person into your personal life or space again he is a complete lunatic......
