DELTA: Dates and Fees
DELTA is the TEFL qualification intended for practising and experienced English language teachers. As from September 2008 Cambridge English Language Assessment introduced the modular DELTA in three modules. Our preparation courses provide in-service training for the Module One examination, Module Two teaching practice and Module Three extended assignment and assist you in the development of your capacities as a teacher. The modular framework provides you with an accessible professional development programme with flexible entry points. Candidates may choose to do any or all of the modules and have the opportunity to focus on a specialist area of teaching in Modules Two and Three. Each module is assessed independently and is separately certified. Achievement of a Pass in all three modules confers the status of a full Delta qualification.

Module One course – Online or Blended Learning: 08/02/2020- 30/05/2020

It focuses on your awareness and expertise in professional practice in a range of contexts and is tested by 5 practical assignments that involve written work and observation by a tutor of your teaching on a number of occasions. Our M2 course involves 5 practical assignments and is delivered via Blended Learning. The face to face component entails teaching practice and attendance of seminars at our centre and involves tutor guidance online. The teaching practice is with specially arranged classes at our centre. Dates and fees for next academic year available soon.
