DELTA Module Three

About The Course

DELTA Module Three, also known as the specialism module, It is accredited by Cambridge Assessment English, which means that you can work anywhere in the world with such a high qualification. 

It allows you to get your foot in the door for the specialties you’re really interested in or are already teaching. 

What Is the Content of DELTA Module Three?

If you’re familiar with DELTA Module One and Module Two, you’ll notice that Module Three is a little different. After taking the first steps with the first two modules, Module Three will allow you to pick between two options: 

Option One

It is called Extending Practice and ELT Specialism. With this option, you’ll be allowed to do independent research into different areas of special interest. For instance, business English or medical English. It focuses on course planning and assessment. 

Option Two

Also known as the English Language Teaching Management (ELTM) option. This option teaches you more about management and how to improve your own management skills as such skills can heavily impact your English teaching skills.

Here are the list of specialism choices you can pick for option one of Module Three:

  1. Business English (BE)
  2. Teaching young learners/young adults (specified age group required with 5-year range e.g. 8–13, 14–9) (YL)
  3. English for Special Purposes (ESP)
  4. English for Academic Purposes (EAP)
  5. Teaching examination classes (EX)
  6. Teaching one-to-one (1to1)
  7. ESOL learners with literacy needs (ESOL)
  8. CLIL/Embedded ESOL (teaching English through subject/work-based learning) (CLIL)
  9. Teaching monolingual classes (MON)
  10. Teaching multilingual classes (MUL)
  11. Teaching in an English-speaking environment (ESE)
  12. Teaching in a non-English-speaking environment. (NESE)
  13. Teaching learners online, through distance/blended learning (DL)
  14. Teaching English to learners with special requirements e.g. visual/hearing impairment, dyslexia, ASD (SR)
  15. Language development for teachers (LDT)
  16. Language Support (e.g. EAL on mainstream teaching programmes; specialist skills support such as supporting writing needs) (LS)

This option consists of thirty hours, all to provide you with the right management skills used for teaching. The second option is perfect for those who manage foreign language institutions or senior teachers, and who have or are about to have a high position of responsibility.

This module option aims to boost your reputation and credibility as an English language teacher as well as improve your management skills and provide you with information on how to tackle management problems.

The second option will be perfect for you if you hope to develop your career as an administrator, or run your own English language teaching institution.

It consists of 9 modules: one of which is an introductory module and the other 8 are content modules.

This option will include the following specialism areas:

  • Academic management.
  • Human resource management.
  • Customer service.
  • Marketing.

The English Language Teaching Management course is eligible for anyone who would like to improve their management skill when it comes to teaching English to others.

However, in order to be able to attend the course, you need to have access to data from a language teaching operation related to your focus area.

Course Info

Just like any English certificate, DELTA Module Three has a few requirements to determine who is eligible for the course and who isn’t. Anyone who passes the few next requirements is more than qualified for DELTA.

  • You need to be at least twenty-one years old.
  • You need to have one year or more of English teaching experience.
  • You need to have good English skills.
  • You need to have an initial teaching certification such as the CELTA.

DELTA Module Three is for you if you’re an English teacher of at least one year of teaching experience, who’s eager to improve and perhaps become head of English department or a teacher trainer. DELTA Module Three will also help you if you’re looking to work abroad.


DELTA is also the same for both native speakers and non-native speakers. As well as being suitable for you if you’d like to teach any age group, from young learners to adults.

When you’re applying for this course, there are some aspects that tutors love in the candidates.

  • Being resourceful
    You may encounter some obstacles while teaching and you have to deal with them and smartly solve them. That’s why you need to think more broadly while also focusing on the details of the situation.
  • Being diligent
    You’ll have to search for a wide range of resources and teaching materials. You need to evaluate these resources and choose only what’s useful and relevant.
  • Being critical
    As we’ve mentioned earlier, you need to judge different situations with critical eyes and when you pay attention to what your learners need, you can select the teaching strategy that fits those needs.
