What is DELTA?

DELTA is an Advanced blend of theory and practice

that provides professional development for teachers with at least one year’s experience.

It deepens the candidates’ knowledge and understanding of English language teaching, and enables them to to develop their career and prepare for more senior teaching roles.

DELTA is Internationally Recognized.

DELTA is an internationally recognised and highly respected qualification. Also, some MA programmes accept DELTA credits (up to 20 credits per module).

It is made up of three modules and includes teaching practice. The modules can be taken in any order and over any time period; yet it is recommended that candidates finish Module 1 first followed by Module 2 then 3.

As the modules are taken separately, each module is independently certificated. This allows candidates to receive credit for each module successfully completed.

Why do teachers take the DELTA?

● to refresh their teaching knowledge
● to review and update their teaching practice
● to be able to teach any age group
● to be promoted to more senior teaching roles
● to extend their expertise in a specialist area.
