Delta Module 2 - Training Course
If you are a CELTA-qualified experienced teacher of English and would like to further your career in ELT by becoming an academic manager, a teacher trainer or simply a more experienced and highly-qualified teacher, then it’s time to start thinking about Cambridge Delta Modules.
As one of the most widely-recognized and prestigious qualifications in ELT, Delta (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is placed by the UK Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation at Level 7 of the Qualifications and Credit Framework, which is the same level as a Master's degree. This course will help you to take your understanding of English language teaching and learning to the next level, advance your teaching skills and learn new skills which will open doors for you in the world of ELT wherever you go.
For Module Two, Developing Professional Practice, you will normally need to attend a course offered by an authorized Delta centre which includes assessed teaching and contact hours with experienced Delta trainers.
Course Requirement and Content
The candidates will have completed a Portfolio which will contain three internally assessed Language Skills/Systems Assignments and the Professional Development Assignment with the tutors’ assessment.
Also, candidates need to undertake 10 hours of live or video peer observations
The course involves 220 learning hours, 120 of which are contact hours with the tutors and 100 independent learning hours.
Module 2 assessment consists of 5 assignments
• Professional Development Assignment (which has two parts)
• 2 Language Skills Assignments
• 2 Language Systems Assignments
Each of the Language Skills/Systems Assignments includes

Why take Delta with us?
There are trainers who do their job and trainers who do their job well. Our trainers do their job perfectly well because they have their trainees’ needs at the heart and are sincerely interested in their progress. This year we’re inviting Robert Fletcher (UK) and Iulia Maria Lehner (Romania) to tutor on our courses. We’re very excited to be welcoming them in Kiev - they’re experienced, professional and fun to work with. We know you will enjoy the time with them.
A shorter course
We know how busy you are, so this year we’re launching a short course. The course will last for 6 weeks and cover all of Module 2. Some schools run 8-week courses which include preparation for modules 1 and 3 as well. We decided to focus on Module 2 only and do it well.
Focus on one thing at a time
Some centres offer Blended courses (e.g. Module 2 together with preparation for Module 1). We care for our customers, we know they are all different and have different needs. This is why we’ve decided that this summer we’ll be offering Delta Module 2 only. If you’ve taken Module 1 or Module 3, you won’t be paying for what you’ve done already. If you haven’t, we’ll be happy to offer you support with preparation for those modules closer to the deadlines.
