The Delta is a diploma that specialises in Teaching in as a Foreign Language and is accredited by Cambridge English Assessment.
The qualification is for experienced EFL teachers who want to progress their careers and develop into more senior roles.
In the UK, it is a level 7 qualification (recognised by Ofqual), which is equivalent to a Masters degree.
Alike to the CELTA, Delta is internationally recognised and is often seen as a benchmark for quality.
The Delta qualification is comprised of three modules: a written exam, reflective teaching practice, and a research paper and is recognised around language schools, organisations, and universities worldwide.
The qualification is ideal for EFL teachers who wish to develop their careers and deepen their teaching knowledge, so they can be experts in their fields.
