Delta Modules Edinburgh
Minimum Entry Requirements
The Delta Course is intended for experienced teachers wishing to extend their professional experience and accept new responsibilities, as it not only demonstrates a commitment to the profession, but is also proof of ability. It is open to people from all language backgrounds. All participants must have native speaker proficiency, both written and spoken, that enables them to follow the course and complete all assessed and non-assessed elements successfully.
Ideally applicants should:
1. have at least two years' full time (1,200 hours) experience of teaching English to adults within the past five years.
2. have a range of teaching experience in different contexts and at different levels.
3. be a graduate and have an initial teaching qualification.
4. have a standard of English which will enable you to teach at a range of levels.
We may still accept applicants if they do not strictly meet all of these requirements but can demonstrate that they would be likely to complete the course successfully. If you're unsure about your eligibility, get in contact with one of our Delta experts, who will assess your profile and let you know if you're eligible to apply.

About the Delta Course in Edinburgh, United Kingdom
The University of Cambridge English Language Assessment Delta (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), offered in Edinburgh, is the world’s most highly-regarded diploma-level teacher training course for experienced English teachers.
The aim of the Delta is to build on and deepen your pre-existing English teaching knowledge, making you a more well-rounded teacher, and furthering your career prospects.
The course is divided up into three modules. Module 1 is a written exam, held twice annually in June and December. Module 2 is an extensive, face-to-face course, which includes assessment via course work and observed teaching practice.
Finally, module 3 is an extended, written assignment on a subject of your choice, with the submission dates falling each year in June and December. This final module is broken up into two streams: Extending Practice and ELT Specialism and English Language Teaching Management. More information on each, individual module can be found below.
The Edinburgh centre offers all its Delta courses on a part-time basis. You have the option of either taking all three modules together, modules 2 and 3 together, or just module 2 on its own. Please note that the Edinburgh centre does not currently offer the module 1 and 3 courses separately.
