About the DELTA
The DELTA is the Cambridge Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults, one of the world’s foremost qualifications for experienced TEFL professionals. It is a comprehensive training programme and is ideal for those wishing to acquire new insights and a deeper understanding of English Language Teaching (ELT). This advanced training includes teaching practice, lesson observations and supervised teaching assignments. The DELTA offers a well-proven fast track to professional recognition and can open-up new careers in teacher training, school management, TESOL publishing as well as many other ELT career paths.
The DELTA course is a modular course comprising of three modules. Candidates may choose to enter a single module or any combination of modules. The three modules can be taken in any order. You can find out more about each module by clicking here. It is worth noting that you get a separate certificate for each module you complete. However, you only receive the full DELTA qualification after successfully completing all three modules. You can take the modules in any order. In terms of the timing, there is not a set time limit to complete all three modules.
The Cambridge DELTA Diploma is in most countries equivalent to a Masters’ Degree level qualification.
Minimum Entry Requirements for the DELTA Modules
The DELTA Course is intended for experienced teachers. Meaning teachers who wish to extend their professional experience and accept new responsibilities. The DELTA does not only demonstrates a commitment to the profession but also proof of ability.
It is open to people from all language backgrounds. All participants must have native speaker proficiency, written and spoken, that enables them to follow the course and complete all assessed and non-assessed elements successfully.
Ideally, applicants should:
- have at least one years’ full time (1,200 hours) experience of teaching English to a variety of levels within the past five years.
- be able to prove a range of teaching experience in different contexts and at different levels.
- be a graduate and have an initial teaching qualification (i.e. CELTA, Trinity Cert TESOL or equivalent)
- have a standard of English which will enable you to teach at a range of levels (native-speaker proficiency, such as C2, CPE or IELTS 8+)
We may still accept applicants if they do not strictly meet these requirements but can demonstrate that they would be likely to complete the course successfully.
