The Delta Modules

Teacher Training

The best-known and most popular advanced TEFL/TESOL qualifications in the world, the Delta Modules are a flexible way for experienced English language teachers to progress further in their careers. Delta Modules can be taken at any stage in a teacher’s career. They are suitable for people already teaching English in a variety of contexts, e.g. adult, primary or secondary teaching, and are intended for an international audience of non-first language or first-language teachers of English. The Delta Modules are internationally recognised qualifications designed for teachers who wish to build on their experience of teaching English to speakers of other languages. They aim to increase understanding of the principles and practice of English language teaching and thereby help improve overall performance in the classroom, as well as preparing candidates for more senior teaching or educational management roles. The courses are validated and the syllabus and assessment criteria set by Cambridge English.

There are three Delta Modules which are separately assessed and certified:

Module One focuses on the background to teaching and learning English in a range of contexts and is assessed through a written examination.

Module Two focuses on planning and teaching lessons and selecting and using resources and materials and is assessed through a portfolio of coursework and an externally assessed classroom observation.

Module Three focuses on designing courses to meet learners’ needs in specific contexts and is assessed through an extended written assignment.

Candidates are awarded a Diploma from Cambridge English for each module successfully achieved. Achievement of a Pass in all three modules confers the status of a full Delta qualification.
