You need at least one year’s experience to make the most of it, although many people take it after a number of year's experience in the classroom. If you are planning to progress into academic management a DELTA is a very good idea. In some schools it will be a prerequisite.

There are three modules, which you can take in any order.

DELTA Module 2

DELTA Module 2 is “Developing Professional Practice”.  It is assessed with a portfolio of coursework and assessed lesson observations. Topics covered are:

  • The learner and learning context
  • Preparing to teach
  • Using resources and materials in the classroom
  • Managing and supporting learning
  • Evaluating lesson planning
  • Observing lessons
  • Professional development

The other modules

Module 3 is independent research on either an ELT specialism or management.  It is assessed by a written dissertation.
