About DELTA

Delta is a flexible, three-module qualification for people with experience of teaching English to speakers of other languages who want to progress further in their careers. Because it is awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment, part of the University of Cambridge, Delta is internationally recognised, highly respected and a benchmark for quality.

Module 1 (the exam) focuses on extending and developing candidates’ knowledge and understanding of teaching and learning English in a range of contexts.

Module 2 (teaching practice) focuses on developing awareness and expertise in the principles and professional practice of teaching English in a range of contexts.

Module 3 (course design) focuses on needs analysis, syllabus design, course planning and assessment.

The three modules can also be taken separately and are separately certificated.

The three modules of Delta will:

  • extend your knowledge and understanding of the principles and practice of English language teaching
  • encourage you to critically examine your current beliefs and practices as a teacher
  • help you apply your new knowledge and understanding to your current teaching role
  • extend your knowledge of English language teaching in contexts other than adult learners
  • develop your career by allowing you to apply for more senior roles.

This qualification is for teachers with some experience who want to:

  • build on their initial English teaching qualification and progress further in their career
  • extend their professional knowledge, develop their skills and apply these to different teaching contexts
  • take on new and challenging responsibilities in their teaching careers
  • demonstrate a commitment to the profession and prove their ability
  • examine their existing practices and beliefs.

The Cambridge Delta is recognised and accepted all over the world by organisations employing English language teachers. All three modules are separately accredited by Ofqual, the regulator for qualifications, exams and tests in England at Level 7 on the National Qualifications Framework for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Delta modules can also be integrated into some MA programmes in the UK.

Cambridge say that people entering the course will normally have at least two years' full-time relevant teaching experience, a first degree, an initial teaching qualification, a range of teaching experience, and a sufficient level of English. As the wording suggests, these are not absolute requirements. In practice, though, course providers are quite precious about their pass rates and so often impose their own requirements (such as a longer period of teaching experience) on people applying to take the course through them. Having taken part in a lot of professional development is probably the most useful thing for actually passing the course.

Course Feedback

It was a great experience. I have learned a lot of techniques that are perfectly applicable in actual classes. The tutors were great and supportive.

, CELTA Online student,

The second two weeks of the course were very challenging and it seemed that we were being trialed, not taught - I guess endurance is also a requirement to do the CELTA. The nature of the course itself is very intensive, so sometimes the organisation and the communication did not seem to help me feel that I was being supported the way I thought I would be when I chose IH Wroclaw. Nevertheless, as time passed by and I adjusted myself to the structure of the course and the tutors, especially the second one, who got to know me better, the course started to be much more exciting and enjoyable. Learning, practicing, and getting feedback were no longer an ordeal, but a constructive moment where I think we all enjoyed very much. That spurred me on to always do my best and excel in all teaching practices that were left. As a result, I think it is fair to say that this was of utmost importance to the success of the entire group.

, CELTA Online student,

The course was intensive and I had many sleepless nights, but I can honestly say that I have learnt loads and feel more confident as a teacher. I am also better equipped for teaching online (which is a huge bonus for me). The tutors were friendly, dedicated and supportive throughout the course. I couldn't ask for more! (Aug-Sept 2020, IH Wroclaw)
