Delta is a course for teachers with significant and varied experience teaching English, who would to extend their development and possibly branch out into management or teacher training.

Picking the most suitable school for you involves a number of factors. You'll want to consider the location of the school (do you want to do the course nearby or as part of a trip abroad?), the dates of the courses it offers (some schools only offer courses during the summer, while others offer courses year-round) and the school's rating, which is based on reviews from verified graduates from each school.
All of reviews come from verified course graduates, confirmed with each school directly. Schools can not influence their graduates reviews, as they are completed directly with graduates after their course has concluded. Reviews are not accepted from external sources, including graduates who contact directly. All reviews are also moderated for potentially abusive or personally-identifying content.

Once you have decided to apply for a course, click the Apply Now button from the course's page, fill in the required information, and your application will be sent directly to the school. The school will then be responsible for all future communication.
