What is DELTA:

  • It is proof of your skills and expertise – at the same level as a Master’s study
  • It is a highly respected qualification from Cambridge English, part of the University of Cambridge
  • The course consists of three different modules that can be taken simultaneously or independently
  • Separate certification is awarded for each module

  • Once you have completed all three modules successfully you will become a qualified DELTA teacher
