Diploma in English Language Teaching (Delta Modules)

Delta Modules can be taken at any stage in a teacher's career. They are suitable for in-service teachers of English in a variety of teaching contexts e.g. adult, primary, or secondary teaching contexts, and are intended for an international audience of non-first language or first language teachers of English.

The modular framework aims to provide an accessible professional development programme with flexible entry points. Candidates may choose to do any or all of the modules and have the opportunity to focus on a specialist area of teaching in Modules Two and Three. Each module is assessed independently and is separately certificated. Achievement of a Pass in all three modules confers the status of a full Delta qualification.
 

Module One - Understanding Language, Methodology and Resources for Teaching (20 credits).
This module focuses on the background to teaching and learning English in a range of contexts.
 

Module Two - Developing Professional Practice (20 credits).
This module tests knowledge of the elements of planning and preparing a lesson or a sequence of lessons and how to select and use resources and materials.
 

Module Three - Extending practice and English language teaching specialism (20 credits).
This module tests knowledge of classroom management and what happens in the classroom in terms of the language used by the teacher or learners, the roles of the teacher can fulfil and the ways in which the teacher can manage classroom events and interaction.
