The Distance DELTA is a unique programme for experienced English Language Teaching (ELT) professionals. Developed by International House London and the British Council, the programme prepares experienced teachers for the Cambridge Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults (DELTA).
The Distance DELTA is for practising teachers in the field of ELT who wish to upgrade their qualifications and are keen to develop their teaching skills. Designed for teachers who would like to continue working while they study, the Distance DELTA provides an alternative to intensive and part-time face-to-face courses.
As with any distance learning programme, it is important that you consider carefully if your own learning style and environment would make you an effective distance learner. To follow the Distance DELTA programme, you need to be able to dedicate a minimum of ten to 15 hours per week, over eight months, to DELTA-related work and you need to be able to work to set deadlines.
The Distance DELTA is an integrated programme which enables you to follow a DELTA course whilst still working in your school or institution. The eight month programme involves a two-week Orientation Course, run at International House London and in selected regional International House and British Council centres.
You will also need to complete a distance learning component, which covers all aspects of the Cambridge DELTA syllabus and assessment.
