DELTA MODULE 2
Become a Cambridge DELTA Certified Teacher today!
Take the next step and become an Advanced Practitioner.
DELTA is a globally-recognised, advanced qualification for experienced English language teachers – accredited by Cambridge English, part of the University of Cambridge. It takes serious dedication, passion and a commitment to continued professional development, which is why the qualification is so highly-regarded across the world and attractive to educational institutions in the field.
There are three modules you must pass to be DELTA-qualified. Module 2 concentrates on developing your professional practice
Although the course is part-time, it is very intensive. You should ensure that you have the strength, space and mental capacity to take on the challenge. For Module 2, it is essential that you are teaching as your teaching practice will be assessed and this practical element will take place in your own place of work with your own students.
Important: Due to the ongoing restrictions caused by COVID-19, it is now possible to take Module 2 by teaching online or via remote assessment of face-to-face classes – it is not currently necessary to be teaching face-to-face to complete Module 2.

OBSERVED AND ASSESSED TEACHING
Nominate a Regional Delta tutor.
For Module 2 (Online), you must nominate a local trainer who can observe and assess your teaching practice. It is critical that you identify a suitable regional Delta tutor (RDT), as you will not be able to undertake the module otherwise. You can nominate:
An already approved experienced Cambridge Delta tutor
Someone who is already a Bell-accredited RDT
Someone who has the appropriate experience and skills to be able to become a Bell-accredited RDT
If you can not find a suitable RDT, you may want to consider our Module 2 (Face-to-face) course at Bell Cambridge, where an RDT is provided.
