Following a comprehensive review, the DELTA course comprises now three Modules, which replace the syllabus from September 2008.
Please see below information taken from the Cambridge website and feel free to follow the links for a detailed and comprehensive description of the course. Here is a summary of the benefits as listed on the Cambridge website:
Flexible entry points for candidates; The Delta Modules can be taken in stages over a period of time that can fit with career and other commitments; Opportunity to focus on specialist teaching, e.g. teaching young learners, business English; More flexible delivery, e.g. blended learning options; Individual modules can be taken as part of a programme of continuous professional development (CPD); Certificates for partial achievement, e.g. development as general English teacher.
Key questions and answers which explain how the modular structure works and how the revised version differs from current DELTA.
