The Cambridge Delta 

The Diploma – Status & Recognition

The Cambridge DELTA Diploma is a professional qualification  at level 7 as regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) on the Qualifications and Credit Framework and given premium product endorsement by NEAS in Australia.  

It is postgraduate in level and although it is not a Masters on its own, most UK universities will give Delta holders exemptions and credits on their MA courses related to the subject of teaching English, Linguistics or Applied Linguistics. You can view the list  of exemptions on several UK M.A. programmes hereIn the Cambridge Teaching Qualifications Framework, the Delta is at the level of Proficient to Expert Teacher.

Career development value

After the CELTA, the Cambridge Delta is one of the most sought after and well-respected qualifications internationally. It is recognised by all British Universities and is fast becoming a prerequisite for some of the most interesting jobs in our field all over the world.  DELTA holders find themselves eligible for more interesting careers including positions as Directors of Studies, Level Coordinators and Teacher Trainers.

The three Modules 

The course is organised around three modules, each of which is assessed separately. Our centre offers courses which integrate all three modules but also courses for candidates who prefer to study one module at a time.

Module 1 assessed via a 3-hour written exam
Module 2 assessed via 5 assignments including background essays and teaching assessment
Module 3 assessed via an extended course planning assignment or an innovation proposal for a school

You can download the DELTA Handbook for all three Modules from the Cambridge website.
