All Modules Online Part time Delta

All Modules Fully Online PT Course

Αn integrated course taught by distance with Module 2 teaching assessments online

We offer two such courses every year, one beginning in the fall and one in the winter term.

This course option is ideal for working teachers who

  • cannot get away for the 6 or 8 weeks of an intensive course
  • prefer a part time course which allows them to work and study
  • prefer a synchronous course in which they have direct contact with tutors in live class via video and audio.

Our online live classroom is fully interactive with audio and video available for every single trainee, not just for the tutor, and training is in synchronous mode.

In our live classroom, you can talk, chat and interact, do group work and collaborative activities just as if you were in our physical classroom.

Course Organisation

Online for the first 24 weeks 

The online course is a part-time one and covers input for Modules 1 & 2 as well as introductory sessions for many of the Module 3 options within attendance dates, but candidates may choose to take each Module separately.

Input is via webinars in our high-tech online classroom. Four 90-minute sessions are taught every week over two days. Times vary from course to course depending on participants’ time zones.

The last two weeks of every course are dedicated to exam preparation for the Module 1 Written Exam.  These last two weekends are usually offered near exam dates

During the online input section of the course, all candidates are expected to write their background assignments and fulfil their course obligations – attendance, studying, writing, participation and discussions.

N.B. With the temporary Cambridge guidelines allowing Module 2 teaching assessments observed either remotely or in an online classroom, these will be also done during the duration of the 24 weeks) . 

The online part of the course offers full preparation for Modules 1 & 2. Nearer the Module 1 exams, a special Exam Primer mini course is offered to our candidates.

In the last few weeks of the course, a number of Module 3 specialisms is also introduced as well as a number of Module 3 assignment core subjects such as Needs Analysis, Testing, Syllabus Design and Course Planning & Evaluation. Each candidate is given more individual tutorial time and further support during the writing of their chosen specialism assignment.

Teaching Assessments  

During their course, candidates have to:

  1. teach a diagnostic lesson  (unassessed )  and four assessed lessons, the last one seen by an external Cambridge assessor
  2. observe 10 hours of lessons – some on video, most live
  3. teach an Experimental  lesson and report on its success
  4. complete and submit all written assignments (4 essays and a professional development assignment)

Module 1 written exams can be taken in Athens or at centres approved by Cambridge in the candidate’s own country.

Module 3 assignments can be started during or right after the course ends. We are very flexible but all three modules must be completed within two academic years from the start date of the course.

Platforms used

  • Our online course provision is offered via webinars in an online classroom, in which candidates attend live synchronous sessions with their course tutors and fellow course participants. The input sessions, workshops and tutorials cover the syllabus of all three modules in an integrated fashion.
  • The tutor and participants use webcams and microphones as well as text chat, and the VLE is equipped with whiteboards, ability to see handouts, powerpointpresentations, videos, shared screens and send and receive audio and video.
  • Candidates can also interact with each other in the webinar room and in special workshop rooms called ‘breakout rooms’ where they can discuss, have workshops and plan/design just as if they were in a the same physical classroom at CELT!

Our candidates are also supported through

  • A course dedicated resources website, PBworks.  This acts as a repository for all resources needed for the trainees to study for their course.
  • A course dedicated communication platform, Schoology, for discussions, uploading of assignments, feedback on drafts and much more!
  • A closed Facebook group to help network with all our other international candidates, be invited to observe live or live-streamed lessons delivered at CELT (with our candidates’ permission, of course). This is also where we post jobs sent to our centre asking to connect with our candidates or alumni.
