Face-to-Face – completed over 8 weeks
Please read the General Introduction to the DELTA first and come back to this page
The Intensive Course in Athens is a full-time course completed over 8 weeks and offered in the summer, fall and winter.
Cambridge Assessment Dates for Modules 1, 2 & 3
There are two exam sessions/periods for Modules 1 & 3, June & December – hence candidates attending summer courses will need to sit Module 1 exams in December or the following June at a centre near them.
There are three exam sessions for Module 2 , June, October & December
Workload during the 8-week course
During your 8 week course you will be
- attending seminars and workshops covering all three modules in an integrated fashion.
- working on your Module 2 assignments and lesson preparation
- teaching assessed and unassessed lessons
- studying towards your Module 1 written exam.
Module 3 assignment writing is usually done after the end of the 8 week course. During this stage, you will be assigned a supervising tutor who will support, review drafts and invite you to a number of online tutorials to support your writing.
Preference is given to teachers with recent and varied classroom teaching experience, related degrees and an initial training qualification such as the Cambridge CELTA. A language analysis and methods assessment is used as part of the selection process.
Here is some feedback from two of our recent (summer of 2016) candidates
