DELTA Module 2 helps you to develop your professional practice as a teacher by focussing on:

• Working with language learners in a variety of contexts
• Preparing for teaching
• Evaluating and selecting resources for teaching
• Evaluating your lesson planning and lesson delivery
• Observation and evaluation of other teachers’ lessons
• Ongoing professional development

DELTA Module 2 is a programme designed by you and your personal tutor. As part of the course you will need to complete 5 assignments (essay + lesson) and a diagnostic lesson. Given the background work around each lesson, it is important that you space out lessons sensibly, so that you can devote enough time to each of them. This also allows you time for reflection and further development. You will need to put together a work plan at the beginning of the course.

Further Information

It is recommended that a DELTA Module 2 candidate should EITHER be a graduate OR have a previous teaching qualification (e.g. CELTA), plus at least TWO years’ full-time teaching experience (i.e. 1,200 hours) within the past five years. Ideally, this teaching experience should include a range of levels and contexts. It is also recommended that the candidate has successfully completed DELTA Module 1.
NB: Candidates may still be accepted who do not strictly meet the entry criteria but who demonstrate they would be capable of completing the course successfully. Decisions on entry are at NILE’s discretion.

Even though it is part time, the course is intensive and requires full commitment. It is important that you complete the tasks and assignments on time.

Please note that all the DELTA Modules are subject to Cambridge Assessment's guidelines on plagiarism for Module 3.

In addition, you will be asked to confirm that you have read and understood NILE’s Statement of Originality.

All course input will be provided at the beginning of the course, guiding you through the necessary steps to work on assignments.

You need a local tutor in place before you start DELTA Module 2. This may be someone who observes you face to face or watches your lessons online.  Please discuss this with us prior to application.

Please be aware that candidates are liable for any External Assessor’s travel expenses to reach the country of assessment in the case of face-to-face external assessment.

*Please note: The Courier and Cambridge assessment fee covers NILE’s administration costs for making the exam entry, but not any local administration/invigilation fees charged by host centres if the exam is not sat at NILE.
