Did you know? The practical component for Delta M2 can be done online OR face-to-face.


Take the next step and become an Advanced Practitioner.

Delta is a globally-recognised, advanced qualification for experienced English language teachers – accredited by Cambridge English, part of the University of Cambridge. It takes serious dedication, passion and a commitment to continued professional development, which is why the qualification is so highly-regarded across the world and attractive to educational institutions in the field.

There are three modules you must pass to be Delta-qualified. Module 2 concentrates on developing your professional practice

Although the course is part-time, it is very intensive. You should ensure that you have the strength, space and mental capacity to take on the challenge. For Module 2, it is essential that you are teaching as your teaching practice will be assessed and this practical element will take place in your own place of work with your own students.

Important: Due to the on-going restrictions caused by COVID-19, it is now possible to take Module 2 by teaching online or via remote assessment of face-to-face classes – it is not currently necessary to be teaching face-to-face to complete Module 2.

I believe the online course was perfect for me as it allowed me to combine my studies with other commitments. Thanks to the work of my Online Personal Tutor (OPT) I received all the necessary support and help, despite it not being face-to-face.

Studying for the DELTA online is great because it gives you the freedom and flexibility to fit the reading around other commitments.

I was fairly experienced when I started but I realised that an experienced teacher is not the same as an expert teacher. So much of what I learned on the course still influences my teaching today.

Nominate a Regional Delta tutor.

For Module 2 (Online), you must nominate a local trainer who can observe and assess your teaching practice. It is critical that you identify a suitable regional Delta tutor (RDT), as you will not be able to undertake the module otherwise. You can nominate:

  • An already approved, experienced Cambridge Delta tutor
  • Someone who is already a Bell-accredited RDT
  • Someone who has the appropriate experience and skills to be able to become a Bell-accredited RDT

If you can not find a suitable RDT, you may want to consider our Module 2 (Face-to-face) course at Bell Cambridge, where a RDT is provided.
