Teacher training and development


Join a global community of teachers and gain a reputable qualification.

The Delta qualification is the most highly regarded and globally recognised teaching qualification.

There are three modules you must pass to become Delta-qualified. Module 1 focuses on understanding language, methodology and resources for teaching.

This intensive face-to-face course will prepare you for the final exam through personalised 1-to-1 feedback, detailed exam practice (including a full mock exam with feedback on each exam question), and personalised support from your tutor and peers.

At Bell, we go the extra mile, so our support does not stop outside the classroom.  Our tutors are on hand at any point during the course to support your self-study time.

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.
Karen Luna
In comparison to another course I took before, this was very well organised and the tutor was really great. I'm grateful for her feedback and for having the opportunity to work with her.

Course overview

  • Develop your awareness of theoretical perspectives on language acquisition and language teaching
  • Develop your knowledge of different ELT teaching approaches and methodologies, including emerging developments

Through varied tasks, sometimes in groups, you will cover:

  • Theoretical perspectives on language acquisition and language teaching
  • Different approaches and methodologies including current developments
  • Language systems and learners’ linguistic problems

Practice makes perfect

During the course, you will have dedicated time to prepare and practise exam tasks in addition to completing a mock exam. This is an excellent indicator that will inform our regular discussions with you about your areas of strength and areas where your exam performance needs particular focus. You will receive individual, constructive and useful feedback and advice from our most experienced Delta tutors.

This way, we can ensure you always have clear and relevant objectives throughout the course, and ultimately have the best chance of success when sitting the exam.
