Course Description

The Cambridge DELTA Diploma is a professional qualification at post-graduate level (a Level 7 Qualification according to the British Curriculum Authority) and is one of the most sought after and well respected qualifications internationally. It is recognised by all British Universities and is fast becoming a prerequisite for some of the most interesting jobs in our field all over the world.

The course is ideal for experienced and qualified teachers wishing to enhance their career opportunities as Senior Teachers, ESP Instructors, Level Coordinators or Directors of Studies. The Diploma provides an excellent bridge for those who wish to pursue further academic qualifications related to TEFL at Masters level.

The Cambridge DELTA Diploma is widely recognised and valued by the profession and it is the first step to a career in TEFL which may have the classroom as its main focus but which may also take the holder into a number of other interesting directions, such as 

- materials writing
- academic management
- teacher training
- editing EFL materials
- promoting EFL materials 

The course is organised around three modules, each of which is assessed separately. During the last module (Module III) candidates may focus on an area of specialism from a wide range of topics (e.g., Young Learners, ESP, Exam Classes, and many more: a full list is available on request). but
covers other needs and age groups of interest to each candidate as well.

Who can attend a DELTA course?

Applicants must have experience of classroom teaching experience at a variety of levels. Please note that the DELTA is no longer a qualification for teaching adult classes. Your experience may have been with

  • young and very young learners
  • teenagers
  • young adults
  • adults
  • business/professional English groups
  • academic English groups

Applicants must already hold a first degree in English or have appropriate qualifications which allow them to teach in their country; in addition, they should have attended a teacher training programme such as a CELTA, COTE or a Certificate in TEFL.

It is entirely at each centre's discretion to examine and accept each candidate on an individual basis according to their background, experience, training and potential and exceptions can sometimes be made based on an overall evaluation of each candidate's knowledge, experience and potential to be successful.

Selection is made on the basis of

1.   Classroom teaching experience as described above
2.   Educational background & evidence of TEFL training
3.   A Language and Methodology pre-course examination
4.   A personal interview with the Course Tutor.

Course Options at CELT Athens:

We offer two types of courses. Please click on each option to visit the information page and decide which is more suited to your needs and your schedule.

An intensive 8-week face-to-face course in Athens. All input and teaching assessments take place during the 8 weeks of the course

A part time 24-week online/blended course with input online and teaching assessments in Athens.

The courses offered by CELT are integrated and cover all three modules within attendance dates.

Each candidate must undertake an independent programme of preparation study prior to the course. After the end of the course, candidates will continue contact with their tutor for the completion of the write up of their Module 3 assignment work, but this is not face-to-face and is done online and via email. 

Important note: To run a course a minimum of six participants is required.
