Delta Module Three course – online
What is Delta Module Three?
There are two options for this module:
• Option 1 – ELT specialism
You will select your own specialist subject and then produce an assignment about needs analysis, syllabus design, course planning and assessment for a real group of learners in the context of your selected specialism. Possible specialisms include teaching younger learners, business English, one-to-one, ESP, EAP, and many others.
• Option 2 – ELT management
This module focuses on situation analysis and planning, and implementing change in the context of a selected management specialism.
Both options require you to produce an extended written assignment of 4,000–4,500 words, which is submitted to Cambridge for assessment. Module Three assignments can be submitted twice a year, in June and December.
When can I take a course?
We offer an extended online course twice a year. There's a spring course which prepares candidates for the June submission date, and an autumn course for the submission in December. The course lasts 10 weeks.
What are the dates for the online courses in 2017?
Spring start dates: 6 March, 13 March, 20 March, 27 March 2017
Autumn start dates: 4 September, 11 September, 18 September, 25 September 2017
If these dates don't suit you, we may be able to organise an 'on demand' course starting at another time. Please ask!
What's the course fee?
It's 350 GBP, with a discount of 50 GBP for participants who have previously done a CELTA or Delta module course at our centre.
There's also a Cambridge entry fee, currently 90 GBP, payable via the centre where you submit your assignment.
How is the course organized?
We will assign you a tutor with specialist knowledge in your chosen area, with whom you will communicate online. Your tutor's role will be to guide you in making decisions and provide you with informed feedback on the various parts of your assignment. Here's a breakdown of what you can expect from the course:
Stage 1 – Initial guidance
Discussion with your tutor on possible areas, feedback from the tutor on your proposals.
Stage 2 – Outline
The tutor will provide feedback on your outline of the assignment (table of contents, types of needs analysis and tests to be used, proposed reading material, etc.).
Stage 3 – First draft
You can either submit a draft of the whole assignment for feedback from your tutor, or you can submit one section at a time, which allows you to read your tutor's feedback on one section before starting on the next. The feedback will aim to make sure you are meeting the Cambridge criteria.
Stage 4 – Final draft
You can submit a final draft and receive feedback on this from your tutor. The feedback here is usually more general in nature but once again will primarily aim to ensure your assignment meets the Cambridge criteria.
