Only the first week is intensive while the rest of the work is spread out for your convenience. Below is the schedule.

There are plenty of advantages of the part-time mode:

1) There is an opportunity to complete teaching practice in a familiar environment with familiar students

2) More time to do research, plan and complete written work

3) More processing and reflection time

4) A more flexible timetable and an opportunity to negotiate the assessment dates

5) A flexible timetable for feedback, consultations and tutorials

6) An opportunity to study without taking time off your regular work or giving up your family commitments

7) Immediate implementation of the course input in your classroom

8) A more convenient payment scheme

 

Challenges of the part-time mode:

1) Staying focused and motivated is harder on a longer course

2) Requires good time management

 

If you are a CELTA(or equivalent) qualified teacher with 2+ years of post-CELTA experience seeking further professional development, this course might be ideal for you.

 

Selection procedure:

1) Request, complete and send back an application form t-training@bkc.ru

About Delta Modules:

Delta (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is a widely recognised qualification which helps you build better teaching practice and can lead to greater rewards and more career opportunities.

The Delta offers candidates who have substantial experience of teaching English to adult speakers of other languages the opportunity to:

  • Acquire new insights into this area and a deeper understanding of the principles and practice of ELT to adults;
  • Examine their current practices and beliefs;
  • Apply the results of their learning and reflection to their current professional lives and to circumstances beyond their present and previous teaching experience.

There are three assessed components for the Delta: separate certification will be awarded for each.

Delta Modules FAQ:

Can I take Delta if I have a Russian pedagogical degree and 20-year teaching experience?

Yes, you can take Delta Modules One and Three. To apply for Module Two course to our Centre you are expected to have an international TEFL certificate (CELTA, Trinity CertTESOL etc) and a minimum of two years of full-time post-CELTA/Trinity CertTESOL/IHC teaching experience.

Do I have to take all three modules?

No. You can choose to enter for a single module or any combination of modules. Each module is separately certificated so you receive credit for each module successfully completed.

Can the modules be taken in any order?

While you can choose to take the modules in any order, Modules Two and Three assume you have the knowledge and competences gained in the previous module(s) so for most candidates the most practical order will be from Module One through to Module Three.


Can I take all three modules at the same time?

Yes. Some centres may deliver Delta as a single course (all three modules being run concurrently by a centre). However, the distribution of content across the three modules allows centres the flexibility of offering individual modules or combinations of modules if you do not want or need to complete them all.


Do I have to complete all three modules within a specific time?

No. There is no time limit for completion of all three modules.


Can I retake modules?

Yes. There is no limit on the number of times you can take a module. For Module Three, there is an option to resubmit an assignment. If it fails again a new topic needs to be chosen.


Do I have to take a course for each module?

Attendance on a course is only necessary for Module Two so that practice can be directly assessed. You can enter for Modules One and Three without taking a course.


Will I get an overall Delta qualification if I pass all the modules?

Yes. You are awarded a certificate for each Delta module you pass. Achievement of a Pass in all three modules confers the status of a full Delta qualification. An overall Delta certificate will be awarded if you submit evidence of a Pass in all three modules.
