DELTA Module 2

Developing Professional Practice (20 credits)

NILE TEFL Logo and Cambridge English Teaching Logo

DELTA Module 2 focuses on planning, delivering and evaluating lessons in relation to learner needs and the learning context. It is assessed via a portfolio of coursework, including internally assessed observed lessons, background written essays and an externally assessed lesson observation.

You will use your current teaching context for the completion of the portfolio and the observations will be spread out over the course. A significant amount of scheduled, time-sensitive, independent work will be needed to complete the portfolio.

According to Cambridge Assessment English, this Module aims to develop your ability in the following areas:

  • Working with language learners in a variety of learning contexts
  • Preparation for teaching learners of English
  • Evaluation, selection and use of resources and materials for teaching purposes
  • Managing and supporting learning
  • Evaluation of lesson preparation and teaching
  • Observation and evaluation of other teachers’ lessons
  • Professionalism and professional development

The ELTC is proud to be working in partnership with NILE - one of the world’s biggest providers of training and development for English language teachers - for Module 2. NILE provides the online content and online tutor and the ELTC provides the local tutor.

Please note you must have access to real learners for your teaching practice within 50 miles of Sheffield.
