DELTA MODULE 1
Content and format
Our DELTA Module 1 preparation course is a fully online part-time course, with weekly synchronous sessions (meetings with the trainer and the other candidates) on the weekend.
This is a 10-week course with weekly sets of exam practice. Each set receives detailed personalized written feedback from the trainer, including suggestions for development and tips on how to improve performance on the exam. Candidates have a chance to implement these suggestions by practicing the same tasks again in order to check their progress.
In addition to this, candidates are supported and given the opportunity to present research on specific topics to the rest of the group.
Synchronous (live) input takes place every weekend, broken down into three 1-hour sessions.
Session one: We will troubleshoot issues from previous practices and / or set up upcoming practice tasks, providing tips and strategies for approaching the tasks.
Session two: The focus here is on specific exam tasks and strategies.
Session three: We finish up with a workshop in which course participants present and receive feedback on their research.

" My name is Oksana and I started teaching English as a foreign language in 1999. Since then I have had experience in teaching a range of English language courses, from General English, to Business English, Soft Skills and a variety of exam classes. I have also worked as an academic manager and consultant in education. I became a teacher trainer in 2009 and since then have worked on full time, part time and online courses in Ukraine, Ecuador, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Singapore, China, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, Spain and Poland.
The best thing about teacher training is the people you get to meet – colleagues, teachers and learners – from all types of backgrounds! Between the teacher training courses I enjoy teaching regular classes, which helps me to continuously reflect on my own beliefs about teaching and learning as well as understand and relate to the challenges that other teachers might have. I actually think you can only be a good trainer if you are still a teacher, passionate about teaching and have an interest in the psychological aspects of education as well as methodology. In my free time I love reading and learning about different cultures and history. "
