Qualify with a Cambridge Certificate or Diploma

 The last few months have tested the whole of humanity and yet, teachers are still dedicated to learning and helping others learn! Our online courses have been very successful in maintaining the learning efforts of many teachers around the world as well as giving them new skills for the new era of remote teaching/online instruction which seems to be emerging because of the pandemic.

Following a Cambridge qualification course will help you with the new demands in our profession. Or, you may just need a top up course, such as learning Grammar in more depth, specialising in Teaching Young Learners or becoming an ELT manager, a position many Delta holders find themselves in. Have a look below and even if you cannot attend a course right now, keep in touch through our monthly webinars which are starting again in late August, and joining our vibrant communities on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn!
