DELTA Module Three

The DELTA Module 3 assessment focuses on designing a specialist course in a specific learning context. Candidates will need to demonstrate that they understand the principles of needs analysis, diagnostic assessment, syllabus design, course planning and course assessment. They will also need to demonstrate understanding of the key issues involved in their chosen area of specialism. Our Module 3 course will not only provide the required background knowledge, but it will also support and guide you in the process of drafting and redrafting your assignment.


This course is intended for experienced teachers who wish to prepare for the Cambridge DELTA Module 3 assessment, offered in June and December each year.

The course comprises 10 hours of input and approximately 25 hours of one-to-one tutorial and editorial work on each participant’s individual assignment.

You can start the course any time, but please bear in mind it will take at least 3-4 months to do the research and complete your assignment.

Delivery Mode

The course is delivered online and combines synchronous and asynchronous learning (Zoom and a moodle-based platform).
