Full Time






There are input sessions from 9.00 till 13.30 each day (Monday - Friday), then you will probably want to stay on and work with your project groups in the afternoons.


When you decide you are ready to enter the exam there is a Cambridge exam fee of 175 GBP (exam +invigilation) for our candidates taking the exam in Istanbul, but if you sit the exam as our candidate at a different centre, you have to ask that centre what they charge for invigilation.
The exam is held on the first Wednesday in June and the first Wednesday in December each year.

Delta is a flexible, three-module qualification for people with experience of teaching English to speakers of other languages who want to progress further in their careers. Because it is awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment, part of the University of Cambridge, Delta is internationally recognised, highly respected and a benchmark for quality.

Module 1 (the exam) focuses on extending and developing candidates’ knowledge and understanding of teaching and learning English in a range of contexts.

Module 2 (teaching practice) focuses on developing awareness and expertise in the principles and professional practice of teaching English in a range of contexts.

Module 3 (course design) focuses on needs analysis, syllabus design, course planning and assessment.

The three modules can also be taken separately and are separately certificated.

The three modules of Delta will:

  • extend your knowledge and understanding of the principles and practice of English language teaching
  • encourage you to critically examine your current beliefs and practices as a teacher
  • help you apply your new knowledge and understanding to your current teaching role
  • extend your knowledge of English language teaching in contexts other than adult learners
  • develop your career by allowing you to apply for more senior roles.

This qualification is for teachers with some experience who want to:

  • build on their initial English teaching qualification and progress further in their career
  • extend their professional knowledge, develop their skills and apply these to different teaching contexts
  • take on new and challenging responsibilities in their teaching careers
  • demonstrate a commitment to the profession and prove their ability
  • examine their existing practices and beliefs.

The Cambridge Delta is recognised and accepted all over the world by organisations employing English language teachers. All three modules are separately accredited by Ofqual, the regulator for qualifications, exams and tests in England at Level 7 on the National Qualifications Framework for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Delta modules can also be integrated into some MA programmes in the UK.

Cambridge say that people entering the course will normally have at least two years' full-time relevant teaching experience, a first degree, an initial teaching qualification, a range of teaching experience, and a sufficient level of English. As the wording suggests, these are not absolute requirements. In practice, though, course providers are quite precious about their pass rates and so often impose their own requirements (such as a longer period of teaching experience) on people applying to take the course through them. Having taken part in a lot of professional development is probably the most useful thing for actually passing the course.

Istanbul is a major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Its Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled here. In the Sultanahmet district, the open-air, Roman-era Hippodrome was for centuries the site of chariot races, and Egyptian obelisks also remain. The iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century dome and rare Christian mosaics.

Course Feedback

I didn't rate the facilities and the location since it was an online CELTA course. Liz and Zahra, the tutors, were great. They provided the course participants with such practical and specific feedback that I learned much more from them than from other in-service trainings or PD events. The Moodle platform could benefit from an upgrade. Including more examples or sample work for the assignments would be very helpful. The assignments part of the course, in particular, was the most disappointing part. The CELTA course was overall very beneficial. Thank you so much, ITI!

, CELTA student,

The tutors were understanding and helpful throughout the course. Being observed and receiving feedback for my lessons and assignments was a valuable experience. I also found many of the things I learned throughout the course to be useful and have practical value.

, CELTA student,

In general, the course is productive. The input sessions and the tutors are all great but the tutors should focus on the exam practice in the sessions rather than spending too much time on theoretical parts. We didn’t have much practice for the exam. Also, information flow was problematic towards the end of the course. We couldn’t receive any email about weekly lesson planning from the tutors. They replied our emails very late. Additionally, some instructions in exam practices were ambiguous and it affected our scores. Lastly, some of the links in the documents and on Moodle are inaccessible since they are not working any longer. They should be updated.
