Who is our Blended DELTA course for?

Doing the DELTA is on many development-minded teachers' to-do lists. It's a world-recognised teaching qualification and is the key to accessing exciting career opportunities in teaching, training and management.

However, teaching is a demanding job and often teachers just can´t find the time in their busy schedules to attend the regular face-to-face classes and teaching practice that are required by part-time and full-time Delta courses. The blended DELTA course at IH Barcelona offers the solution to this problem by allowing teachers to follow a specially designed programme of distance study and learning helping them attain both Module 1 and Module 2 accreditation from Cambridge.

There are no compromises with the blended Module 1 & 2 DELTA, with the online phase offering the very best of both face-to-face and online training worlds - flexible enough so that you can participate and study when you have time during the week but also giving you the chance to be part of a group of teachers sharing ideas, helping each other find solutions to problems and working towards a common goal.

The face-to-face teaching phase gives you the time and space to focus on your assessed teaching in a supportive, dynamic and rewarding teaching environment bringing together everything you have learned in the online phase.
