English Teacher Article DELTA or Master's Degree?

| | Comments (2) | TrackBacks (0)

When I looked at which basic ELT qualifications employers were looking for, someone suggested doing the same for more senior positions.  I decided to separate managerial roles from university positions, and here I have just looked at managerial positions, starting from Assistant Director of Studies (ADOS) and moving up.

41 (about 76%) of the jobs specified it as an essential qualification, and 9 (about 17%) wanted either the DELTA or a Master's degree, but only 4 (about 7%) only specified an MA.  Therefore, it seems that if you want to move into ESL management, the DELTA may be the qualification to go for at the moment.


I looked at jobs advertised on tefl.com.  The sample size (54) was smaller than in the entry level survey because there are fewer positions, but they did cover positions around the world.

I agree with you that if someone want to move to esl management should take DELTA qualification.

I was surprised at the dominance of the DELTA- it has really made a comeback.
