Delta trainees bonding with the practice students

Who knew our practice students would have to negotiate (in English!) how to build the tallest freestanding structure in 18 minutes using 20 sticks of spaghetti, one yard tape, one yard string and one marshmallow. Fun lessons ahead!

DELTA summer course

Our latest DELTA module two course started yesterday. As usual, every summer, the course is full. Yesterday, we had a number of input sessions designed to get the candidates off to a good start on the course. Today, they meet the students they’ll be teaching for the first time. All the candidates seem very enthusiastic and motivated and we’re all looking forward to a productive and rewarding five weeks.
