Further to my initial post....
Does anyone know anything about the Certificate in Advanced Studies in English Language Teaching offered by Aston University? It's a 9-12 month distance course in which you focus a lot on the practical aspect of your teaching and are given feedback on your classes which are videoed.

Would any employer looking for DELTA qualified candidates take this as an equal equivalent?
