Online and blended short courses

We have combined our knowledge, experience and expertise from a team of effective teachers to create uniquely useful and inspiring courses for new teachers and teachers who want to refresh.
Teaching Writing in EAP coming soon and workshops when restrictions ease further.


We run the Distance Delta in collaboration with International House in London. Modules One and Three are completed with IH online; Module Two (relating to teaching practice) is completed with us online through a short, two-week Orientation Course and then at your place of work. Candidates can participate from anywhere in Australia, New Zealand or South East Asia.

The modules can be done in any order or all at once!

Next Orientation Course: March 15th – 26th 2021 from 10:30am – 5pm online in Zoom, Melbourne time plus self study time.

Here’s what recent DELTA course participants have said:

“I was glad to do the DELTA OC at MTA because of the benefit and convenience of doing the face-to-face preparation locally. But most of all, the MTA trainers are so knowledgeable and experienced, their tuition and guidance opened up a whole range ideas about teaching that have really motivated my study. It was an excellent way to start the course! The classroom facilities are easy to use and included new teaching technologies for me to try. The students were diverse, friendly and eager to learn. A beautiful boutique school in a beautiful, accessible part of Melbourne. …The coffee is also excellent.”

“I feel that it has prepared me well for the DELTA – which was the purpose, so great. Atmosphere was generally supportive.”

H. Walker, DELTA Distance Orientation Course student, 27 Mar 2019

“I attended the DELTA Orientation Course at Melbourne Training Associates during March 2019. It was a very well run course, and Barbara and Nikki were excellent tutors. I would recommended taking your DELTA Orientation Course there without hesitation.”
R. Ingham, DELTA Distance Orientation Course student, 28 Mar 2019

Effective Professional Development Series

Effective Teaching PD is a series of best practice professional development and training workshops for English language teachers with a focus on effectively improving the standard of classroom teaching and student engagement. Workshops will run multiple times a year and feature speakers on topics in response to common teaching concerns.

Training Trainers

At MTA we have helped many experienced teachers develop their skills at designing inputs, delivering PD, observing teachers and giving feedback.  We have trained some excellent CELTA tutors.  We plan to continue to find suitable teachers who are passionate about training others.  Call us to have a chat about this opportunity.
