Teaching & learning
Collaboration and reflection are key to effective learning. Under the guidance of an experienced Cambridge tutor, teachers work together to develop their understanding and share ideas and experiences. Our tutor-guided courses are offered at Introductory, Extension and Enrichment levels.
Teachers should expect to spend 3 - 5 hours a week on their course.
Introductory Training is for teachers who are new to Cambridge programmes and qualifications. It introduces teachers to Cambridge programmes, syllabuses and curriculum frameworks and enables them to teach our syllabuses with greater confidence. We strongly recommend this training to teachers who are new to Cambridge International or new to a specific qualification.
Extension Training is for teachers who have some experience of teaching Cambridge programmes and qualifications. The training in this area enables teachers to engage with our syllabuses and curriculum frameworks in greater depth and build confidence in their delivery.
Enrichment Professional Development is for teachers and school leaders who have been teaching or implementing Cambridge programmes and qualifications for at least a year and would like to develop their practice in specific areas. This level of training encourages teachers to reflect on and take greater responsibility for their teaching, as well as become more innovative in their classroom practice.
