How the Cambridge trainer was made
Earlier this month, we held our first teacher trainer recruitment events in mainland China and Hong Kong. The selection process went well and we were able to invite the shortlisted candidates to participate in further workshops in Beijing and Shanghai. Our approach to training supports teachers to become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. Becoming a Cambridge trainer also offers teachers fantastic professional development opportunities.
We have a rigorous teacher trainer recruitment process: In addition to meeting our high standards, Chinese teachers also have to work hard to overcome the language barrier if English is not their first language. We also expect all our teacher trainers to embrace innovative teaching styles and personal professional development. We hold high expectations of our new trainers in China and believe they will be great examples for aspiring teachers throughout East Asia.
What does it take to become a Cambridge trainer?
All candidates need to have experience in teaching Cambridge programmes and qualifications, and they should have a BA/BSc (Honours) degree in the subject which they are teaching. Candidates who would like to advance to leading the Extension Training and Enrichment Professional Development should be examiners in that particular subject area too. We also ask that all candidates in the Greater China region have proof of English language competency. For example, an IELTS score at 7 or above, a CAE certificate, a TOEFL score of 110 or above or any equivalent test.
In addition to the above, we also expect candidates to be familiar with the Cambridge educational ethos, full of good teaching ideas to share with other teachers and committed to developing their teaching practice before they can be recognised as an accredited Cambridge trainer.
The learning process doesn’t stop there though! During their first few training events, newly accredited trainers will be assessed by and receive coaching from senior Cambridge trainers. Another round of evaluation then takes place before the new trainers can train teachers on their own.
Trainers are supposed to attend Cambridge Trainers’ Conference and conduct self-learning online on a regular basis. Lead trainers will evaluate trainers regularly and set up improvement plans for them.
As the saying goes, 'Rome wasn’t built in a day'. Becoming a teacher trainer takes hard work and we are grateful to all our trainers who share their knowledge and expertise with other teachers.
