The Cambridge AS & A Level Thinking Skills syllabus has been updated. Learners will develop transferable skills including critical thinking, reasoning and problem solving. Learners can apply these skills across a wide range of subjects and complex real world issues, equipping them for progression to higher education or directly into employment. We have worked with schools to test the new syllabus and made changes based on their feedback.
This syllabus will help learners who want to develop transferable skills which support further subject-specific study. It is suitable for learners who want to enter employment or further study, or as a part of a course of general education.
This syllabus is available for teaching from September 2018. It will be assessed in June and November 2020, 2021 and 2022.
We are developing a comprehensive support package to help you deliver the new Cambridge International AS & A Level Thinking Skills syllabus. The resources will be available in March 2018 in time for first teaching and can be accessed through the Teacher Support site.
A choice of endorsed text books prepared by our Core Team Publishers will be available to support teaching.
Please see our events and training calendar for details about online and face to face courses to support those teaching this syllabus.
