Our approach is to provide teachers with access to a wide range of high-quality resources that suit different styles and types of teaching and learning.
We endorse resources that support our international programmes and qualifications in the Cambridge Pathway. For many of our programmes and qualifications, we have more than one endorsed title, allowing our schools to choose from a range of materials to meet their needs. Endorsement of a resource does not mean it is the only suitable material available, that it is an official resource or that it is required to achieve the qualification.
Endorsed resources go through a detailed and independent quality assurance process to make sure they closely reflect the syllabus or curriculum framework and provide a good basis for teachers when planning and delivering their teaching. The endorsement process also makes sure that resources are accessible and culturally appropriate for Cambridge schools worldwide.
We have an open endorsement policy, and any publisher can submit resources for endorsement. The endorsement process is managed by the Publisher Relations team.
The team works closely with our Cambridge publishing team, Collins, Hodder Education and Marshall Cavendish Education. These publishers receive early information of our new and revised programmes and qualifications so they can plan and develop resources to support them. When our new and revised syllabuses publish in September, visit the syllabus page to find details of forthcoming endorsed resources to support them.
We charge publishers a fee for reviewing their materials. Resources are evaluated by specialists who are involved in the development and delivery of assessments for our programmes and qualifications.
Resources that meet our endorsement criteria are listed on our website. To find endorsed resources for your subject, visit the following pages:
Our Guide to Endorsed Resources (PDF, 277KB) and Working with publishers document (PDF, 96KB) provides further details.
Endorsed resources will have an endorsement logo on the front cover and will include an information panel on the back cover. For digital materials this panel is typically found within the introductory pages.
We endorse resources for either full syllabus coverage (e.g. Student’s Books, etc.), learner support (e.g. Workbooks, etc.) and for teacher support (e.g. Teacher’s Resources).
We do not endorse revision guides or exam preparation material.
The information panel provides details of which syllabus version is supported, helping you to understand how the resource can support your teaching.

We only endorse resources from recognised publishers. Authors should only contact us through their publishers.
