Our approach is to provide teachers with access to a wide range of high-quality resources across the Cambridge Pathway that suit different styles and types of teaching and learning. We have an open endorsement policy, and any publisher can submit resources for endorsement.
We endorse resources for 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.
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.
Resources are evaluated by specialists who are involved in the development and delivery of assessments for our programmes and qualifications.
Resources are judged on the following criteria.
Approach & Content
The resources align with the level of demand in the syllabus and covers sufficient breadth and depth to promote effective teaching and learning.
The resources focus on knowledge and skills, rather than on exam preparation, whilst making sure that any assessment focused elements of the resources are accurate and suitable for the syllabus.
That resources are accessible and appropriate for Cambridge schools worldwide and demonstrate a commitment to equality, diversity, inclusion and belonging.
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.
The endorsement process is managed by the Publisher Relations team.
We work closely with several publishers who receive early information of our new and revised programmes and qualifications so they can plan and develop resources to support them. We charge publishers a fee for reviewing their materials. Publishers who are interested in submitting materials for consideration should email us. Note: we only endorse resources from recognised publishers. Authors should only contact us through their publishers.
When our new and revised syllabuses publish in September, visit the syllabus page to find details of forthcoming endorsed resources to support them.
Resources that meet our endorsement criteria are listed on our website. To find endorsed resources for your subject, visit the following pages
Further information about the endorsement process and endorsed resources can be found in our Resources endorsed for the Cambridge Pathway (PDF, 235KB) document.
Endorsed resources will have the endorsement logo on their front cover. For digital materials the logo will be in an appropriately visible place.
Resources that have our old endorsement logo are still endorsed and remain endorsed until a new edition is published.
Resources without either of these logos have not been through Cambridge International Education’s endorsement process meaning that they may not support our syllabuses fully or appropriately.
Endorsed resources have an information panel that provides details of which syllabus version is supported and what type of endorsement the resource is endorsed for (e.g., full syllabus coverage, learner, or teacher support) to help you understand how the resource supports you with your teaching.
Endorsed resources have an Endorsement Statement (PDF, 235KB) that informs customers about endorsement. The endorsement statement will be located within the introductory pages of the resource.
