Online 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 or new to a specific qualification.
Introductory courses are 5 weeks long and focus on the following:
Teachers should expect to spend 3 - 5 hours a week on the course.
Successful completion of these courses is based on participation in collaborative activities with teachers from around the world. Discussions and activities each week are in groups. You don't need to be online at a particular time of day for our online courses, but we recommend that teachers access the courses every day. A certificate is awarded to participants who complete key weekly activities and participate fully in discussions throughout the course. Tutors will mark activities completed in the week that they are set. To help you manage your time and aid collaboration, we provide clear guidelines of which days to carry out the activities for each week..
