Our syllabus-specific Professional Development help teachers to develop their understanding of Cambridge programmes and qualifications.
Our Introductory Professional Development helps teachers get started with our programmes, syllabuses and curriculum frameworks.
Teachers will typically learn about:
* Cambridge Assessment International Education
* the aims and structure of Cambridge programmes, syllabuses and curriculum frameworks
* assessment aims and objectives
* question papers, marking exercises and examiner feedback (only applicable for Cambridge Upper Secondary and Cambridge Advanced qualification Professional Development)
* progression tests, Cambridge Primary Checkpoint and Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint tests
* teaching ideas and approaches
* endorsed resources that are available to support teaching.
Extension courses are for teachers who have some experience of teaching Cambridge syllabuses and are looking for further help in their understanding of this area, as well as support in improving their classroom practice.
It is preferable, although not essential, that teachers have completed introductory Professional Development before taking an extension course.
* review syllabus and curriculum framework design and the assessment aims
* learn about any major updates to our syllabuses or curriculum frameworks
* extend their understanding of the assessment process through reviewing past question papers, marking exercises, examiner feedback as well as developing practice questions for Cambridge Upper Secondary and Cambridge Advanced qualifications.
* explore progression tests, Cambridge Primary Checkpoint and Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint
* create schemes of work and curriculum resources
* share a range of approaches to teaching and learning.
