What types of face-to-face training do Cambridge offer?

Our syllabus-specific training help teachers to develop their understanding of Cambridge programmes and qualifications. 

Introductory courses

Introductory courses are designed for teachers who are new to or inexperienced in teaching Cambridge syllabuses and require advice and support in getting started in their schools.

Course content

Content will vary for each syllabus, but typically includes:

  • overview of syllabus design and examination 
  • provide detailed knowledge of examination papers, marking procedures and standards 
  • introduction to Cambridge published and endorsed resources 
  • ICT and curriculum resources 
  • provide a forum to share good practice.

Interactive activities:

  • hands on marking activities relating to standards
  • a practical session may also be included.

Intermediate courses

Intermediate 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 training before taking an intermediate course.
