Can you tell me about the Certificate in Teaching and Learning?

The Certificate requires candidates to submit one practice-based portfolio to Cambridge for assessment. The assignment consists of evidence of three practice, learning and reflection on these activities.

A Certificate programme requires 120 hours of preparation and should take candidates 3-4 months.

Teachers will be required to:

  • understand principles of learning and teaching and apply these principles to their own practice
  • articulate their own personal theory of learning
  • design coherent learning activities that focus on planning for active learning and teaching
  • use approaches to teaching and learning appropriately to help learners to learn more effectively
  • develop their reflective practice skills to help them evaluate and develop their own practice
  • learn collaboratively, supported by their colleagues. 

Candidates should be full or part-time teachers in an educational institution such as a school, college, university, or adult training centre. Candidates are required to be teaching in their current educational institution over the course of a full academic year, for a minimum 24 weeks and a minimum of six hours per week.
