Cambridge Professional Development Qualifications provide a strong framework to support effective professional development of teachers and leaders.
Teaching and learning
We ease the introduction of new education programmes by providing training for officials, teachers and examiners in curriculum development and assessment.
We provide capability-building courses for senior officers and selected examiners in item writing, standardisation and quality assurance of question papers and mark schemes. We also offer ongoing professional development to meet the needs of particular staff.
Courses are available in all aspects of the examination process including assessment administration, development of assessment instruments (e.g. data capture and management) and delivery of assessment. This ranges from the management of various types of question paper meetings to the issues involved in benchmarking and grading.
Governments around the world tell us how important support for teachers is to the education process. Teachers who are well supported are able to offer the best education possible and develop successful students.
We offer teachers an extensive programme including online training, face-to-face training, e-learning and training via video conference.
The Cambridge International Diploma in Teaching and Learning, a professional development qualification, is an increasingly popular means of effectively providing professional development in a national context.
We help governments to localise Cambridge examinations so that they can be managed by national authorities. We give support and guidance at every step.
We provide assessment and professional support during the transition as well as training for assessment staff, item writers and teachers.
Administrative and technical support during transition is also given, as well as help with benchmarking and maintaining standards. Cambridge has a strong track record in providing consultancy for curriculum and assessment changes to successfully meet education reform programmes.
Rapid change in global economy and domestic developments are putting increasing pressure on national education policies and practices worldwide.
To address these pressures our colleagues at Cambridge Assessment Network have developed a course for senior ministry and examining board officials. 'Leadership in National Assessment' is a one week residential programme that looks at assessment, education and society from a global perspective. To find out more and register, visit 'Leadership in National Assessment course'.
Individuals who work for an education body or an exams provider outside the UK and who want to expand their knowledge and skills in specific areas of assessment will benefit from the 'Cambridge International Study Programme'. This two week residential course provides a comprehensive overview of the processes and issues involved in the design and delivery of valid examinations, and is suitable for both professionals in managerial positions as well as operational staff.
