Teaching and learning
Cambridge creative and professional qualifications are perfect for learners who want to enter the world of work immediately, and would like to develop skills so that they are ready for the workplace.
These qualifications also provide a solid foundation for those who already have a career path in mind and would like to specialise while at school, before progressing to university to continue their education in their chosen field.
These qualifications are designed to build understanding of concepts as well as practical skills. They introduce learners to the theory and concepts that underpin the subjects as well as providing a good opportunity to engage with the subject practically. The syllabuses also develop wider skills for the workplace, sought by employers around the world, such as problem-solving, communication, team-work and creativity.
Widely recognised by the world’s best employers and universities, creative and professional qualifications provide learners with a global passport to success in the workplace, giving them better options in their education and career. Leading employers and universities throughout the world value and recognise Cambridge programmes, so learners can be sure that their qualifications will be welcomed locally and internationally.
Cambridge creative and professional qualifications are typically for learners aged 14 to 19 years, starting with Cambridge IGCSE® or Cambridge O Level and leading on to Cambridge International A Level.
