Cambridge Primary classroom support

Cambridge Primary offers high-quality support, including teaching materials and training to help you plan and deliver the programme.

Training and development

Cambridge Primary schools receive access to a free online introductory training course. The course enables an unlimited number of teachers to learn at their own pace over the first year.

We also offer tutor-led online training and face-to-face training, as well as professional development qualifications.

Teachers using the Cambridge Primary English as a Second Language curriculum framework can take the Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) provided by our sister organisation, Cambridge English Language Assessment. It aims to increase teachers' confidence and enhance job prospects by focusing on the core teaching knowledge needed by teachers of primary or secondary learners.

Teaching materials

Teaching materials available to Cambridge Primary schools include:

  • Teacher guides – these bring together schemes of work, sample lesson plans, planning and implementation guides
  • Resource lists – these include resources endorsed by Cambridge, recommended by Cambridge and suggested by teachers
  • Textbooks prepared by leading educational publishers.
