Cambridge programmes and qualifications
Cambridge programmes and qualifications are carefully designed to engage your students and give them solid foundations to achieve high levels of academic and personal attainment. The programmes are progressive, giving you and your students a clearly defined path to success from 5 to 19 years. Our four stages lead seamlessly from primary to secondary and pre-university years, and each stage builds on the learners’ development from the previous one. We offer flexibility, allowing you to shape Cambridge curricula to the needs and abilities of your students. You can offer programmes and qualifications for learners at every stage, or focus on specific ones. Our programmes and qualifications are compatible with other curricula, so you are free to build a unique curriculum that suits your school’s values. And you will have the expertise and support of Cambridge alongside you. We offer comprehensive support in four areas, designed carefully around the needs of Cambridge learners and teachers: • Curriculum: develops learners’ knowledge, understanding and skills. Our curriculum sets clear goals for learners and teachers. • Classroom: support and guidance helps teachers and learners perform to their maximum ability. We offer world-class teacher and learner resources. • Qualifications: provide learners with a global passport to success. We offer reliable, rigorous and flexible assessment, leading to internationally recognised qualifications. • Community: brings Cambridge schools, teachers and learners closer together through the sharing of best practice and ideas.
