Cambridge International Certificate/Diploma in Teaching & Learning


The Certificate and Diploma are programs from the University of Cambridge International Examinations, UK, and designed to help teachers develop their professional practice, quality of teaching and learning.

They focus on the development of knowledge, skills and understanding in the key aspects of teaching and learning. They are inclusive and relevant to all teaching and learning contexts; from primary and secondary general education, to vocational education and training, to further, adult and higher education. They help teachers to explore and apply new ideas in their own context, integrate new approaches in their own practice, and demonstrate their professional development as reflective practitioners.


Teachers will have the opportunity to:

  • understand principles of learning and teaching and relate these critically to their own practice
  • critically engage with educational theory and research evidence to inform and develop their professional thinking
  • design coherent lessons and program that focus on planning for active learning and teaching
  • use a variety of approaches to teaching and learning appropriately to help learners to learn more effectively
  • develop their personal reflective practice skills enriched by ideas and experience from external sources
  • learn collaboratively, supporting and supported by their colleagues.


The Diploma comprises three modules:

Module 1   Exploring teaching and learning
Module 2   Teaching and learning in action
Module 3   Developing professional practice

The Cambridge Certificate is awarded upon successful completion of Module 1 and the Diploma upon subsequent completion of the next two modules.


In each module portfolio, candidates will use the relevant Cambridge templates to gather, organise and present their evidence to satisfy the assessment criteria.

The Diploma is designed so that candidates can demonstrate their professional thinking and practice as clearly and efficiently as possible.

The evidence required matches the learning outcomes. In their portfolio, candidates provide evidence of their:

  • Practice − actual teaching practice.
  • Learning − newly acquired knowledge, skills and understanding.
  • Reflection − skills in analysing, synthesising and evaluating their experiences to develop their future professional practice.

These are presented as written assignments along with portfolio of evidence.  Candidates shall have to write three assignments, one for each module. To obtain the complete Diploma qualification, candidates shall have to attain at least a pass in each of the three modules.
