The Cambridge International Certificate in Teaching and Learning is a major training unit at Greensprings Training College, Lagos.

Why Cambridge?

Cambridge Professional Development Qualifications (PDQs) provide a strong framework to support the effective continuing professional development of teachers and leaders.

They help teachers and educational leaders to: • engage critically with relevant concepts, principles, theories and international best practices • apply new ideas and approaches in reflective practice in their own teaching and learning context • evaluate experiences and outcomes to plan further development • improve the quality of their teaching and leadership to enhance the quality of their learners’ learning.

PDQs are designed to be integrated into schools’ professional development planning, activities and culture. They help schools to improve, through cost-effective, sustainable programmes which benefit teachers and their learners. They demonstrate to parents, the school community and stakeholders that the school values and nurtures staff development.

What is the purpose of the Certificate and Diploma in Teaching and Learning?

The Certificate and Diploma are designed to help teachers develop their professional thinking and practice, and enhance the quality of their teaching and learning. Reflective practice is enriched by critical engagement with new ideas and approaches.

Who are the qualifications for?

The Certificate and Diploma are for practising teachers. 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 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.

There are many different terms in use for ‘teacher’, ‘learner’, ‘learning context’ and ‘learning session’. In this syllabus, we refer to ‘teacher’, ‘learner’, ‘school’ and ‘lesson’ as generic terms. For assessment purposes, we also use ‘candidate’, where appropriate, to refer to the teacher preparing for the qualification.
