Can you tell me about the Diploma in Teaching and Learning?

The Diploma requires candidates to submit 3 practice-based portfolios to Cambridge for assessment. The portfolios consist of evidence of practice, learning and reflection on these activities.

A Diploma programme requires 360 hours of preparation and should take candidates 10-12 months.

Teachers will be required to:

  • understand principles of learning and teaching and apply these principles to their own practice
  • articulate their own personal theory of learning
  • design coherent learning activities that focus on planning for active learning and teaching
  • use approaches to teaching and learning appropriately to help learners to learn more effectively
  • develop their reflective practice skills to help them evaluate and develop their own practice
  • learn collaboratively, supported by their colleagues
  • 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 programmes 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. 

Candidates should be full or part-time teachers in an educational institution such as a school, college, university, or adult training centre. Candidates are required to be teaching in their current educational institution over the course of a full academic year, for a minimum 24 weeks and a minimum of six hours per week.
