'Introducing Cambridge Nationals' E-learning Module

We’ve created a short online course to give teachers who are either thinking about choosing a Cambridge Nationals, or who will be teaching one for the first time, key information about the individual qualifications. 

In around 30 minutes, you’ll learn what these qualifications are and how they prepare students for future study and work.  We guide you through the key milestones that make up the journey of teaching a Cambridge National and include tips on how to teach them brilliantly.  Finally, we look at assessment and at how we are here to support you as you support your students.

Complete the form to start learning.

Curriculum Planners and Student Guides to NEA Assignment

We’ve produced a high level curriculum planning aid for each subject which suggests how you could teach these redeveloped qualifications over two or three years. Plus, we've developed student guides with a summary of key points about the assignments, including the importance of avoiding plagiarism.  ** Note: Our curriculum planners are just being updated and will be republished soon.
