  • Certificate of completion - when you complete 80% of the tasks in the course, and provide suitable responses for 75% of the course, you will be eligible for a course completion certificate.
  • Progress tracker – you can see how you are progressing in the course, and if you are a trainer or co-ordinator for a team of teachers, you can see how each of them is progressing.

The Cambridge Learning Management System

Cambridge Teacher Development online courses are run on the Cambridge Learning Management System (the CLMS). The CLMS is the world’s most widely used learning platform designed specifically for English Language Teaching.  Here is a guide to using the system for Cambridge Teacher Development courses. 


There is additional help on using the CLMS here: 

Please note that the CLMS is also used for English language courses, and this affects teacher development courses in two ways:

  • When you are following a teacher development course, you become ‘the student’ or ‘the learner’.  If you have a trainer or co-ordinator supporting you during the course, they will be ‘the teacher’.
  • With your registration on the CLMS, you can both be a teacher for a language course and ‘a learner’ on a teacher development course.  You don’t need to register separately for each role.

If you have an access code for the CLMS, you can go to the landing page for the CLMS here:

Online training and support for Cambridge language courses

The CLMS also provides a range of free courses designed for teachers of Cambridge language courses.  These are available to any teacher who registers on the CLMS.  They include information on how best to teach your students using particular Cambridge courses.   For more information on these free courses, please visit this page: Online training for Cambridge courses
