Cambridge Life Competencies Teacher Survey: Results sneak peek!

Jasmin Silver

In November 2019, we asked teachers to tell us how they approach the development of life competencies in their students, through the Cambridge Life Competencies Framework Teacher Survey. Not yet taken part? You still have until 16th February to have your say!

In the meantime, here is a sneak peek of some of our results so far:

  • Most teachers say that teaching life competencies is already part of their English classes to some extent.
  • Over 80% would find a framework such as the Cambridge Life Competencies Framework greatly useful for their current teaching.
  • Teachers tend to feel more confident in teaching the life competencies Communication and Learning to Learn and less confident teaching Emotional Development and Social Responsibilities.

Help us to help you!

Every time someone completes the teacher survey, we are gaining more and more insights into how the framework needs to adapt, to best suit your needs as teachers. We want this to be a framework that works for you.

Have your say and review some Can Do Statements from a competency of your choice by taking our short survey before it closes!

Need a little reminder of what we are we asking from you?

We would like you to review a selection of Can Do Statements and tell us if you think they are appropriate for your learners and your own teaching context. If you can suggest any adaptions or revisions to make them better for your context, we’d love to hear those too!

To keep things short and simple, you choose which competency and which learning stage you are interested in. If you would like to, you can then go on to repeat this more than once, choosing different competencies or learning stages each time.

You should be able to complete this in 5-10 minutes.

Start the teacher survey.

What happens next?

Your answers will help to shape future versions of the Cambridge Life Competencies Framework and improve it for teachers and learners around the world.

We will be publishing the results in Spring.

Thank you
