The Cambridge International Diploma in Teaching with ICT, launched in March 2001, is the only international Diploma that meets this specific professional need. The Diploma is part of an ambitious programme of related initiatives launched by CIE, aiming to provide clarity on the use of ICT in teaching and learning. It is designed for teachers in all education and training contexts, and at all levels.
The Cambridge International Diploma in Teaching with ICT is for everyone in a teaching role needing to develop skills, knowledge and understanding in using ICT resources to support teaching and learning.
In today's world of flexible and lifelong learning, teachers find ICT becoming pivotal to the teaching and learning process. This Diploma recognises the benefits teachers will gain by becoming more effective in teaching with ICT resources, not only fulfilling their own professional goals but also enhancing their learners' capabilities and contributing to the success of their institution.
The skills, knowledge and understanding involved in teaching with ICT are generic and transferable. The Diploma enables candidates to work in contexts which are most relevant to them, while addressing these generic performance standards. Thus the Diploma is accessible to teachers in all areas and at all levels of education and training.
The Diploma is intended for teachers in educational establishments, training organisations and companies. They can be full-time or part-time. Their teaching role may be their only responsibility or one of a number of responsibilities they have within their institution. The Diploma has been designed to be flexible, so that candidates from a variety of teaching environments have equal opportunity to demonstrate their skills, knowledge and understanding.
These environments can range across teaching subject (from general to technical and vocational programmes), level (from primary to higher education, and from basic to advanced training) and age of learners (from children to adults).
