Cambridge Teacher and Learner attributes

As well as developing learners’ knowledge and understanding of different subjects, Cambridge International encourages the development of key learner attributes. These Cambridge learner attributes underpin the Cambridge approach and apply to teachers too. These are:

  • Reflective as learners, developing their ability to learn

  • Innovative and equipped for new and future challenges

  • Confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others

  • Engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference

  • Responsible for themselves, responsive to and respectful of others

The Four C's

Confidence - Having confidence in your own ability and worth - our confidence model includes four key elements: communication, independence, responsibility and self-awareness.

Creativity - Creativity comes in many forms; nurturing creativity is a vital part of our curriculum.

Character - Our role is to not only help our students flourish academically, but on a personal level too - building character with positive attributes to help them thrive as future global citizens. Morality, respect, leadership, perseverance and empathy are values we seek to instill.

Competence - We strive within our curriculum to develop student's competence in all areas of life: socially, academically and emotionally, giving them the ability to deal with things effectively, whether it be managing emotions, excellent subject knowledge or communication effectively.
