Situated at an institution with an 800-year-old legacy - the University of Cambridge - the course combines both Lesson Study and cultural experience suitable for teachers, headteachers, school administrators and educational supervisors. Here, you will be trained by prominent academics from the world-renowned University of Cambridge, enjoy true Cambridge teaching and living experience, and visit schools in the UK to broaden your skills and professional network. This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you wouldn’t want to miss.

Cambridge’s colleges are the centre of student life and each has its own unique history and beauty. We provide the true Cambridge experience with a college tour, accommodation in a college (or a hotel room), meals in the college dining hall, a tranquil afternoon punting on the River Cam, and a traditional formal dinner at your host college. 


We provide a varied schedule of additional activities and visits to give our participants exposure to British Culture and Cambridge Life.
