Resources for teachers

The central Cambridge Admissions website has a section for teachers and advisers. We encourage teachers to sign up for the Cambridge University teachers and advisers' newsletter, which will keep you updated. If you would like to attend an event or conference for teachers, these are advertised here.

The following list of resources, organised by school subject, is not exhaustive, but we hope that subject teachers will find it useful. Thank you to teachers for your work in raising aspirations to study at Cambridge University. Research has found that encouragement from teachers has the greatest influence on less advantaged students.
