Excellence in education
Their mission is to deliver world-class international education through the provision of high-quality curricula, assessment and services.
More than 9000 schools are part of the Cambridge learning community. They support teachers in over 160 countries who offer their learners an international education based on the CIE curricula and leading to CIE qualifications. Every year, thousands of learners use Cambridge qualifications to gain places at universities around the world.
Their syllabuses are reviewed and updated regularly so that they reflect the latest thinking of international experts and practitioners and take account of the different national contexts in which they are taught.
Cambridge programmes and qualifications are designed to support learners in becoming:
• confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others
• responsible for themselves, responsive to and respectful of others
• reflective as learners, developing their ability to learn
• innovative and equipped for new and future challenges
• engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference.
