Teaching and learning
We have a strong track record in providing consultancy for new national and international qualifications. These can be benchmarked to national and international standards as appropriate or developed in different languages to meet national requirements for bilingual or multilingual education.
Here are some examples of qualifications we have created, working with educators, industry leaders and learners to ensure assessment is relevant and fit for purpose.
We were the first exam board to develop IGCSE. Now, over 25 years on, Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international curriculum for 14 to 16 year olds. The qualification has had a significant impact on education reform in the UK, with many schools choosing Cambridge IGCSE over the UK GCSE.
Our new alternative to UK A Level, Cambridge Pre-U, has been equally influential in the UK. It heralds a national return to linear, rather than modular, qualifications and has had a significant impact on government policy for post-16 education.
We are working with the Bahrain Quality Assurance Authority for Education and Training to establish the Bahrain National Examinations Unit and assisting it to develop and deliver assessments at Grades 3, 6, 9 and 12. We are helping the National Examinations Unit to set examinations based on the curriculum requirements and standards developed by the ministry of education, covering what students should know, understand and be able to do at each stage of their school career.
Local capacity has been built carefully over the phases of the project to ensure that skills are transferred to the local partners. The aim of the project is to drive improvements in the education system and to provide information for the monitoring of standards over time.
