Benefits for learners

Cambridge programmes and qualifications are recognised by universities and employers worldwide as evidence of academic ability, and are regarded as a passport for progression and success.

Cambridge International Examinations supports the University of Cambridge in its mission to deliver excellence in education. As a not-for-profit organisation, Cambridge continually invests in education, research and services for schools.

The Cambridge approach encourages learner-centred and enquiry-based approaches to learning.

Cambridge programmes build on learners’ knowledge and skills as they progress through education, preparing them for the next stage of their education.

Cambridge offers a wide range of support including training for teachers, classroom support and guidance, curriculum resources and community benefits.
