Introduction to our business units

Our business units

Within the Cambridge Assessment Group we have three exam boards, supported by Corporate Services.

We own and manage OCR (Oxford, Cambridge and RSA), Cambridge International Examinations and Cambridge English Language Assessment, and carry out leading-edge and operational research on assessment in education. We are the oldest exams group still in existence - we celebrated our 150th anniversary in 2008 - and the only one attached to a university.

As well as qualifications, we also offer:

  • Admissions tests
  • Consultancy
  • A professional network for the assessment community
  • Professional development

We employ over 2,200 people, around 1,500 of whom are based in our offices in Cambridge; over 250 in our Midlands based offices with others based in regional offices, both in the UK and internationally. As well as being highly qualified, a large proportion of our people have worked in the teaching profession and therefore have the practical experience to understand the demands placed on the people delivering our qualifications.
