Cambridge-Macedonia partnership blooms

Macedonian classroom

Michael O’Sullivan, the Chief Executive of our international exam board Cambridge International Examinations, has visited Macedonia to launch the second phase of its work with the Ministry of Education and Science and the Education Development Bureau in Macedonia.

The first phase of the work introduced new maths and science curricula, together with accompanying textbooks, to Grades 1–3 in all Macedonian state primary schools. Teachers started implementing these new curricula in September 2014.

Following the success of this stage of the project, Cambridge International Examinations is now working with the government and teachers in Macedonia on the introduction of maths and science curricula for Grades 4–6.

To mark this new phase of the work, Michael O’Sullivan visited an elementary school in Skopje with Spiro Ristovski, Deputy Minister of Education and Science, to see teachers and pupils working on the new curriculum.
