Our research

Four people discussing recent research

Each and every learner benefits from our research, which is at the heart of all our qualifications and education programmes. Across Cambridge Assessment we have a team of more than 80 researchers, which makes our research capability the largest of its kind in Europe. It is this research strength that enables us to help teachers, learners and governments lead the way in education and unlock its power.

But our research is not just about ensuring our qualifications and services are the very best for learners. It’s also designed to add to knowledge and understanding about assessment in education, both nationally and internationally. Sometimes too, we do research for governments and agencies. It’s all with one goal in mind – helping learners.
