Leadership programmes


Discuss what matters most

We support global leaders in improving their national assessments, taking a systemic approach to educational reform. Our leadership programmes, which typically include expert led workshops, seminars and conferences, also offer important networking opportunities.

Participants come from a variety of backgrounds, including ministry heads of education, senior policy officials, international education executives, directors and senior managers from national assessment bodies and educational organisations.

Offered in two formats our leadership programmes, the Cambridge International Study Programme and Leadership in National Assessment, focus on assessment technical expertise or policy and leadership in assessment. We hope to be able to offer both in 2022.

Developments since Covid-19

We appreciate that many leaders in our field, like elsewhere, are missing the chance to talk with fellow professionals. But networking is possible virtually. While our leadership programmes are on hold due to the pandemic, we would like to highlight several other learning options to fill the gaps.

Discuss with experts from Cambridge Assessment on our practitioner workshop webinars, or work with us to create a bespoke learning programme. We hope to see you online soon.
