We are offering you the opportunity to find out more about Cambridge International Examinations (CIE)! On the 9th October at 10.00am UAE time we will run an hour long free webinar hosted by CIE.
Cambridge International Examinations Face to Face / Webinar - October 9, 2016 10am UAE Time (GMT +4)
UK education reform and rapid development in the education industry has made many international and British schools overseas question the future of schooling. Roderic Gillespie, Director of Assessment at Cambridge International Examinations will be providing an overview, and the underpinning thinking behind Cambridge programmes, qualifications and assessments with insight into their approach and future direction.
This 60 minute webinar will offer UAE based participants the opportunity to attend face-to-face at a venue in Dubai and stay on for an extended session with Cambridge. The extended session includes a presentation by Cambridge’s Senior Manager for the Gulf and Middle East Ahmad Assaf, and an interactive workshop with Roderic Gillespie.
