Rod Smith was appointed Group Managing Director of International Education at Cambridge University Press & Assessment in August 2022. The International Education group was formed in August 2022, to bring together Cambridge International, Cambridge University Press Education and the Cambridge Partnership for Education.
Rod was previously Global Managing Director for Education at Cambridge University Press, a role he held since February 2015. He had overall responsibility for the Schools’ publishing businesses in the UK, South Africa, India and Australia, and for the Cambridge Partnership for Education.
After a childhood growing up in and around schools (his mother was a headteacher for 25 years), and a brief period as a primary school teacher, Rod developed his career in education services. For over 30 years he has worked in publishing, qualifications – both international and vocational – and Ed Tech companies in a variety of marketing and general management roles.
His career has confirmed his strong belief that education is the key to driving sustainable change for good in society and to creating the opportunity for more young people to be active beneficiaries of that change.
