British Council Colombia hosted a successful conference for Cambridge Associate Schools in April 2015, bringing together 120 participants from schools in Colombia and Peru.
This annual event combines discussion of current topics in education with practical support for Cambridge schools.
Jackie Greene, an experienced primary school head teacher from the UK, and Kate Ruttle, an expert in Assessment for Learning and Cambridge University Press author, led a session on the theory and practical applications of active learning. Representatives from Cambridge Assessment International Education in Latin America and the British Council schools support team also ran sessions to remind schools of the programmes and support available to them.
Cambridge Regional Development Manager, Richard Gilby praised the event. He said: “We were impressed with the depth of relationships that the British Council has with Cambridge schools. The team’s integrated programme appears to be well aligned with our quality expectations, both operationally and educationally. This British Council approach could serve as a model for good practice in other countries”.
During the conference, Cambridge Director, International Network, Janet Morris, presented the new Cambridge International Certificate in Educational Leadership to candidates trained by the British Council. They are among the first ever recipients of this new qualification worldwide.
