The East Asia Schools Conference aims to support Cambridge schools in the region, keeping them up to date with the latest developments and services from Cambridge International.
In April, around 200 delegates from 105 schools took part in the conference in Qingdao, China. They were joined by representatives from EducationUSA and Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), Japan, as well as delegations from University of Tokyo, University of Yamanashi, University of Hong Kong, BFSU International Business School, and University of International Business and Economics.
Janet Morris, Director International Network, Cambridge International, talked about the global growth in international education, introduced our new brand and shared what’s new from Cambridge International. Dr Jing Zhao, Regional Director, East Asia, Cambridge International, discussed growth in East Asia, how we support Cambridge schools in the region and how Cambridge schools can work with us.
Keynote speeches were given by Lee Davis, Deputy Director, Education, Cambridge International, Prof Chen Xiangming, Chair of the Academic Committee at the Graduate School of Education, Peking University, China and David Mansfield, Headmaster of YK Pao School. They spoke on school improvement, teacher development and school leadership respectively.
In breakout sessions, delegates discussed six different topics - Cambridge professional development, Cambridge Primary and Lower Secondary curriculum implementation in the East Asia region, marketing your Cambridge school, leading your Cambridge school, cultural diversity in managing a Cambridge school, and university recognition.
In her closing remarks, Dr Jing Zhao said, 'Let’s all work as a Cambridge family to provide better education to our students – because they are at the heart of everything we do!'
