Cambridge International has come together with other parts of Cambridge University Press & Assessment to form an International Education group.
The new group unites Cambridge International, Cambridge University Press Education and Cambridge Partnership for Education to offer schools and governments worldwide a more joined-up experience of working with Cambridge, and an innovative range of services that combines our expertise in learning and assessment. It is the latest step towards integrating Cambridge Assessment and Cambridge University Press following their merger on 1 August 2021.
Rod Smith has been appointed Group Managing Director of the International Education group. He has over 30 years’ experience of working in education – in publishing, qualifications and ed tech companies – and was previously Global Managing Director of Cambridge University Press Education.
Rod said: “I am hugely honoured and privileged to lead the new International Education group. Up to now, these different parts of Cambridge have collaborated. But from now on – as one group – we will not only be easier to work with, but we will be better positioned to respond to the wider needs of our schools and partners worldwide in a coherent way – which we know from evidence is the key to delivering improved educational outcomes.”
Rod formally took over the leadership of Cambridge International at the end of August 2022 from Christine Özden, who has been our Chief Executive since January 2019. We are delighted that Christine has taken up a new role at Cambridge University Press & Assessment as our first ever Global Director, Climate Education. She will work with stakeholders inside and outside of our organisation to develop a climate education strategy that will guide activities for teachers and learners in this crucial area. This is an exciting development that reflects our commitment to help educate students about one of the world’s greatest challenges.
As Cambridge International becomes part of the International Education group, we want to reassure our schools worldwide that your day-to-day relationship with us will not change. We will continue to build on the excellent relationships with schools we have developed over many years and offer the same high levels of support.
Our name – Cambridge International – and our logo are also not changing at this time. They are likely to evolve in the future to reflect better our joined-up offer, but we will give you plenty of notice and carefully consider the impact of any changes.
This is the start of an exciting time for the Cambridge International community. We are looking forward to supporting Cambridge International Schools and students even more and having an even greater impact on international education.
