Over 200 Chinese school leaders and guests attended our conference in Beijing exploring how to build a curriculum that equips learners for the future.
The conference was opened by Sir Sebastian Wood, Britain’s Ambassador to China, and the morning included contributions from Simon Lebus, Chief Executive, Cambridge Assessment, and Michael O’Sullivan, Chief Executive, Cambridge Assessment International Education.
Simon Lebus talked about the close relationship between the University of Cambridge and China, while Michael O’Sullivan took a closer look at Cambridge’s qualifications, examining in detail how they prepare students to be successful in higher education.
Val Sismey, Head of Recognitions, Cambridge Assessment International Education, led the afternoon session. Her presentation on recognition focused on universities in the USA. She looked at why an increasing number of them are using Cambridge qualifications in their admissions processes, valuing them as evidence of outstanding academic achievement.
In his speech, Michael O’Sullivan said: “Our Cambridge International A Level syllabuses help students develop a deep understanding of subjects, as well as independent learning and constructive thinking skills which are valued by universities. Cambridge International A Level, developed to prepare students for post-secondary education, helps thousands of learners every year gain admission at leading universities worldwide and compete for the best education and employment opportunities on a global stage.”
