School leaders in Karachi and Lahore welcomed a delegation from Cambridge recently, including Saul Nassé, Chief Executive of the Cambridge Assessment Group and Peter Phillips, Chief Executive of Cambridge University Press.
Speaking at an event at The City School in Karachi on 9 October, Saul Nassé said one of his top priorities on becoming Group Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment was to come to Pakistan. 'Our goal is to shape our educational programmes in the best way to prepare your students for the opportunities and challenges they will face. We can only do that with your input,' he said to over 30 school leaders present at the event.
Saul Nassé became Group Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment – our parent organisation – in April 2018. He travelled to Pakistan with our Director of International Network, Andrew Coombe, to visit Cambridge schools, meet with school leaders and representatives of the British Council. He also attended an awards ceremony for high-achieving students at Lahore Grammar School, and took the opportunity to meet Cambridge O Level and International AS & A Level students and teachers from many schools.
Cambridge International has a long history of working with schools in Pakistan and the British Council. Over 600 schools in the country offer Cambridge programmes and qualifications.
During his four-day trip, Saul stayed in two cities, Karachi and Lahore, where he visited five schools. He interacted with about 200 school leaders and around 100 teachers and students from Cambridge schools during his stay in Pakistan.
