Schools in Pakistan and around the world face significant challenges in preparing students for the future. Researchers have identified skills which they believe learners will need for the modern world and these findings may require a shift in the way curricula are designed, lessons are taught and schools are led.
Cambridge Assessment International Education held a conference for over 250 delegates from Cambridge schools across Pakistan to set out its approach to equipping learners in Pakistan for a successful life in the modern world.
Keynote speakers at the conference included Rana Mashood Ahmad Khan, Minister for Education, Punjab, Dr Tristian Stobie, Director, Education, Cambridge Assessment International Education and Peter Upton, Director, British Council Pakistan.
Michael O’Sullivan, Chief Executive for Cambridge Assessment International Education said: “This is the largest conference we have ever held for Cambridge schools in Pakistan. It provided a unique opportunity for our schools to discuss the challenges facing their learners in the modern world and the skills they will need to be successful in the modern world.”
Mrs Durenau Mujahid, Vice Principal, Karachi Grammar School said: “This conference has provided a great opportunity to learn about how Cambridge is helping to prepare our learners for the next stage of their education and life beyond. We have a long standing relationship with Cambridge. We love teaching Cambridge syllabuses and value Cambridge qualifications which support our learners get into top universities in Pakistan and around the world.”
