Our mission is to provide excellence in education.
We believe that educational integrity should be at the heart of all assessment and that tests and qualifications are only of value if they inform the learning process and reflect the true status of an individual's knowledge and understanding.
We are committed to ensuring all learners access the benefits of their education through a fair and accurate assessment of their skills, knowledge and understanding.
A philosophy of fairness and integrity runs through everything we do, and we are committed to the delivery of our goals through the way we work together, both in teams and as individuals. Our values are:
The Cambridge Approach sets out the principles forming the key reference points for the design, administration and evaluation of our assessments. It is intended both to reflect the best practice in assessment that we seek to follow as an organisation and to be a practical guide for those involved in the development of new assessments.

It provides an overarching structure for individual qualifications but is not designed to relate to every aspect. The Cambridge Approach covers the full lifecycle of an assessment and will be regularly updated with the latest developments.
