New names give better alignment

03 October 2017

Cambridge Assessment has announced that its exam boards Cambridge English Language Assessment and Cambridge International Examinations have changed their names.

Cambridge English is now called Cambridge Assessment English, while Cambridge International Examinations has become Cambridge Assessment International Education.

“Today, what we provide has expanded well beyond our programme 20 years ago when we first used the name Cambridge International Examinations, so much so a change of name is called for,” said Michael O’Sullivan, Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment International Education.

“Our new name shows more clearly that we are part of Cambridge Assessment, sharing the biggest assessment research team in Europe and unrivalled depth of experience in national education systems, international education and English language learning.”

His comments were echoed by Saul Nassé, Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment English, who said: “By changing from ‘Cambridge English Language Assessment’ to ‘Cambridge Assessment English’, we are reflecting that we are part of a leading international education and assessment group, with English at the heart of everything we do.”
