The start of the school year is the perfect time to explain the benefits of Cambridge English Qualifications to both students and parents. Read this article to find out more and download a helpful PDF for your support.
Whilst your school may have already decided to offer Cambridge English Qualifications, some parents will need more information to understand the value of learning and assessing English. The level-based Cambridge English exams provide a clear path for developing English language skills, step by step. This clear path for progression inspires learners to go further, opening doors to exciting higher education and workplace opportunities.
98% of employers use at least one method to test English language skills. Cambridge English Qualifications test all four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking.
95% of employers state that the English language is important to their organisation. The Cambridge English exam qualifications are accepted by over 24,000 universities, employers and governments around the world.
To help you prepare for conversations with parents, Cambridge Assessment English has created a fact sheet to help explain these benefits. Holding an event for parents can also be a great opportunity to explain why learning English at a young age is important, and how progressing through our qualifications builds students’ confidence and gives an opportunity to celebrate their progress at every step.
