UAE extends partnership with CIE
Dubai, January 9, 2008
The UAE Ministry of Education (MoE) has extended its partnership with the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) to further enhance the standards of education in the country.
CIE is the international examination board behind the prestigious Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge A/AS Level qualifications.
Having set the benchmark of academic excellence in the UAE and around the globe, CIE is determined to increase its participation in the development of UAE education as its top executives recently concluded a trip to UAE, said an official spokesman.
“The meeting was very fruitful and I really appreciated the fact that two senior members of CIE’s management team visited various educational organisations in the UAE. The Ministry of Education in the UAE would like to maintain and develop the relationship with CIE. We signed an agreement with CIE in 2002 and we would like to continue working with CIE to develop the standards of education in the UAE,” said Dr Ali Meihed on behalf of the Ministry of Education.
Chief executive of University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) Ann Puntis and chief executive of Cambridge Assessment Group Simon Lebus held a series of high profile meetings with key personnel from the UAE Ministry of Education, Abu Dhabi Education Council, and Knowledge and Human Development Authority to continue working together to boost educational standards and quality in the Emirates.
CIE is part of the Cambridge Assessment Group, a not-for-profit organisation and a department of Cambridge University, one of the world’s top universities. CIE is a leading provider of international assessment, working with Ministries of Education and Education Boards around the world.
Cambridge Assessment Group and CIE are at the forefront of education internationally. Cambridge Assessment Group is a world authority on curriculum and assessment. CIE also works in partnership with such prestigious organisations as Singapore Examinations and Assessment Authority, Hong Kong Education Authority, and the governments of Kuwait and Bahrain. – TradeArabia News Service
