2014 Cambridge English Language Assessment awards for preparation centres

1. The Awards


Our global network of registered preparation centres is growing each year and it is because of your work that Cambridge English exams are the world's leading range of qualifications for learners of English.

To recognise and reward your efforts, we will be hosting the 2015 Cambridge English Language Assessment preparation centre awards from 30 June - 4 July 2015. Finalists of the awards will be invited to visit the Cambridge English Language Assessment Head Office in Cambridge, UK, to attend workshops, consultations and the awards celebrations. We will cover any reasonable travel expenses connected to the trip to Cambridge, as well as provide accommodation and food during the finalists' stay with us.

The winners of the awards will be announced at a special Gala Dinner on 3 July 2015. Further details of the programme will be communicated to the finalists in advance of their trip.
