Cambridge Assessment English has won a prestigious alliance award for their work which has helped thousands of people get the skills they need to teach English to refugees.
They won an award in the corporate social responsibility category at the Alliance Excellence Awards 2019 for their online course Volunteering with Refugees. The massive open online course was developed by experts in Cambridge in partnership with FutureLearn and Crisis Classroom.
The course was a huge success and so far has helped over 8,000 people to understand the linguistic and social needs of refugees and get ready to teach.
“We’re delighted to be recognised in this way for something that has had a really positive social impact on the lives of so many people,” said Chloe Shaw, Head of Alliance Management at Cambridge Assessment English. “The course has really taken off and this has largely been due to the expertise and passion of the people involved. It was a true collaborative effort and we worked closely with the charity Crisis Classroom and FutureLearn to deliver something that has really made a difference.”
Cambridge Assessment English were given the award at the 2019 Association of Strategic Alliance Professionals (ASAP) Global Alliance Summit in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA.
