Cambridge University Press & Assessment has signed a new agreement with the Ministry of Education in Estonia to deliver thousands of English language assessments as part of a major English language programme.
The new agreement will see more than 18,000 school-leavers take a Cambridge English C1 Advanced exam over the next four and a half years. The project continues our collaboration which has already given more than 15,000 students a high-level English language qualification recognised by thousands of universities in Australia, Canada, the UK, United States and many other countries.
The exams will be delivered by Education and Youth Board (Harno) Haridus- ja Noorteamet.
‘We’re delighted to be continuing our work with the Ministry of Education in Estonia, and with our colleagues in Harno’ commented Dr Hanan Khalifa from Cambridge. ‘In the previous round of the project, Estonian students consistently achieved results which were significantly higher than the global average for this high-level English exam. These are fantastic results which have been achieved as a result of the motivation and commitment of parents, students, teachers and of course the Ministry. This new phase of the project is even more ambitious which shows the confidence the Ministry has in Estonia’s students.’
To mark the completion of the successful four year project and the new agreement, representatives from Cambridge joined Harno at a special event in Tallin in December 2022 where Dr Khalifa praised the excellent administration of the programme over the last four years.
The first batch of C1 Advanced exams to be taken under the agreement in Estonia will take place in Spring 2023.
