A Cambridge Associate provides the link between Cambridge Assessment International Education and individual schools and colleges.
A Cambridge Associate identifies and attracts schools to support the growth of Cambridge programmes and qualifications in their country, and manages the relationship with these schools on our behalf.
The role of a Cambridge Associate varies depending on the nature and size of their organisation and the way they agree to work with us. Some of the activities Cambridge Associates carry out are described below.
Title: What is a Cambridge Associate School and how to become one?
Schools that want to run Cambridge International programmes have the option to complete their registration via a local Associate. Academic Union supported by Horizon Education Consultancy supports the schools through the preparation, registration and implementation processes.
There are registration standards the schools are expected to meet to be able to start working with Cambridge International. There is a rigorous selection process and an official approval visit. While some schools may be ready to start the programmes straight away, some others may take a few months or a year to prepare for the implementation and the approval visit.
Some of the Cambridge registration standards could be found in the document below:
