GEMS students to benefit from Cambridge English qualifications
Beginning in UAE in 2012, the project is expected to extend to other countries around the world over the next few years. GEMS schools will be given Cambridge ESOL Authorised Centre status, allowing them to run tests for their students, using the world-famous Cambridge English exams and following Cambridge ESOL's strict standards for security, quality and customer service.
Dr Michael Milanovic, Chief Executive Office of Cambridge ESOL said 'We are very pleased that GEMS has demonstrated its commitment to high quality in English language training by taking the step towards adopting the Cambridge English exams, and we are looking forward to working with them both in UAE and globally.
