We are extremely fortunate to have worked with schools in UAE for over 25 years. We now work with more than 100 schools and I’m pleased to say that the popularity for our international qualifications continues to grow with the overall growth of the education sector in this country.
“Today’s great results are based on the hard work of students, teachers and school support staff, together with the essential support and encouragement of families. There is so much collective effort that goes into the results of an individual; it is schools, parents and teachers who also contribute to a student’s grade. I want to say well done to everyone and wish you every success as you move on to the next stage of studies and career pathways.”
