The University of Cambridge has announced that it will bring together its publishing and assessment operations to create a single organisation. Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment publish and create world-leading content and examinations that are used across more than 170 countries.
The move is in response to a growing desire from learners, teachers and researchers to engage with Cambridge in a joined-up digital way, and the demand for innovative products that combine expertise in learning and assessment. The need for an integrated approach has been accelerated by the rapid uptake of digital education during the COVID-19 pandemic. The new organisation will have the capabilities to provide world-leading assessment, learning and academic research offerings globally, under the Cambridge brand.
Over the next few months Cambridge University Press Chief Executive Peter Phillips and Cambridge Assessment Chief Executive Saul Nassé will work together to create the new unified organisation for launch on August 1, 2021, which Phillips will then lead.
