Speaking about his new appointment Nassim Abu-Ershaed, Regional Commercial Director, EMEA, said, “There are still huge opportunities for English language learners throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa, despite the current restrictions in the education sector. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes at Cambridge to find new ways to help people learn and teach English. This has included offering learners and teachers online support options and the response has been really encouraging and inspiring. As exams start to get back on track, I’m looking forward to bringing even more opportunities to the region. The Cambridge English exams remain popular throughout the whole region from primary school students up to ambitious professionals working in English-speaking environments. I think the secret to our success has been that students know they are getting the skills they need for the real world and a valuable certificate from a department of Cambridge University.”
