"Cambridge CEM provided an excellent day of professional development on how to get the best out of all the Baseline data we have at our disposal. The variety of presentations and topics covered kept the day interesting and focused. I am certainly looking forward to delving into the data to better aid our pupils’ development."
Michael Burke
Head of Lower School, Durham School
"The courses were very helpful – it was a good experience to know how other schools are using CEM products, for example how and when the reports are shared with parents. Some reports can be challenging to interpret but after discussing it during one of the trainings, we can better use them to track the progress of our learners. Our teachers are able to improve students’ outcomes because of CEM."
James Kandani Phiri
The Lilongwe Academy International School, Malawi
"The secondary courses on sharing data with parents and data insights for senior leaders were very useful for those of us managing data in schools. Real examples helped in outlining how data can best serve all stakeholders, parents, staff, and students."
Daniel Carr
Director of Studies, St Francis' College, UK
