For the year ended 30 April 2017
Our core purpose is to advance learning, knowledge and research worldwide. How we fulfil this is evolving as we engage with researchers, students and teachers digitally to help solve their problems. Increasingly we fulfil our purpose by helping unlock their potential with the best learning and research solutions.
The highlight of the Academic group’s year was the smooth and successful launch of Cambridge Core, our new digital publishing platform, which brings together over 30,000 e-books and 1 million journal articles for the first time in one online home.
Cambridge English Language Teaching
Robust growth in sales to schools and in most of our key geographical markets made 2016–17 a year of strong forward momentum for Cambridge ELT, reinforcing our position as one of the foremost English language teaching publishers.
Education enjoyed another year of very strong growth as increasing numbers of schools and governments around the world recognised the value of working with Cambridge to create learning solutions underpinned by research and tailored to their needs.
People and values
None of our achievements in the past year would have been possible without the commitment, expertise and passion of our people, and during 2016–17 we placed strong emphasis on investment in their skills.
