What it means to be a University Press for Education

The Education group at Cambridge University Press is one of the fastest growing and most innovative businesses in its sector. For Education, being a University Press means working alongside educators and learners to provide individuals with accessible, inspirational learning resources that lead them to a lifetime of achievement. Education’s growing success means they currently work in over 160 countries. In an ever-changing global educational environment, Cambridge aims to innovate, inspire and lead the way in educational excellence and the Education group has proven its key positioning within this landscape with a strong growth in sales of print and digital materials and the continued success of its international exams publishing business.

"Being a University Press means working alongside educators and learners to provide accessible, inspirational resources that lead them to a lifetime of achievement."

Cambridge’s focus on learning and research are crucial aspects of delivering excellent, fully-rounded education that the modern learner demands. Across the Education group, the University’s mission of unlocking the best learning solutions is stressed through the importance of publishing for individual local markets, respecting their needs and cultures, whether these be International Schools, UK Schools or foreign ministries. In order to provide the best resources, The Press works closely with both Cambridge Assessment and the University’s Faculty of Education. The education reform project in Kazakhstan exemplifies how harnessing the full resources of Cambridge can deliver leading educational thinking and practical change, as the digital revolution opens up new ways of imparting knowledge and testing a student’s understanding.

Innovative teaching and learning materials play a vital role in the process of education, therefore Cambridge continues to expand its research base so that it can determine the best pedagogical approaches for the contextual environment. Education have worked with the Faculty of Education to publish the Cambridge Education Research Series, which are devoted to research-led studies of international education policy and practice. Cambridge’s long-standing traditions of high quality teacher education shape these works, creating resources that support teacher learning and professional development. In all areas, Education places learning and research at the heart of everything they do, working to further the mission of the Press to ‘disseminate knowledge in the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest levels of excellence.’
