University of Cambridge International Examinations on Tuesday held the first Cambridge Leaders’ Seminar in Colombo for principals and deputy principals from all over Sri Lanka.  


With a theme of ‘The Impact of Leadership on Teaching and Learning’, the conference aimed to support school leaders by providing them with the knowledge and skills to deliver the best educational experience to students.
Over 100 international, private and national schools from across the island-nation participated in the event. All attending schools offer Cambridge programs and qualifications and included Lyceum Internationals, Wycherley International, Alethea International, British School in Colombo, Ilma International Girls’ School, Ladies College, Royal Institute, St Nicholas College, OKI Internationals, Angel International Manipay and Minhal International Boys’ School.
Sessions at the seminar included discussions on the role of the teacher as a leader, different leadership styles in diverse situations, and learning in an interconnected world. The participants were able to build upon their expertise and learn from Cambridge’s experts in the field of international education.   
A not-for-profit organisation, University of Cambridge International Examinations is part of Cambridge Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge. Schools in Sri Lanka made over 11,000 entries for Cambridge programs and qualifications in 2011-12, seeing a rise of 18% in the past year. Dr John Guy, Senior Education Advisor, University of Cambridge International Examinations, said: “Our programs and qualifications have a proven reputation for providing students in Sri Lanka and around the world with an excellent preparation for university, employment and life. We support schools to develop students who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. This approach fosters active learners who have a love for learning, are self-driven and engaged at all levels with their education. The increasing numbers of students taking our qualifications in Sri Lanka shows that schools are aware of the value of this approach and the importance of an international education in today’s ultra-competitive global economy.”  University of Cambridge International Examinations is the world’s largest provider of international education programs and qualifications for 5−19 year olds. Our qualifications are taken in over 160 countries and recognised by universities, education providers and employers across the world.
