International English qualifications born from the leading GCSEs and A-levels in the UK – perfectly tailored for the needs of your students.

Our international English qualifications are based on by far the most popular specifications in UK schools – representing an average of over 55% of all English-subject GCSEs and 75% of all English-subject A-levels in England.

In the development of our international English qualifications we listened carefully to teachers in the Middle East – helping us to ensure our sources and texts are relevant and stimulating for your students.

For example, our English Language qualifications include a variety of sources that feature a visual stimulus – revealed in our research as being effective in improving the engagement levels of international students.

Our English Literature qualifications are also informed by regional research, providing teachers with the right balance of traditional and contemporary texts for maximum choice and flexibility.

All our international English qualifications have a Non-Exam Assessment (NEA) component, providing opportunities for teachers to tailor the course to their students' strengths and interests.
