Cambridge Exams

In 2013, CL Education was accredited by Cambridge International Examinations as the first, purely Distance Institution, in the world, permitted to offer the Cambridge syllabus as a curriculum provider with an associate school approval centre number (ZA 272). CL Ed is an attached British Council Centre and operates in partnership with British Council for exam purposes. All CL Ed students sit exams at a British Council Centre. CL Ed or any of its affiliated tutor centres may offer CIE exams at an exam venue, approved by British Council, should this become available or be necessary.

Founding member of CL Education, Bronwyn Ansell, operates and manages a tutor centre, exclusive from CL Education interest and partnerships, but in association with CL Education, in Northriding, Johannesburg. Attendance is on a full time, part time or for attending practical exam preparation.
