Association of Cambridge Educators in Southern Africa


Association of Cambridge Educators of Southern Africa represents a united voice on behalf of member schools to Cambridge Assessment International Education. We aim to assist principals, schools and educators in offering Cambridge qualifications in a Sub-Saharan African context.

Why Cambridge?

Cambridge Assessment International Education is the world’s largest provider of international education programmes and qualifications for 5 to 19 year olds, and forms part of the University of Cambridge. As a world leader in providing international programmes and qualifications for school education, we are expanding our international team in Sub-Saharan Africa. Having a dedicated local team is an important part of supporting our growing community of almost 900 Cambridge schools.

How do we assist Southern African Cambridge Member Schools?

We encourage all ACESA teachers to share their knowledge, expertise and experience by participating in the ACESA Subject Discussion Groups, training courses and workshops that have been created specifically for this purpose. This allows all our members to exchange ideas and knowledge with their colleagues across regions, schools and subject areas, to ensure that we harness a methodology of continuous improvement and innovation amongst ourselves as best-practice global practitioners and teachers.

How do our students benefit?

  • Internationally recognised qualifications with a focus on depth of study
  • Accepted  by tertiary institutions locally and abroad


On behalf of ACESA, we congratulate our Cambridge Outstanding Awards winners who have excelled nationally and internationally, achieving First in South Africa and First in the World awards.

Among many subjects and examinations, we celebrate: English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Accounting, Business Studies, Biology, Art & Design and Music.
