accessplanit aids Cambridge's international expansion

accessplanit has developed a course booking and management system for Cambridge International Examinations, part of the esteemed university's assessment group.

The not-for-profit organisation is the world’s largest provider of international education programmes and qualifications for 5 to 19 year olds.

As part of its comprehensive education portfolio, Cambridge International Examinations also offers Cambridge Professional Development qualifications for teachers and trainers, and delivers over 16,000 training days every year to teachers in 160 countries, including e-learning, classroom based, webinars and conferences.

The new tools, created by Lancaster-based accessplanit, have the capability to manage on-line course booking in a variety of currencies.

Ed Sutton, project manager at Cambridge International Examinations said: “accessplanit Course Manager provides the detailed level of functionality we need to support our growing programme of professional development training and events for teachers.

"Software implementation and system changes can be challenging, but the team at accessplanit worked in partnership with us, fine-tuning Course Manager to provide a fully integrated solution, whilst providing continual support and high quality training. "It’s early days but initial benefits, including a reduction in admin and improved communication through online booking, are impressive.”
