18 January 2018 – Leading UK assessment provider, GL Education, has signed a 10-year strategic partnership agreement with SAYEGH, one of the most established and largest educational publishers in the Arab world and owner of the International Arab Baccalaureate Exam Board. The agreement will open the door for GL Education to provide its assessments to Arab world state schools and private schools.
GL Education’s assessments are used by schools in the UK and around the world to understand students’ potential, track their progress and identify any barriers to learning they may have. SAYEGH will now work in partnership with GL Education to ensure that children throughout the Arab world can have access to these assessments in their own language.
CEO, Habib Sayegh, said: “GL Education offers rich, lasting and valuable information to schools and teachers. By adapting and aligning its assessments for Arab schools, we are together taking a ground-breaking step towards the enrichment of education across the region. SAYEGH is proud to be partnering with GL Education in this venture, and we look forward to many years of impactful and innovative collaboration together.”
Greg Watson, Chief Executive of GL Education, said: “We are delighted to be partnering SAYEGH in this strategic and forward-thinking relationship. Both partners bring something truly special to this relationship – SAYEGH has a unique place in the school life of millions of children across the Middle East and North Africa. Together we have the capability to put our benchmarking and diagnostic assessments at the heart of thousands of Arabic-speaking schools.”
