More and more often, companies require training schemes for employees and those applying for a job to be accredited with official certificates. In English, the most internationally recognised qualification is First Certificate, from the prestigious University of Cambridge. Apart from being the biggest school in the Vallés region, at Cambridge School we have the unbeatable record of students prepared for this exam, which is obviously thanks to our students, who have access to better resources, native speaking teachers and the experience to properly guide them in terms of exams.
Hundreds of students have made the most of our already popular, preparation classes, based on 3-month intensive courses and mock exams which are extremely useful for the official exam and help students achieve this merit for their curriculum vitae.
Not only do we offer special preparation courses for First Certificate, but also the other Cambridge exams, including exams for children and business.
