Celebrating Excellence in e-Assessment

In expressing their enthusiasm for the partnership, Mark Walker, Director of English and Exams at the British Council stated, “The British Council are delighted to be the Headline Sponsor for the 2024 International e-Assessment Awards celebrating global innovation and progress in this area. We are delighted to be playing our part in shining a spotlight on those achievements and spreading the word, worldwide, about this prestigious and influential programme.
