Top Paper Award winners first semester 2021

We are delighted to announce the Top Paper Award winners for the first half of 2021.  Twice a year we recognise the highest achievers in each unit with a special ‘Top Paper Award’.  These Awards are for the individual/s who achieve/s the highest pass in a unit across the entire assessment period globally. 

ABE is the Exporter of the Year finalist

We are delighted to announce that ABE has been shortlisted as Exporter of the Year by the Federation of Awarding Bodies. This stems from our ongoing response to the pandemic and its repercussions.  Throughout the pandemic, we have continued operating transnationally despite the varied and complex challenges faced by different countries around the world.  It is a source of immense pride that during the height of COVID disruption we did not cancel a single exam, or ‘calculate’ any results.   Adapting our assessments and working closely with centres to keep learning on track, has allowed us to successfully continue exporting our qualifications.

ABE launches sustainability audit

Inspired by the launch of ABE Endorsed KidsSDGs, we are involving all staff in an organisation-wide sustainability audit. As an organisation, ABE is committed to supporting UN sustainable development goals (SDG) and in recent years we have achieved much, but this does not mean we cannot improve further and we are not complacent. To tie in with the launch of the KidsSDGs programme, we have challenged the ABE team to look at their area of work and consider ways in which we can go further towards meeting the SDG agenda.
