Cambridge Language Exams
Migrant Schools in Mae Sot; Mae La Refugee Camp; Myitkyina, Kachin State.


MEP has developed another strand which provides improved life-opportunity for the Refugee and Migrant community in which we work. MEP are able to provide free-of-charge six-month Cambridge English courses, leading to an internationally recognised certificate in English Language accredited by Cambridge University. For many of the students and teachers this is their first opportunity to achieve an international qualification and for many it opens up new and wider life-chances.

MEP’s ability to offer Cambridge English courses is based firmly on a long-established and mutually beneficial relationship with Harrow International School (Bangkok). Teachers from Harrow school give their time free of charge every year to act as official Cambridge examiners, while the school fund all exam registrations and organise fund-raising events to help support the cost of the course.

This year MEP will be running a number of programmes. In the Mae Sot region we will be offering two courses; one in Mae La refugee camp working with trainee teachers from PMJCT college and one courses in Mae Sot town for migrant teachers and NGOs. We will also be offering a Cambridge course in Myitkyina, Kachin State.

In 2020-21, we hope to run a Cambridge course in Mawlamyine for teachers from Monastic schools. MEP are also currently in discussion with Cambridge Asia regarding training our own speaking examiners and setting up an exam centre within Myanmar.
