Thank you to key workers around the world

Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment have joined forces to pay tribute to key workers taking part in efforts to tackle Covid-19 around the world.

This evening our global headquarters at the University Printing House, our 200 year-old Pitt Building and the newly built Triangle tower (Cambridge Assessment’s international headquarters) were lit up blue in thanks. The event was carried out by local businesses The Crane Event, Pink Lamp, JMPS, BlueShed and Jezo Events who all gave their time and skills for free.

People’s lives have changed dramatically in the last four months and the amazing efforts of key workers, from healthcare professionals to farmers and shop workers, have made it possible for our communities to stay safe and keep learning.

Across the Press and Cambridge Assessment we have been working hard to help and support schools, universities, teachers, researchers and learners in these challenging times. Thanks are also due to parents and carers, for their role in ensuring continuity in education.

Peter Phillips, Chief Executive of Cambridge University Press, said, “These are extraordinary times we are living in and everyone here at Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment wants to acknowledge the continued hard work and sacrifice of health workers and carers who are on the front line of this outbreak. It is our way of saying a very big thank you to them for all that they are doing.”

Saul Nassé, Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment said, “Across Cambridge Assessment and Cambridge University Press we have been working hard to help students, teachers and researchers in these challenging times, and we thank them for their commitment to education and research. Parents and carers are having a bigger role than ever in children’s education, and we thank them for that too.”
