About Us

Cambridge Worldwide Academy was established in 1997 by Dr Amina Wakefield who is a multi- award winner in international education. Dr Wakefield holds awards in innovation in research in international education, EU awards in innovation in curriculum design, Saphira Award in Leadership and Enterprise and the G8 UK Award for Women in Business in recognition for her outstanding achievements over 20 years in developing partnerships in education between the UK and the MENA countries, enterprise and export in education, managing the best international operations in the sector and generating over £180 million in export of British education.

In the early 1990’s CWA’s activities focused on:

  • Establishment of British education institutions overseas
  • Education and training for women worldwide
  • Leadership and Management
  • Multi-cultural education
  • Teacher training
  • Modern languages
  • Marketing
  • Enterprise
  • Specialist training solutions for industry and the corporate sector

CWA dates back to 1986 and was called AWC (Amina Wakefield Consultancy). CWA was active both in the UK and overseas until 2004 when it changed its education mission to mainly focus on the export of British education and expertise. This change came about as a result of the increasing demand for Dr Wakefield’s support services related to knowledge transfer from the UK to education institutions overseas and the provision of practical solutions to increase economic participation of women and young people.
