Globeducate was among the award recipients of the 11th Invest Cyprus International Investment Awards, which are held annually to pay tribute to major international investors who have contributed to Cyprus and its past, present and future prosperity.
The award was picked up by Paddy Jansen, Globeducate’s Chief Operating Officer.

Its schools specialise in a variety of recognised, highly respected international curricula including the National Curriculum for England (EYFS to A Level), International Baccalaureate (PYP to IBDP), and the national curricula of Canada, France, India, Italy, Malaysia, Portugal Cyprus and Spain. Its students achieve high grades and are accepted into higher education programmes at 25 of the world’s top 50 universities.
Being a member of Globeducate brings many benefits for schools, students and teachers. It is an official partner of WWF (World Wildlife Fund), and works with Eco-Schools in each country, as well as LEGO® Education and, in its ICS schools, Arts International.
Paddy Jansen, COO of Globeducate said:
"We are coming up to a full year since we started working in Cyprus and we have been overwhelmed with the welcome we have had - not only from our partners PASCAL Education but also the Cypriot and international Community in the country. We now have schools in 10 countries and are looking forward to working with our new colleagues in Cyprus. We chose to invest in PASCAL Education as during our conversations with the management team of PASCAL Education it quickly transpired that we had many shared values and goals. It has been a dynamic and important step in the future growth for both organisations."
PASCAL Education (Cyprus) Ltd, the largest group of K12 English and Bilingual schools in Cyprus, with 3,000 students and 11 schools across three campuses, joined Globeducate in September 2022. The group comprises both day and boarding schools and an accredited International Baccalaureate World School. PASCAL Schools are fully recognised by the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture.
