Assessment Centre

Offering a range of qualifications to help careers, and advice and guidance practitioners in their sector






Who we are

Our specialist training programmes are delivered by a team of highly qualified assessors and internal quality assurers, who support and guide learners throughout their qualification. 

In response to changes in working practices due to COVID-19, we have adapted our delivery methods and use a blended delivery approach which combines technology, with traditional assessment methods such as assignments, professional discussion and research tasks.

Quality is at the forefront of what we do as an assessment centre and we are accredited by both OCR and City & Guilds.

Customised and flexible approach

Our qualifications allow you to design your own training programme, carefully tailored to your needs and setting. Your training can fit around you; we offer start dates throughout the year and you work at your own pace, with guided and tailored support from your tutor.

I have found the support from the tutor/assessor to be of the upmost importance. The help and support offered has made the whole learning experience a much more enjoyable one, which in turn has helped me progress through my qualification quicker than I had expected.
