Book a free assessment: find the right course and training

For some courses – especially ones that lead to a formal qualification – you will need to do a free course assessment with us before you can enrol. Don’t worry! Interviews and assessments are not formal tests.

What to expect at an assessment

We will check your English, maths and digital skills. This will let you understand your skill level and help you choose the right course. We can also talk about support to help you to succeed.

We have course assessments on different days. Assessments are either at our learning centres or on-line.

If your assessment is at one of our learning centres, please wear a mask/face covering and follow our Covid-19 safety guidelines.

Assessments at learning centres

  • Please arrive on time and without children (they might distract you and others).
  • An assessment session could last between one and two hours.
  • Please bring any certificates for courses you have studied.
