Assessment and certification

Practical skills are assessed by continuous observation by the trainer and there is a written assessment paper to check understanding.

Learners need a basic command of English

So whilst we are often able to provide support to people who for example do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance, although we may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance.

Please phone us 0844 770 4800* if you need any guidance.
