Assessment update

We continue to monitor the advice from the UK Government regarding the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on our assessments for 2021. We believe the move to our online Virtual Centre for our professional exams has been the right thing to do, and will help secure our assessment provision now and in the future whilst keeping our candidates safer throughout the remaining challenges of Covid-19.

We understand this is still a difficult time for all and realise that undertaking assessment online comes with its own challenges and can pose anxiety for some candidates, however we aim to continue to provide support so that you, our candidates, can progress with as little disruption as possible.
