As part of the assessment, it is too easy to take things for granted, in particular the actual skills that have been acquired by a particular qualification on a CV. Does that GCSE in English Language mean that they can spell properly and use grammar correctly? Does that GCSE in Maths mean that they have the numeracy needed for a career in accountancy?

We have a variety of initial assessment tools that we can make available to you.

Our own include:

  • Initial Assessment: Literacy (Level 2)
  • Initial Assessment: Numeracy (Level 2)
  • Initial Assessment: Bookkeeping (Level 2)
