We provide professional development for the assessment community in the UK and internationally.  We are part of Cambridge Assessment, an international exams group who design and deliver assessments to over 8 million learners in over 170 countries.

We bring clarity and confidence to the world of assessment by equipping practitioners with the skills and knowledge needed to design and develop assessments with a robust grounding in evidence.

From our 9-week online courses covering the foundations of assessment practice, to interactive practitioner workshops and a postgraduate qualification, we have solutions for a diverse range of assessment professionals.
