Who We Can Help

We support private candidates of all ages and abilities, from across the UK and overseas. We have a wide range of students using our facilities, making everyone feel welcome.

Candidates We Support

Home Educated Candidates

We support home-educated candidates and students from across the UK and overseas. Our range of examination and tuition-based services are ideally suited to meet the needs of home-educated students of all ages and abilities. We can provide focused one-to-one tuition by a subject-specialist tutor and home educated students can take their examinations at our centre in Bristol.

School and College Based Candidates

Students who require examination entry to subjects not currently supported by their school or college, or students who have been excluded from school, can sit their examinations with us at our centre in Bristol.

Distance Learning Candidates

Students that are following a distance learning course can register at our centre for their written and oral examinations, coursework assessment, and practical endorsements. Registering with us for examinations means that distance learning students can concentrate on their course, attending only on the appropriate exam/assessment dates, and sending coursework to us by the appropriate submission date for assessment.

Mature / Adult Candidates

We provide examination entry for adult students, helping candidates who are looking to secure qualifications to enhance their current or future employment or education prospects. Our services are ideally suited to students wishing to prepare for examinations while in full or part-time employment. Our flexible approach offers optional tuition services which are available at evenings and weekends. Examination entry without tuition is also available to these students.

Our services are also particularly popular with PGCE and GTP applicants who require a certain grade in English, Maths, and Science, or those who have lost their old certificates and need to show the necessary proficiency in a certain subject or subjects.

Candidates With Special Needs

We provide examination entry for students with Cognition & Learning needs including specific learning difficulties such as Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. We also support candidates with Communication & Interaction needs, such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Sensory & Physical Needs, such as Multi-Sensory Impairment (MSI), Physical Disability and Social, Mental & Emotional Needs, such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).

We can assist with all aspects of the entry procedure, including advice and guidance regarding the application for Access Arrangements that we submit to JCQ or the exam board. This includes the provision of any external assessment required as part of the application.

Where approved we can provide Access Arrangements for candidates; including additional examination time (typically +25%), supervised rest breaks, the use of a scribe, reader, word processor etc. and access to a private examination room.

Wheelchair access is available at the centre and our other examination facilities.
