Assessment is important in subjects like English, Maths and IT. Starting at too higher level is frustrating, too lower level leads to boredom. Neither are good for motivation.

Check your level of IT skills & knowledge with our new assessment tool from the Learning Curve Group (LCG). You can register here. The passkey needed to access the form is ‘12345’. Enter this with your details then simply complete the assessment at your own pace. Once completed you will be contacted by an advisor from LCG who will recommend a digital skills course for you at the appropriate level.

Skillcheck can be used to assess your English, Maths and Digital Skills (and others). You can use it on your tablet/computer or download the app for either Apple or Android phones, but you will need to register to use Skillcheck
