Read our latest statement and FAQs
Last updated: 19/02/2021
With circumstances evolving day by day, we remain committed to supporting you in your important work across the clinical, educational and occupational assessment world. We are continuing to develop our digital tools and assessments as well as running virtual training courses. While the majority of our staff are working virtually, we are still able to deliver online and paper and pencil tests. We have drawn up some FAQs (below) surrounding our current service provision which we hope you will find helpful, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, either by email or phone.
In what format are your training courses currently running?
Our training courses continue to run virtually rather than in-person. While we do not yet have a date for when face-to-face training courses will resume at any of our locations, we are constantly reviewing when we will be able to safely provide this service. In the meantime, we are seeing a fantastic response to our virtual courses, which are still able to offer some of the best parts of in-person training: the ‘classroom’ feeling, the ability to see and speak with peers, real-time tutor interaction, breakout rooms, and much more.
What virtual training courses are currently running?
You can browse our complete range of courses on our website here. We advise to book early to avoid disappointment.
Can I still order paper and pencil assessments?
Yes, we are still supplying paper and pencil assessments as normal, subject to availability. You can send your order to email@example.com, order via the website or call us on +44 1865 797 920.
Which new products might I have missed?
Our Publishing team may have been in lockdown, but we were still able to bring you some exciting new digital assessments. We recently published the online version of the Integrative Child Temperament Inventory (ICTI). In 2020, we published the Design A Matrix – Advanced (DESIGMA-A) for assessing general cognitive ability in individuals or groups aged 17 years and above. We also launched the Management Development Questionnaire (MDQ-R), which is used to assess management, leadership and emotional intelligence competencies. On top of that, new and existing users of the d2 Test of Attention – Revised now have access to additional sets of norms.
