Read our latest statement and FAQs
Last updated: 17/09/2020
With this unprecedented situation continuing to evolve, for most of us, our workplaces and work methods are still adapting day-by-day.
Our staff members are starting to return to the office and we remain committed to helping our clients as you continue your important work across the clinical, educational and occupational assessment world – even in this altered landscape. We are still able to deliver both paper and pencil and online tests, plus our training courses are running in virtual format. We have drawn up some FAQs (below) surrounding our current service provision which we hope you will find helpful.
This, of course, is a rapidly developing situation with many unknowns. For the moment, we urge you only to put your health and wellbeing – and that of your families – first. Please, if you have specific questions in relation to our service provision, do not hesitate to contact us directly – we remain committed to answering your queries and keeping our lines of communication open.
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. Many dates for 2021 are already available due to popular demand.
Which new products might I have missed over the past few months?
Our Publishing team may have been in lockdown, but we were still able to bring you some exciting new online assessments. We recently 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.
