All courses require an Initial Assessment (IA) and this can be sat by contacting Learning & Skills to complete it via one of the methods below:

  1. Attending the day time IA session on a Friday Afternoon
  2. Attending the evening IA session on a Thursday 
  3. Complete it online anytime

Please contact us for more information.
