Approved City & Guilds Land Based Assessment Centre

About Us

We are an independent, not-for-profit City & Guilds assessment centre offering Level 2 and Level 3 Certificates of Competence in land based qualifications. We've been providing National Proficiency Testing Council (NPTC) assessments for nearly 30 years throughout Norfolk and surrounding areas.

Assessments can be conducted without formal training - you may be trained by experience gained in the workplace or received in-house training from your employer. If training is required we can recommend training providers throughout East Anglia. Assessments are usually conducted at your training provider's site, or your own site.

For further information about each qualification see our Qualifications or Get In Touch
