Image: E-Assessment, Coming Soon...We are delighted to announce that in the coming month, we will be launching E-Assessment sessions as part of our cost effective, quality assured e-learning platform.

What is E-Assessment?

Learners with considerable knowledge and experience in the Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF) subjects can undertake a robust e-assessment session to demonstrate their understanding of the subject(s). Learners who pass the assessment will gain a certificate of completion without having to undertake the full e-learning course. Learners who do not pass the assessment will be directed to the appropriate e-learning course.

Questions have been developed and tested by experts in each subject area to ensure high-quality assessments to save your staff and your organisation time, money and resources.


Robust assessment - E-assessment is based on the national Core Skills Training Framework; organisations can be assured that the right skills are being assessed in the same way as if staff had taken a course.

Time saving - Staff that are able to demonstrate their subject knowledge and gain a certificate can avoid repeating training, saving time and maximising their patient contact time.

Flexible - E-assessments are PC, tablet and mobile compatible – staff can undertake the assessment any time anywhere that suits them.

Efficient - Organisations need to only train those staff who require updates – staff who can demonstrate their knowledge can gain the certificate without sitting through the full training courses.

Improved induction - Should staff be new to the organisation (and not previously compliant in CSTF), they can demonstrate their knowledge and skills by taking the assessment, speeding up the time in completing their induction.
