Cognassist is the UK’s leading cognitive assessment and neurodiversity platform, working with over 100 of the UK’s best education providers to transform the lives on learners. 1 in 5 learners in the UK leave education with no basic qualifications. Yes, it’s a scary statistic. Whilst we’ve made significant progress to reduce barriers to education in the UK, we’re still failing 20% of our learners.

Specifically, most learning providers, whether they’re universities, colleges, adult learning or apprenticeship providers struggle with:

  1. Easily identifying learners with additional needs

  3. Accessing funding to provide that support

That’s why we built Cognassist. To help every learner reach their full potential and empower learning providers for the future.
