We take our science seriously and here's how we do it
Inclusive Assessment Organisations
We are committed to compliance with The Equality Act 2010 and ensuring that all individuals have an equal opportunity to showcase their knowledge, skills, and behaviours. We know the value of neurodiversity and are dedicated to creating a level playing field for neurodiverse learners, where they can demonstrate their abilities without facing any unfair disadvantage.
The following Awarding Organisations and End-Point Assessment Organisations have partnered with Cognassist to accept our Cognitive Diversity Assessment Report as evidence in their judgement of adjustments. These are the organisations demonstrating and leading the way for innovation and inclusion by completing the Neuro-Inclusion Charter training. Cognassist does not make or infer any decisions and all decisions are the right of the AO/EPAO.
