We have become an assessment centre!

East Malling Assessment Centre, approved by City &Guilds (NPTC), was established in April 2017 as part of East Malling Short Courses.  This has been a natural progression for the training centre, which has grown to become successful and well regarded since its inception in June 2011.

NPTC was established more than 50 years ago as part of the City and Guilds Group it is the largest recognised awarding body within the environmental and land-based sectors for vocational qualifications.  Skills are assessed on the candidates experience, competence, technical knowledge and understanding, resulting in the candidate being assessed as ‘Competent’ or ‘Not Yet Competent’.

East Malling Assessment Centre is located on the picturesque East Malling Research Centre site. It is within easy access of the M20 motorway, East Malling train station and is situated a few miles west of Maidstone. It boasts its own classroom, which is available to other organisations to hire and it is also set up to be used for computer assessments as required.

The Centre works with a wide experienced team of trainers and NPTC approved assessors, who are all audited by external verifiers working within this industry.  We offer a wide range of courses, which can then be independently assessed.Please contact us if you are interested in training,  booking an assessment or becoming an assessor.
