In 2022 we joined forces with Eintech.

Together we established a new proposition for awarding organisations and large corporate and government clients, covering the spectrum of organisations’ assessment needs, including:

  • Online testing with remote proctoring
  • In-person UK Test Centres for high stakes examinations
  • E-portfolio for evidence-based qualifications
  • Tailored e-learning for course delivery

We are part of the Reed Group

We are part of the Reed Group, the largest family-owned recruitment company in the world. The Group was founded on 7th May 1960 when Sir Alec Reed, aged 26, opened his first Reed office in Hounslow with just £75.

We are a subsidiary of Reed in Partnership, one of the Reed Group companies and a leading provider of public services that change people's lives for the better.

We effectively work for charity one day a week, with 18% of the Reed Group owned by the Reed Foundation.

The Reed Foundation has provided seed funding for a number of charities, including Ethiopiaid, Womankind and Women at Risk. The Foundation is also behind The Big Give, which has raised over £191 million for thousands of charity projects.
