From education to employment

Intequal selects CognAssist to help identify, support and fund learners with additional learning needs.

CognAssist is pleased to announce that Intequal (formerly The IT Skills Management Company) has selected CognAssist as part of its strategy to identify and support apprentices with additional learning needs.

The adoption of CognAssist will support Intequal’s learners with a unique blend of assessment for hidden learning needs and the provision of online learning resources. This will add to Intequal’s ongoing drive for quality improvements in IT apprenticeships across England.

Intequal’s Rod Harris, Head of Operations said that Intequal was pleased to add to its comprehensive support to learners with neurodiverse needs and that it will not only benefit the learners but the organisations they work for too:

‘CognAssist will directly benefit our learners with a simple online assessment of those with hidden learning needs. It then supports them further with a range of engaging learning support resources. We deliver our apprenticeships through blended learning so were attracted to the support this ‘CognAssist service offers our learners.’

They join over 60 other customers as CognAssist users, delivering support to over 20,000 learners with additional learning needs.
