DSA Assessment

5.0 rating

My assessor was very welcoming throughout the online call. He was very knowledgeable about all the software one might need to assist them throughout their work life. He also understood very well the process to get the required equipment and made sure I understood the process well.
Thanks a lot 🙂

Excellent service

5.0 rating

My assessor was very nice and made me feel relaxed and comfortable. They asked lots of questions to ensure they could request the best equipment for my needs, without making it feel like an interrogation. I struggled to find the entrance to the centre and received excellent directions over the phone, as well as someone coming to meet me in the car park to make sure I didn’t get lost again!

My DSA assessment was very thorough and I felt that the assessor really tried to personalise my assessment and ensure I got exactly what would help me. I’m still in regular correspondence and have been well supported by all of the staff at the Surrey Assessment Centre. I have been provided with excellent and professional service.
