Scientific Content Copywriter

Scroll to content

Cognassist is the UK’s leading cognitive assessment and neurodiversity platform, working with over 100 of the UK's best education providers to transform the lives on learners. 1 in 5 learners in the UK leave education with no basic qualifications. Yes, it’s a scary statistic. Whilst we’ve made significant progress to reduce barriers to education in the UK, we’re still failing 20% of our learners.

Specifically, most learning providers, whether they’re universities, colleges, adult learning or apprenticeship providers struggle with:

  1. Easily identifying learners with additional needs
  2. Supporting those learners to succeed across their educational journey

That’s why we built Cognassist. To help every learner reach their full potential and empower learning providers for the future.

We’re on a mission to make sure, no learner is left behind.

Our platform offers a scalable and accessible digital cognitive assessment, personalised learner journeys with over 500 learning strategies and state of the art cognitive science training for learning providers. This year alone we’ve assessed over 85,000 learners, grown the marketing team by 100% and picked up Global Edtech Start Up of the Year award.
