Becoming a centre
To offer any of our academic, vocational or work-based qualifications, your organisation must be one of our approved 'centres'. To start the process of becoming an approved Pearson centre, complete the relevant forms on this page and we'll be in touch to discuss next steps.
We will obtain a credit report from Dun & Bradsheet which will be used to determine the level of credit that can be granted.
Minimum spend threshold
There is an annual minimum spend requirement of £5000 for all Pearson approved UK colleges and work-based learning centres. Customers who we believe may be impacted by this, will be notified at the start of the academic year. Shortly after the end of our financial year (31 August), an invoice will be raised for the difference between actual spend and the £5000 threshold. Spend is calculated to include all purchases made between 1 September and 31 August net of VAT.
Centre approval fee
We'll be charging a one-off fee of £1000 upon successful approval as a brand new Pearson UK college or work-based learning centre.
Payment will be subject to Pearson's usual payment terms of 30 days. If you fail to pay in time, this will be a breach of the terms and conditions of payment and may lead to the withdrawal of approval.
