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 a minimum annual spend requirement of £3000 for all UK colleges and work-based
learning centres and we would usually raise an invoice for the difference between this and your actual spend. However, in order to support our customers during the impacts of COVID-19, we will not be enforcing the minimum spend requirement for 2019/20 and 2020/21 activity.
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.
