Set up a private centre & book exams

How does it work?

You can turn your venue into an exam centre by becoming a Private Centre. What this means is that our examiners will come out to you, and your learners can take their exams in your school, venue or space, without having to share it with anyone else.

 Becoming a Private Centre is free and easy. Follow the steps below to set up your venue as a Private Centre for LAMDA Exams.

The process
  1. Check our centre requirements

    We have a list of requirements that we need our private centres to fulfill in order to ensure the safety and well-being of both the learners and examiners. These include things like having rooms that suit exam conditions as well as having important policies written up and in place.

  2. Appoint a head of centre and a centre coordinator 

    A head of centre is responsible for making sure all our requirements are being met. A centre coordinator oversees the day-to-day operation of LAMDA Exams at the centre. They are responsible for managing the exam event, from booking right through to distributing the certificates, ensuring that everything goes smoothly.

  3. Register your venue 

    Complete the Centre Registration Form as well as one Centre Agreement for each person who has signed the Centre Registration Form. Return them to us by email with the subject 'New Centre Registration' and we'll process your application within 15 working days.
