Provide Trinity exams

Join a global community of educators who share our vision of ensuring their learners develop the skills needed in real life.

At Trinity, our educational approach is grounded in the nurturing of communicative skills, in achieving a positive impact in all that we do, and in the fundamental principle of inclusion.

As an independent educational charity we have been providing assessments around the world since 1877 for music, drama, combined arts and English language. Every year over 850,000 people take a Trinity exam in more than 60 countries world-wide.

When you become a Registered Exam Centre or Approved Service Provider with Trinity, you’ll be joining a supportive network of schools and organisations that are committed to excellence in teaching, learning and assessment.

Trinity English language exams are recognised not only for their unique approach to assessing communicative competence, but also for the positive impact they have on teaching practice, and skills development.

Our exams offer:

  • Carefully levelled stepping stones for student progression
  • Opportunities for personalisation as candidates bring their own choices and interests to the exams
  • Internationally recognised qualifications for learners at all ages and levels of ability
  • Ways to develop transferable skills that can be used for study, academic progression, and work
  • Conditions that support 'bias for best' where candidates are encouraged to demonstrate what they can do with language, and aren’t marked down for what they can’t do
