What is Gateway assessment

Gateway is an assessment of a detailed application by a potential participant for NPQSL, NPQH or NPQEL. This gives providers the information they need to judge the strengths and weaknesses of a participant, and to consider the likelihood that they will complete the programme successfully.  The information from the assessment will also enable the provider to decide whether a weaker applicant can be successfully taken onto the programme with additional or specific support.
