How is bksb used for Universities?

English and maths skills are vital for education, especially at a degree level. Our products can help you assess students’ current English and maths skills through initial and diagnostic assessments which meet the reforms standard.

This helps you to better understand a student’s current skill levels, address weaknesses and improve their chance of academic success.

Degree Apprenticehips

Since 2015, an increasing number of universities are offering degree apprenticeships as demand is rapidly rising and the range of apprenticeships is broadening.

As of May 2017, any learner taking a Level 3 apprenticeship or above must have achieved a Level 2 functional skills or GCSE (grade 9 to 4) before taking their end-point assessment. Our Focus Functional Skills products can help you assess a learner’s current level and develop weaknesses in their English and maths skills, helping pass their functional skills requirement of their apprenticeship.
