“Trafford Alternative Education purchased bksb in January 2018 , initially to support students in Literacy and Numeracy , taking online Functional Skills Maths and English. From the onset students have actively participated in the programme. (Previously , I had purchased another VLE which proved unsuccessful and did not engage the students.)
The diagnostic and initial tests results are beneficial to both teachers and learners, clearly outlining individual strengths and areas for improvement. Assessment data is now used to inform personal student targets and bespoke teaching for the Functional Skills courses. The tracking of progression is a useful tool, highlighting student success. The programme is learner centred and motivational, celebrating achievement via a certificate.
The addition of GCSE Maths/English and Science courses will also benefit our learners undertaking GCSE exams.”
