Home > New Product Launch

Customer Update (last updated 15/10/19):

The full versions of the new Initial Assessments, Diagnostic Assessments and Learning Resources are now available for all learners. Your organisation will have access to any of these products for which you have a current licence. These have been developed to meet the new standards for the Functional Skills Reforms.

  • Tutors will have to add the new courses in the usual way (see more details on the video below), and can then assign the new courses to students.

  • You will, of course, still have access to the existing assessments and resources, which are labelled as ‘Legacy’. The new courses are labelled ‘Reforms’.

  • The databridge has been updated. Simply open your databridge application, and it will automatically detect an update.

IMPORTANT: Please view these short guidance videos prior to accessing the new products, and share the page with colleagues who will be using the new bksb products. Also keep an eye on this page for updates and further guidance videos which will be added regularly.

For technical support, please go to, or contact our team on 01623 413333.

We would be delighted to receive any feedback you have on the new system. Please use this link or click ‘Feedback’ in the sidebar to submit bug reports or suggested improvements.
