Just as investing in equipment is important to the development and success of a company, investing in employees – and looking at them as part of your business – is vital to a business’s success. bksb improves the support given to apprentices, employees, and employers, and our fully-hosted online platform, bksbLIVE 2, allows for access anywhere, and at any time, with the bksb process covering every angle for every learner. This support is so comprehensive that typically our clients’ success rates for Functional Skills are 17% higher than the national average.
The importance of good English, maths, and ICT skills has never been more apparent. It is no longer regarded as simply ‘good practice’ to offer training opportunities, with employers under more pressure than ever to provide access to learning for CPD for their staff. And apprentices are no exception; Ofsted are looking more closely at the opportunities provided for apprentices to improve their English, maths, and ICT skills. bksb helps employers satisfy inspectors by allowing both the learner and the employer to track and monitor their progress, as well provide data for evidencing achievement.
Selecting the right candidates for roles is crucial for every organisation. The bksb Initial Assessment has been used by organisations to assess a candidates’ English, maths, and ICT levels prior to interview. Most organisations require their staff to be working at least level 2, so by using the bksb solution, they are able to ensure that if employees need to upskill, they have the resources to do so.
